can anyone tell me why programs developed in Visual Basic use so little of the CPUs capability?

What I mean is, I write simulation programs that are calculation intensive.  When I run a program that I have written and compiled in Visual Basic, and it is calculating, the CPU is only running at 30%.  

However, I have other, store bought programs, that use 90% of the CPU when they are running and doing calculation intensive stuff.

Why is this?  Is there a parameter in Visual Basic that can be changed to change this?

I am trying to decrease the time that my programs take to complete the calculation process... it can take hours depending on resolution and delta time of process.

Thanks for any help on this.
