Hello code gurus, I am running a W7 machine. I am finding that it runs to 100% CPU usage for no obvious reason. Mouse movement happens but any attempt at open, closing or switching between screen becomes cumbersome. If it moves at all it might be 5 or 6 minutes. I am finding this even on local connections to my external hard drives. Sometimes I just have to do a hard re-boot as nothing responds at all. Thinking it might be some goofy string, I have run CCleaner and Malwarebytes in the past. Neither seem to make a difference. Ran SuperAntiSpyware and found a few little trackers, got rid of them. Still having trouble. I use FFox and IE browsers. I usually do have about 5 Skype windows open as that is part of my connection with my company. My video card has 1gig processor on board. So I don't think its the graphics. I look at the various tabs of Task Manager and can see that FFox and Skype are at the top usage, followed by Thunderbird. Is this an issue with a recent MSoft update maybe? I ran the anti malware gambit to give you something to look at. Malwarebytes turned up nothing. Attaching the SuperAntiSpyware report from a few days ago. Not much there either. But maybe it will give you more clues. Thanks to all of you for your tireless help.
