  1. If you haven't cleaned that PC in a while now may be a good time to do so.... dust bunnies can cause all sort of problems including overheating, restricting air flow,etc.
  2. There's 1 other thing that might be causing the problem.
    They did a virus scan and it found a virus. It said "Over buffering in JPEG image could allow code excretion" hence cpu working harder.
