Hello there,

I have a folder called Mine in my C:/ drive. It runs a program called wincpu.exe that puts my

CPU at 100%, even when the laptop is idle. I have tried to end the program and the process

and neither works. I installed several different antiviruses to remove it and somehow none of

them detected it as malware or a virus. I don't know what to do know and now my laptop

takes ages to do stuff. I need help.



I solved the problem myself with an unlocker. It allows you to delete files even if they are being used.

I don't know how to delete this post so I edited it and if a moderator reads this, they can delete it.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
