  1. 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
  2. Hello! Sorry to bother, however I've noticed due to a lot of intensive fan noise that when I open my task manager CPU usage is at 100%, but almost instantly flips down to normal. I have run malwarebytes a few times as well as spyhunter 5, however I cant find anything.COuld you please help? Kind regards, Harry BH
  3. Every morning when my SP4 awakens from sleep, malwarebytes starts scanning, driving my cpu usage to 100% for around 10 minutes. To be fair, onedrive is another big contributor, but MBAM is especially bad. I would ideally like to throttle MBAM's cpu usage. Alternatively, I want to delay the scan. In looking at the malwarebytes service, I see that there are startup parameters, but they don't appear to be accessible. I'm hoping that there is a way to solve my issue. I am seriously thinking about dumping MBAM because of this annoying behaviour.
  4. So recently I've been receiving huge rubber banding and lag spikes while playing games on my computer. i know that my PC is completely capable of running these games at 60 fps with no problem and my ping is perfectly fine so i know it cant be my WiFi a week after this problem i decided to factory reset my PC because I've been planning on doing so but the issue still persist. I've also noticed that when i open my task manager for a split second my CPU is running at 50+% then its hurries back down to its normal 5-10%. I've ran plenty of malware bytes scans even with the rootkits option on but it says my PC is completely safe I've also ran McAfee scans but it also says that my pc is safe. "I'm sorry if my grammar is off i'm too lazy to be formal in this situation" Any tips or help would be appreciated Thank you for your time Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 9/26/19 Scan Time: 9:31 PM Log File: a271ab76-e0df-11e9-a615-f4390931a01c.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.627 Update Package Version: 1.0.12663 License: Free -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 18362.356) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: DESKTOP-R6TCKQL\ashir -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Threat Scan Scan Initiated By: Manual Result: Completed Objects Scanned: 280520 Threats Detected: 0 Threats Quarantined: 0 Time Elapsed: 0 min, 56 sec -Scan Options- Memory: Enabled Startup: Enabled Filesystem: Enabled Archives: Enabled Rootkits: Enabled Heuristics: Enabled PUP: Detect PUM: Detect -Scan Details- Process: 0 (No malicious items detected) Module: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Key: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Value: 0 (No malicious items detected) Registry Data: 0 (No malicious items detected) Data Stream: 0 (No malicious items detected) Folder: 0 (No malicious items detected) File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Physical Sector: 0 (No malicious items detected) WMI: 0 (No malicious items detected) (end)
  5. Greetings from the GREAT Country of TEXAS, This has been on going for several months seems to be travelin around my system, started with "WinAntiRansomWare," new program from WinPatrol site. Without any thing being done "WinAntiRansom" started using 80 - 90 % of my Processor, monitoring this using Mark Russonivich's "Prodcess Explorer." My system became very slow. Heard other members with "WAR" having like problems so I uninstalled "WAR" and that issue seemed to be resolved. After a couple of days it seems to have retruned this time Avast!FREE titled '2016' was the one with Hi CPU usage. So that was removed, uninstalled. All settled again and after a few days was back again this time using two (2) copies of "MBAM.exe" 30 - 35% on one copy and 40 - 45% on the other. Again removed MBAM Premium that is the PAID version. While not connected to the NET did a little looking around within the Registry finding a KEY entry that seemed to NOT have any connection with any software on my computer with some very strange DATA entries of alpha/numerics AND some ASCII charachters that could not be COPIED. When right clicking on the data title selecting "Modify" there was not any entry so selecting the "Binary Modify" did show much, about 1,944 entries yet could NOT be copied either. Found about four (4) RegKeys with similar information entered. Locations to follow: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\2f3e6df6f5 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\2f3e6df6f5 HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-4267585356-2186095281-715594798-1000\Software\2f3e6df6f5 HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-4267585356-2186095281-715594798-1003\Software\2f3e6df6f5 The third line above was shown in "WAR" registry monitoring, but; did NOT show in the Registry Editor even under Admin access. Later discovered it had misteriously disappeared. After discovering these entries and NO connection to any of my installed software, took the action of removing them, DELETED. Done OFF LINE! Proceeded to reinstall, "WinAntiRansom," "Avast! FREE '2016'," AND "MalwareBytes Antimalware Premium" AND 'PeocExpl' ahs since shown normal operations with "IDLE Processor Time" of about 88% - 97% when not running any scans nor on the web. Have used "FRST64.exe" before several times for 'Geeks-to-Go' and FireFox for MBAM. Because this is rather lenghty will attach those reports shortly. If you would like the "CheckResults.txt" also have the file to run that one after you request of course. FRST.txt Addition.txt
