Hi, I'm not sure if I'm infected or not.  Malwayrebyates and McAffee both say that I'm totally clean of malware/viruses.  But I can't think of anything that would be spinning up my CPU cycles when it's not being used. Oh, I also ran an ESET scan, which also reported completely clear of viruses.  Still, I can't think of anything that would do it.


Suggestions? Help?


Thank you!


I'm using Windows 8.1 which I just upgrade to yesterday. Perhaps it's something to do with the computer and not malware?


I have to admit, it only does it when I use a program or fire up the computer.  Perhaps this is a different issue.
