A lot of that was not needed in the post but let's get something straight here. Windows is not a quiet OS. It can jump about on the CPU and other meters without much notice or reason unless you are a seasoned programmer.
If you have a client that wants these meters to be smooth and consistent you won't be running Windows.
first of all, let me preface this by saying that I am sorry if this belongs into an existing discussion and that it may take a while for me to provide all the necessary explanations, but this problem is becoming somewhat unique, as I have tried a lot of things and am only a basic user.
So, since the creators update my old Laptop was lagging a lot, CPU and Co. (from task manager) wildly fluctuating from http://i68.tinypic.com/fm5j7p.png (*) ZERO to 100 within seconds. I deactivated almost every background process, scanned extensively for viruses, I changed NDU (?) values from 2 to 4 and a variety of other fixes off youtube and google with no success. Drivers updated, so was Windows.
Now, while I still pursue a solution there that isn't the hassle of formatting and installing an older version, as that too would and should update, I bought a new laptop as I needed one anyway. Now I just opened it and it too has what I as an amateur believe to be unreasonable usage values. Within 3 seconds they will jump through all the numbers. 1, 33, 68, 75, 2. That is for all 4 task manager "Process" values.
Before accepting this laptop by keeping it for more than 2 weeks, is this normal? If this is the same persisting issue as on my old laptop, I will return it, as this is one of the reasons for the purchase and not a minor one.

Of course the moment I want to take shots / clips the CPU ranges in a normal 1-4 percantage use.. but the numbers above literally just happened (*).
Again, if I haven't provided properly, LMK with patience, I find these places are often very insulting with little patient.
