    **I dont know why this comes out as one block of text someone help me please** Hi. I have been having this bizarre problem for the past few weeks and have tried everything I can think of to no avail. At first I noticed my CPU temperatures were way too high, and I noticed using RealTemp that the CPU load was 100%. Then when I opened the task manager to check what was happening it immediately goes back down near 0%. After a few weeks of trying to solve this the problem has somehow mo ved over to my GPU - 100% load then when I open task manager it goes back near 0%. This does not seem to happen 100% of the time buy I can't figure out what is different when it does. I figure this might be some kind of virus that hides itself when it is being monitored? So far I have run scans with malwarebytes, spybot and various other tools with nothing really coming up.
