I think it could be a windows update or the fact that I now have a dual monitor setup(this problem never occurred before installing the second monitor.

If you do a search on the net for cmdagent.exe high cpu usage, you will find a lot of complaints about this particular problem.

Cmdagent.exe is part of the Comodo Firewall and is known to cause high CPU usage. Sometimes a reboot is all that is needed to will resolve the problem.

Another solution is to download the latest version of Comodo Firewall, disconnect from the net, uninstall the old version, reboot and install the newest version you downloaded before reconnecting to the net.

Without a firewall, you are putting yourself at risk of malware infection which could cause far worse problems. If you don't want to reinstall Comodo Firewall, then install another.

Free firewalls: (choose and install only one)Choosing a firewall is a matter of personal preference, your technical ability/experience, features offered, the amount of resources utilized, how it may affect system performance and what will work best for your system. A particular firewall that works well for one person may not work as well for another. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your use.

I forgot to add that I did re-install Comodo firewall and anti-virus. I know that it is better to have an exclusive anti-virus but I only use FF with Noscript+flashblock.
