Are you sure you are looking at the CPU usage graph? You can find several widgets that will also do this for Windows. Here is one:

Windows Desktop Gadgets - All CPU Meter Version 4.6

I also believe that NT7 will only use one core thread for all charts. For backtesting it will use all cores, but for charts just one. This is only from memory and I could be wrong, so if someone knows for sure they can correct me. NT8 will be addressing this and it was discussed in detail in the last two futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars on NT8.

You also want to start with just a basic chart with no indicators when working with performance issues. There are many seemingly innocent indicators which are very poorly written that will consume a lot of CPU cycles and are highly inefficient. Start with a blank slate and slowly add one indicator at a time until you find the problem child.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Yes only one core is used by NT. I have a quad xeon x3360 and it is between 8% and 12% with nt and 4 screens and 12 charts loaded.
