High CPU for small tests

I'm currently learning Loadcomplete, and one of the first things I've noticed is the amount of CPU used by it. For a basic script of four web pages and four virtual users, the local CPU goes up to 100%. This is on a 1.9Ghz i5 PC with 8Gb of memory. 


I've checked task manager and it's definitely the load test that is taking the CPU. I'm unable to test too high (both because of the virtual user limit and the AUT), but I wouldn't expect four virtual users to do this.


Is there anything I can look at to find out why it's so bad?


(Edit: setting up and running the test on a remote agent also shows 100% CPU, similar spec to the local PC).
