Hello,
so i was using my computer as usual, but my computer started to randomly crach and shut off. Everytime i check my cpu bar it shows 100%, there are alyways ~70 process runing, but all soft are off. For example teamwiever 8 process is running even when its not running. What should i try and do?

scan your computer for viruses. your cpu usage should not be at 100% all the time

Hi :) 

There is a Virus that does that...it hides when you open task manager...

MALWAREBYTES + NORTON 2013 SCAN...

All the best Brett :)

Tryed it, it found 6 infected files, now my computer turns off when i play games or do stuff that requires CPU. by the way, when i open task manager, i see that cpu usage is 100% , but after a moment manager shows that there is - 1 processes

Hi :) 

You NEED to UPDATE it several times, before you scan...until it says no updates available....

Then Run a FULL SCAN (Takes between 1 to 2 hours) ...NOT a quick scan that takes around 3 minutes...

Hi :) 

Try it in safe mode or boot from the Norton disc...

All the best Brett :)
