As soon as I start Cubase 6,when I check in Task manager,the CPU shoot to 99% without any audio or vst or midi tracks

loaded.It stayed like this even when I load audio or midi tracks with vst’s but eventually pops and crackling noises are heard when I play fast on keyboard and system freezes.

My PC configuration is:
I7 Core processor 960@ 3.20Ghz
Memory 12gb
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit

DAW Cubase 6.1 64 bit.

Any help from somebody please.Thank you
