Hello and thanks for your help. I recently used Bleeping Computer to solve an issue but Im not so certain all issues were taken care of. The mod said I was finished and my computer was clean but the CPU seems to run at excessive rates. Not sure what to do.

The first thing you need to do is to identify the process causing the high CPU utilization and where it is running from. Windows Task Manager does not provide enough information. These are tools to investigate running processes, programs that run at startup, services and gather additional information to identify them and those consuming high processor usage:These tools will provide information about each process, CPU usage, file description and its location. Most of them are stand-alone apps in a zip file so no installation is necessary.
