I have no programs opened but my cpu is running at 90+-%=. I checked in task manager and it says that Explorer.exe is running at say amount. like i said there are no programs running in the background or forground. the cpu useage is just idling at around 90%.
restarting my PC fixes the problem. but from time to time this still happens.
what is causing this?
my system specs are in my profile if your wondering.
Im running windows 7 pro 64-bit
intel q9400 O/C 3.2 GHz
Asus P5Q Turbo
4GB DDR2 1066 Mushkin
if you need to know anything else, like i said, my full system specs are in my profile.
Avast is great, but boot to safe mode w/networking, hit it with malware bytes, spybot s&d, super antispyware, then maybe run a preboot scan with avast. You should catch most things lurking if anything is wrong there.
i ran avast came up clear. you cant run boot scans with a 64 bit OS, tonight i will hit it with widows malicious software removal tool, malware bytes. see what it comes up with.. probably nothing, I'm a really safe surfer after-all, I know what not to click on. but like anything, human error can come into affect.
yes, the total CPU usage just hovers around 90%. I call it idle because nothing is running, as in i dont have any load on it, there are no background programs with any load on them, there are no programs open period.
Iv hit it with everything i got in safemode, Malware bytes, windows malicious software removal tool, avast 5.0. everything comes up clean as a whistle.
when still from time to time like once every day or 2. I will notice that my CPU monitor is running hard, all 4 cores are being worked up to around 90% usage. I check task manager in the processes and its Explorer.exe eating up all the usage. can't figure out why.
