Im pretty new to this forum, but am sure that I will be able to get some guidance with this issue. Issue lies with a Acer Laptop equiped with a AMD Athlon 64 running Windows seven premium. Computer recently started acting slow after a Kaspersky Virus scan and virus removal. When checked in task manager, CPU usage remains at 100% or close after booting. Just simply trying to open any folder takes forever and CPU usage shoots and remains at 100%. The tricky thing for me is that Under processes, the calculation of processes being used doesn't add up to usually more that 20%, however cpu usage shows 100%. There are no inividual process that is being showed that is utilizing the processor. Virus scan, ccleaner, Malwarebytes and super antispyware doesn't show any active threats. Msconfig set to boot only the essential services doesn't fix. Safe mood work fine, so I kinda thinking it isn't a hardware issue. Windows update is current. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Vybz,

I had this issue. I experience extreme hardware failure as a result of the heat generated from the CPU. Over $2,000 in damage. If you don't know what to do, I would shut the computer down until you have a course of action. Use another computer to research what needs to be done. Keep the computer shut down as much as possible. Nothing good can come from running your computer in this condition.

I also had issues with Kaspersky. My recommendation from my experience would be to download Avast anti-virus to your desktop. Avast is free and remarkably works great. Unistall Kaspersky. Then install Avast. This did "help". It did not solve the problem. Getting the heat issue under control is critical to the survival of your computer.

I tried system restore, but when I checked there were no available restore points.

I will try removing Kaspersky and installing Avast. Thx. ( keeping fingers crossed)
