Lol, maybe, its probably just your system idle processes or your anti-virus doing background scanning.

lastly: leave the judgement for the moderators

porn sites are like the most prevelant genre on the internet, and the statistics of internet users who have looked at online porn are probably MIND BOGGLING

I wouldn't be suprised if you have a virus or malware, in addition a lot of programs come with programs that run in the background 24/7 which are unecessary and should be disabled, also some anti virus software isn't as streamlined as others, could be a number of things

Ny_driver, would it be possible for you to provide a screen shot of the "Processes" tab from the Task Manager?

Let us know

Good luck

Youra6, click the check box, "Show processes from all users" (under the Processes tab via Task Manager). That should show everything. Another great application that will provide more details on the background processes would be "Process Explorer". This is a small app from Microsoft


Good luck

Go to start menu, click on run then type msconfig and then try disabling all the junk services, that should help a bit.

here.........looks like avg is running although it's turned off. There's a lot of unnecessary (I need to read the TOS) running I'm sure. I need to get it straightened out.
The screenshot is almost 3 MB.....it won't upload. i'll upload it when I figure out how to shrink it.

Don't use AVG. I tried the free version, ran a full scan and it found nothing but tracking cookies. I ran MalwareBytes and that found two confirmed viruses just on the quick scan. Plus it only scans when you want it to scan, manually activated.

MalwareBytes
Spyware Blaster
Router or other hardware firewall
Windows Firewall or any other decent software firewall
Firefox (instead of IE)

That should make you 99.99% virus free for a long time, and with minimal resource use.

Imageshack.us Upload it there and then post it using the image tag.

Also, the System Idle Process will not cause a CPU fluctuation like that. System Idle is exaclty that, idle. It's the unused CPU %. Sounds like you have some processess and or services running in the background.

As for the virus suggestions, could be. Run AVG, MalwareBytes, and Spybot S&D.

Here is what ya do.

1. Download AVG, MWB, and SB S&D.
2. Install them all.
3. Run AVG, then MWB, then SB S&D.
4. Reboot into safe mode.
5. Repeat step 3.
6. Reboot into regular Windows.

Should remove just about anything you have that you wouldn't want.

I'm assuming your cpu is just slowed down to save power, but with whatever running its not fast enough. So its sped back up, and your cpu usage will drop because its the percentage of the current cpu speed. Then it may raise if your cpu slows down again to save power.
