I noticed today that for whatever reason, my cpu usage has been jumping so rapidly from any number to 100% and generally staying there for several seconds before dropping to about 80%.
I have firefox open, task manager open and I had malware bytes open.
There is two things on here that make me uncertain and all the research I've done thus far indicate that two of the items may be virus'. csrss.exe and winlogon.exe.
The only reason I think that is that when clicking on them (right click) I can't open to where the file should be. They also are not showing up under my user name.
Malware bytes picked nothing up...but I am still concerned and it makes my stomach twist because I don't want to be having to send this in to fix it...or what not.
Any help is appreciated, thank you~
Edit: I am using Windows 7.
I also ran CCleaner earlier to clear some stuff up.
AVG also never picked up anything, and while in task manager I clicked 'see all running processes' and saw that there were 2 csrss.exe's and winlogon.exe's, both listed under system.
Nevertheless I am confused as to why I keep spiking high cpu and high physical memory. Should I consider a system restore?
