My computer is running almost constantly at 100 CPU.  After eliminating almost all running programs on it, I ran rkill.exe to see if there was a virus somewhere (as well as other malware programs).  Rkill displays the following message:


FontCache => %SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalService [Incorrect ImagePath]


When I look at photos, the CPU usage goes way up....... Is the message above a serious problem, and can it be causing the high CPU usage rate?

I'm getting the same message from Rkill and while my CPU is not at 100% I would love to get some more information about this message. Thanks

That is probably non-important message, I get it too...

It look like a virus issue. You should open a topic in malware removal section by following the guidelines.
