    Hi guys. I have a pretty ugly problem with my windows 7. i have a 2.7 Ghz dual core processor & 2.5Gb ram memory and i'm running windows 7 since it appeared on the market. In the past month or so, i started to notice that my cpu is constantly staying over 50% even when i don't have any program running. if i'm trying to play any game or browse the internet...or watch a movie, my pc moves very slow.
    I watched task manager for a while and i noticed that there is for example only one program using 50-60% cpu, let's say firefox (again this is just an example). ok, i use "end process" on firefox. as soon as it closes, the next process in task manager list starts to use 50-60%cpu. if i end that process too, another process comes up and uses too much cpu, and so on.
    I installed avast antivirus, and malwarbytes, scanned my pc, nothing worked. i even formatted my hdd (full format, not only one partition), reinstalled win 7 (multiple times, different versions), after this it worked fine for ~ one day, then again...same problem.
    If i install win xp it's working fine. And the same thing happened on my laptop , so i think it may be some kind of virus but i can't find it :confused:. Do you have an idea what could be the issue?

    Thanks and have a good day.

    What's the brand name and model name and model number of that computer?

    Is it running Windows 7 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Download MGADiag to your desktop.

    Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.

    Click "Continue".

    Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).

    Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.

    Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.
