!!UPDATE!! Figured out what was happening! I am doing some boinc stuff for astronomy and it is supposed to work when i am afk, but it was working in the middle of me using the computer, it takes all my CPU to use and that is where i was running into problems, I suspended it and all my problems went away.

Hello everyone, thanks for always helping me out in my time of need!
My computer specs are (with idle temp),
Operating System
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
CPU
AMD FX-8320 60 °C
Vishera 32nm Technology
RAM
4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 802MHz (10-10-10-28)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. M5A97 R2.0 (Socket 942) 23 °C
Graphics

I should have a lot of speed with my cpu, but I have 8 instances of something called period_search_10210_windows_x86_64sse3.exe taking up over 10% CPU each

Please help! And again, my thanks.

Check your installed programs and look for a program call GTPSearch. It is part of the folding at home group of programs. If you find it uninstall it, it is not a virus.

Modernwarfare, I tried end processing everything and even suspending the searches and they just reboot instantly. I can't get rid of them and they are always there even if I reboot.

Ahnilated, I checked my list of programs and I couldn't find anything called GTPSearch, I searched my entire computer and couldn't find anything called GTPSearch.

I made a dump file of the process, if anyone thinks it might be useful.

I made the test account and it wasn't idling at 100% and I didn't have the processes. Hmm! It still isn't fixed on my main account though...
