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
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.
