100% CPU Usage

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, first off I would like to say thank you for taking the time to read this thread. Anyway I will continue with the problem. So I run a fairly new system, 8GB of RAM and an i7-2600. 


For some reason it is running at 100% CPU usage all the time, on all 8 cores. 


Is there a virus on my system? Perhaps a silent bitcoin miner or something of that sort?


Would love to supply any more info to help you, here is a picture of task manager. Which is odd because it doesn't show any processes using a bunch of CPU leading me to believe it is malicious.

100% CPU usage, yet no process using a lot of CPU? http://gyazo.com/8001fb48c6b138c60afe053681cf91a4
