Not long ago, my cpu usage skyrocketed and was causing my computer to constantly crash, I cleaned it out and replaced my cpu cooling unit and fans on the assumption it was simply over heating. This seemed to help a lot. Now however it has started up again it seems. Basically I purchased Saints Row IV off steam, and the first day I ran it it was fine. I had it running in the background, and tried to launch Guild Wars 2 and it was lag city, so I ended up closing Saints Row IV but I was still laggy, after restarting my computer, it was running around 45% on cpu, which is seeming very high. Also again launching Saints Row IV to play, it was lagging and was unplayable. I do meet all the systems minimum reqs as well. For some reason my cpu spikes up to 100% often when I start the program. I am concerned that there may be some issue with either my cpu, or a viral issue. I have no idea why this just started up again.
Right now as I type this I am running at around 69% when earlier today it was at about 15% before a restart.
Thank you ahead of time.
