I've been getting weird gpu usage after I reinstalled my drivers to fix a driver problem, sysinternals shows that no programs are using the 30% of the gpu, but afterburners shows that there is, this triggers the fan to get really loud.

Any clue on what this could be?

Thanks in advance.

The left picture is too small.. Can't really see anything. But are you sure you don't have any malware?

I've scanned with malwarebytes and norton 360, found nothing. I just used the left pic to show the gpu usage of the processes, from what you can see added up is nowhere near the msi afterburner usage.
