Hi all,

My PC works fine while I'm working on it. But it acts very suspiciosly!

When ever I let it go idle, it bursts with activity. Hard disk and CPU go to 100% usage. When i check resource monitor, i see over 200 created hard disk acesses, and dozens of DLLs start running.

They all shut themselves down within 20sec of my user activity.

I haven't ever noticed my PC do this before. I don't recall ever telling it to work on anything while it's idle.

Avast tells its users that the current trend in malware is high stealh. I wonder if a high stealth malware is trying to corupt my PC while I'm idle.

but before acting to detect a high stealth malware, I want ask : is this a new normal behaviour? Maybe windows is trying to update without jamming up my system while im using my PC.

* I've got windows fully updated. But still the behaviour persists. And it doesn't explain all the strange non windows programs on the CPU,harddisk and network registers.
