Hello, I have had my computer for several years now and recently have had issues with its CPU usage. Upon opening the Task Manager, CPU usage is always very high (above 80%, close to 100%). After about two seconds, the CPU usage falls down to normal percentages, below 10%. Not every time, but sometimes during the two seconds in the Task Manager where the high CPU usage is visible, the culprit seems to be "System interrupts." I've read many similar threads, but none have had solutions that fix my issue. I've run Malwarebytes Premium and AdwCleaner, and even after quarantining any potential threats, the issue persists. What I've gathered from reading posts on other forums from people with this problem is that this could be caused by some cryptovirus mining behind the scenes. Any help is extremely appreciated. My Setup: AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core Processor 4.00 GHz 16 GB RAM Windows 10 I've read the thread available here which features a very similar issue: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/241749-cpu-usage-high-until-i-open-task-manager/ Unfortunately, my attempts with Malwarebytes haven't been as successful. Thanks in advance. Attached is a video of what I see from the task manager. problem.mp4
Hello, I've been given this very old Core2Duo desktop and I plan to use it for office work. It's been quite sluggish however, which shouldn't be happening when doing simple tasks like web browsing or editing a word document. Upon inspecting the task manager I've found that this process constantly taxes the CPU, going so far as to 50% CPU usage and resulting in frequent lag spikes. How do I proceed? I've attached the logs asked in the stickies, along with a screenshot of my task manager so you can better see what I mean. Thanks for your time. FRST.txt Addition.txt
Hi, I am writing on behalf of a friend who asked me for help, but I don't know how to help him, in practice from today on his PC starts "sppsvc" and makes the cpu reach 30%, I suppose windows is cracked, but he the pc took it like this, so how could it be solved? Thank you
Greetings, Malwarebytes forums. For the past few weeks, my laptop has been running very slowly, with high temperature (the CPU even reaches 100C on some occasions, with the core voltage exceeding 20V per core). The fan would ran at max speed even when the whole system is in idle mode (I do open a few programs related to my work, but all of them are network-related stuffs and in idle mode). Curious, I checked the Task Manager and see one of my workplace apps consuming exactly 25% of CPU. Occasionally it would dip or raise above that level but it would revert back to utilizing 25% of the CPU (an i5-2520M@2.5). Even more curious is the fact that if I force close the application in question, the 25% CPU utilization would be transfer to another apps previously in idle mode (with 0% CPU usage), even as far as transfering that utilization to explorer.exe and jusched.exe, which is entirely unrelated and would never consumes that huge amount of computing power. Thus, I suspect that my laptop is infected with some kind of crypto miner designed to run at 25% of system resources. Even more curious still is the fact that if I turn off everything, or restarting the system, the CPU utilization would return to a normal level. So what is wrong with my system and how should I proceed to remove this threat? I'm worried that if this continues, my laptop would turn into a pile of plastic and steel garbage pretty soon. P/s: My colleague has an identical laptop with an identical set of work-related apps, and his experienced no problem so far.
