Relisted: CPU permanently at 70%+, HjackThis log included

Unread postby adrienspawn » July 28th, 2008, 11:57 pm

My CPU is always working but I don't know on what. At first it was on one of many svchosts, but now I just looked and it was a certain launcher.exe taking like 50%. I don't know what's going on but clearly there's something wrong with the high CPU usage.

I have used Crap Cleaner 2.4 to clean along with registry cleaning to no avail.

I also have Authentium Antivirus SDK that I can't uninstall but that's less of a problem. I've heard of other people with this problem that haven't been able to get rid of it though.

Mainly I just want to get my CPU idling at 0-10% like normal, because it always at 65C and goes up during games, instead of the 30-40 it should be idling at with a Zalman cooler.

Thanks in advance, these forums look great!

It is possible that your difficulties may be related to the peer-to-peer program(s) running on your system.

Due to the excessive number of infected systems running peer-to-peer filesharing programs, it has been necessary to institute a new policy regarding those programs. Please read...


If you still require assistance, it will be necessary for you to first uninstall all peer-to-peer filesharing programs. Once that has been done, please start a fresh topic and wait for a helper to assist you.

This topic is now closed. If you still require help, please start a fresh topic after you have uninstalled all P2P filesharing programs.
