Malwarebytes (MWB) threat scan is driving my PC into 100% utilisation and shutdown, often when I'm away from my desk. It's affecting my work and general computer use big time. There may have been external manipulation of my machine as I've been hacked numerous times, and MWB's settings have been hacked and manipulated numerous times, mainly involving turning off layers of security. I've set a user password in MWB now which has helped me get control of MWB, and now this overheating overutilisation of CPU has started. Even with my fan settings changed to Turbo, my CPU's are overheating and shutting down PC at times. I'm disappointed how easy it is to hack MWB and I've had 2 trojan intrusions recently which I've removed. Rather than data destruction, these trojans seemed to be focussed on monitoring my activity , data mining and getting identity data assumedly for banking access. Windows defender picked up these trojans- not MWB. any help with CPU overload would be appreciated.
