  1. My CPU is working hard on something and I don't know what it is. Attached is the hijackthis log.

    When playing games as well, suddenly games starts hanging like cpu is being used somewhere else. When I exit, it remains at 0% for sometime, then again starts spiking. I am not sure what the problem is..


    Plz help...

    PS. Excuse me if this is not the correct forum....redirect if needed.

    try to disable trend micro , if this doesn't help , go to task manager\processes , and see the process that takes a lot of cpu usage and end it.

    Well first post the name of it on here, don't want to kill a process that is necessary.
    It most likely could be svchost.exe
