Hows it going?
I recently reinstall Windows 7 from DigitalRiver a few days ago and everything seemed fine but Sunday i almost did a bogus Google Chrome installation but MalwareBytes Pro caught the threat and i removed it. Ever since then my CPU usage has been fluctuating from around 30 at the lowest and i've seen it reached a 100 a few times. It usually runs pretty high in Task Manager when i'm browsing on Chrome or Firefox as well. I installed Process explorer to try to find anything suspicious but didn't find much. I've ran TDSS, MalwareBytes Pro, and Super Anti-Spyware in Safe Mode and out of Safe Mode, didn't find anything. I have screenshots of my processes in both Task Manager and Process Explorer in Word documents but i'm not sure how to post them in this forum.
Too be honest, I noticed my PC was fluctuating in the past before i re installed Windows again so my next guess is that it might just be a hardware issue. I've had problems with this Inspiron since i bought it in 2011.
I'm planning on doing one more scan with Malwarebytes and Avast. Windows is showing the update notification/exclamation point so after the scan i'll restart it and see what happens. In the meantime can anyone help me post these screen shots?
