je11zi5084yTrying running updates again too, it may be a virus but I've also heard stories of certain updates not applying/failing and causing a lot of busy resources when they are constantly trying to update again in the background. I had 80% CPU usage all day once because an update was trying to install in the background and just cycling.
Try uninstalling updates
@Redo there's no reason why cpu should run more then 2-3% after everything is loaded it's possible windows guys put in infinite loop but ain't likely...
So just gave a quick look
PS ... Viruses have been known to actually only work properly after an update i.e the version you had couldn't now it can again... Rare ish thou
That works like a charm
Redo11154yUPDATE(?): The System process was the one causing the 40-50% cpu usage, and when i looked deeper into it turned out to be ntoskrnel.exe.... Which is the kernel... And from what i gathered it is caused by a faulty driver (yay) so i'm going to have to update all drivers to fix said problem.
Thanks for the help!
