High CPU Usage until task manager is oened

Recommended Posts

Title says all, I've ran a full scan of Malwarebytes and it did not detect anything. I started noticing the problem today, a few weeks ago I noticed games that I was once getting 60fps dropped to 10-20 fps and fans were going at full speed and are extremely loud. I installed an external tool that shows CPU usage and I noticed when I opened task manager the the external tool showed CPU usage dropping down to 10% when it was at 80% usage. I believe I have a Bitcoin miner, is their anything I can do to find and delete it or is it just a hardware problem?

Hello @Helmaroc

Sorry to hear you're having PC issues. Please run the following and we'll see what we can find

 

 

Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.

STEP 01

  • If you're already running Malwarebytes then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and select Scan and let it run.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the View Report button, then the Export button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know in your next reply.

STEP 02

Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a checkmark here.
