Hello everyone, I'm using a computer that I've noticed has a huge spike in CPU usage until I open Task Manager, at which point the program eating up the CPU closes so fast that I cant read what its name was. I've scanned using Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and they have found no threats, but I know that this is probably not a thing that should be happening normally and is most likely malware. I've seen the thread about what to do when you think you're infected and I used Farbar Recovery Scan Tool to scan my computer, and I've put the logs below. Any ideas of how I could get this CPU-eating menace off my computer? Thanks a bunch
Recently I've been getting this problem where whenever I click on my Task Manager application there's a glimpse of my CPU at 100% but then lowering down to 5% during normal browsing. I have heard that this may be a bitcoin miner virus that got installed onto my computer. I've tried things like Malwarebytes scans multiple times but nothing has been detecting it. It'd be very nice to receive direct support to understand what has been ticking this CPU usage off and why it returns to normal once task manager is opened.
