CPU usage question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
after i got some malware part of it being virtumonde.dll i've noticed that sometimes from looking on the task manager my cpu will show spiking between 20-50% when i am running absolutely no applications or unusual processes in the background. i am confused because that usage will then go on top of whatever process that i want to run and it will slow my computer down quite a bit.

I use Process Explorer to get an idea of if I have anything running that shouldn't be. After that I'll do as die991 suggested and use an anti-malware application to sniff it out but I have only ever gotten 1 virus so I don't have much experience with getting rid of them.
