    I 've been having this problem for some weeks now. Some minutes after pc starts GPU skyrockets to 98% load on idle. Im thinking it is a bitcoin miner virus maybe but no task seems to be using my GPU. It apears that GPU core load stucks at 98% but GPU usage remains relevant to the task i am doing, though fps drops significantly and games become unplayable. Please help :(

    Hello and welcome to TSG,

    Use the instructions in the following link to show hidden files:



    Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
    • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press Scan button.
    • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
    • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

    Post those logs in your next reply....
