My computer is running windows 8, and suddenly started running slowly. When I open the task manager, it tells me that the CPU is using 99% - sometimes the disk usages jumps up as well.
The strange thing is, when I use the task manager to find the application or process, which are taking all the CPU, it is just randomly selects an app that gets a high % of the CPU. If I close the app that takes a lot of CPU, it just gives another app a high amount of CPU usage.
But if I open almost anything on the computer, that specific application will be given a high CPU % - that counts for all apps, but not windows itself. I been monitoring the CPU temperature, but it is below 40 Celsius. I tried to scan the computer with McAfee, but it stalls at 51% at an element name “rootkit”
I’ve been researching a lot to solve the problem, but I can’t do it on my own :’(
Okay, so i got Ubuntu to work on the computer, and it's running fast and smoothly - the CPU usage is "okay"
I also removed "cryptinno" with mcafee, but the CPU usage is still high when using windows
