Posted problem to virus forum here, title, 'one of six cores at 100%'
Helped by nasdac, but no problem was found. (One of six cores running at 100% Not sure if this is malware.)
The problem, once again, The computer was built about Three months ago, ran fine. It still is running fine, but about a month and a half ago, I noticed core #6 always at about 100% usage. (Except when running combofix, when usage went down to 75%)
I have kernal view turned on in task manager, and the usage does look like kernal usage. (red).
I reflased the BIOS. No change.
I reloaded windows 7, no change.
There are log files in the virus forum.
Thanks for looking.
