Hello all. ok so I have an nvidia 1080ti . ever since around new years i have had this strange problem keep reoccurring , when i play any game ,it is like i am in slow motion .
i do notice strange behavior while analyzing my resource meters. disks reading and writing ,cpu spikes. the first time I fixed it by running win tool box.
then it happened again about a week later. I contacted nvidia supportand they walked me through deleting all my nvidia drivers and installing a clean install etc.
that worked as well for a bit . then it happened again and i was able to system restore to fix it , but now nothing seems to fix it . I feel like my gpu is being used to mine crypto
or something . i did find an nvidia folder in the windows folder and inside of it was a program called wintask.exe. I am just gonna assume since it was in the wrong folder
it is not something i need. but i scanned it and malware bytes can't find anything wrong anywhere. i ran process explorer and i see conhost rundll pops up in bright pink every so oftern
but i scanned that and it said no problems . any help would be greatly appreciated. I did run rkill and it found a pup/gen. not sure what that is exactly . i have attached my rkill log ,a gpuz log Rkill.txt 2.27KB 0 downloads Rkill.txt 2.27KB 0 downloads
