I'm a first time poster. I honestly do not know what to do or what may be the problem.
For some reason my PC's CPU is always running and it appears to be downloading something onto my PC. I gave Windows XP SP3, using Avast Internet Security (current ), I tried fixing whatever is happening--- to no avail.
I have Malwarebytes, CCleaner, AdBlockPlus, NoScript and all are current.
My system was custom built.
If you need more info please let me know. I know this request probably sounds strange,
however, I have no clue what's happening. All I know is it started with the current program release of Avast. But, then 2 days ago--out of no where my Microsoft Updates tells me I have 21 updates to download and install...????
Thank you in advance for any assistance you could provide.
