High Usage on CPU/GPU In Windows 8.1

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

Basically my monitor is broken and Im sending it back but in the middle of watching a youtube video the picture started to freeze and windows started running really really slow
Checked gpu and cpu and both said they were running at 100% just using windows and 62c on gpu and 80c on cpu

I dont know whats going on, I hope my gpu isnt broken again had to get it replaced once already
My computer has been very loud for a few hours after this incident so I hope someone can help asap

Thanks

Are you sure it's not malware using your system resources for ie mining?

When I go into task manager the cpu usage drops to like 10% but it says speed: 4.12ghz when ive never overclocked my i5 4670k it should be 3.40ghz stock?

In my case I had a nasty bitcoin mining malware virus called ieutil.exe using 100% of my gpu and causing my system to crash.

After killing the process in task manager I was able to use my antivirus to find and kill the threat and all was back to normal.
