Constant 100% CPU usage on idle (period_search_10210_windows_x86_64sse3.exe)
!!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.

go to task manager and click "Show processes from all users" and see whats taking alot of cpu usage and end it.
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.
