Recently I realized that explorer.exe was using too much cpu, floating between 30% to even 70% of CPU's overall usage, even if nothing but explorer is open. Even if I close the explorer's windows themselves, explorer.exe runs in high percentages in background, even though I do absolutelly nothing.
(sorry, I'm brazilian so my windows it's in portuguese - also, sorry, English isn't my first language, feel free to correct me.)
So I scanned my pc with MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware and even Avast Free. No malwares was found.
Then I ran a system check inside SuperAntiSpyware and looked for potencially harmful programs, registry, rootkits, whatever. Also, I checked system's integrity with sfc /scannow, all was right.
Finally, I thought that it may be due to junk files, temp and so on, so I cleaned up with ccleaner, and although it deleted like 8gb, nothing changed in explorer's performance. All was right, except explorer's performance.
So I downloaded microsoft's Process Explorer to explore what the heck was using it, and found that the highest cpu's consuming threads, like 99% of the high cpu usage we see in explorer's cpu's usage, it's this Audioses.DLL+0x1141b0.
I scanned audioses.dll in virustotal, nothing was found. Also scanned my explorer.exe in virustotal and nothing still.
Now I don't know what to do. Searched online for solutions and couldn't find any, strange, I thought, given that so many people seems to be with the same problem.
I also created a minidump file of explorer.exe, thought it may be useful.
Don't know when this started, but it's been a while already, like several days.
So... anyone please help?
