I need your help.

Issue description:

Low FPS in games; Witcher 3 went from 50-60fps on high to 10-20fps on ANY setting; same with Rainbow Six Siege and GTA 5.

High GPU Load (90%+) and temperature (53°C) when idle.

Things I tried:

Clean install of nvidia drivers with DDU

Driver rollback from the latest to 358.91

I would get normal performance after restart but the issue would come back within 5-10mins.

I ran the Rkill and it killed 3 processes; this temporarily solved the issue until a restart.

Scanned with Malwarebytes for rootkits, found 1 but it is quarantined and the issue still persisits

What do I do?
