(Not sure if this is the correct forum for the topic but I do run Win7.)
The past few days CPU usage has been sometimes 100% with the fan running nonstop.
I have been watching the Task Manager and I noticed that Firefox shows up in TM not once, but twice, sometimes three or four times, with varying memory usage.
Right now for instance it says this:
Firefox.exe *32 223,860 K
Firefox.exe *32 77,256 K
Firefox.exe *32 17,104 K
I have ONE tab open, this one I'm in right now.
Any ideas about this? When I log out of FF by the way, the whole system calms down.
Also Malwarebytes uses a lot, over 300K.
I am worried to burn out my hard drive.
A few months ago I bought a new internal battery so I doubt it has anything to do with that.
Maybe the age of the unit? Is my laptop about to bite the dust?
