My laptop is running at 100% cpu usage with only 5 proccess's running, but when I open tuneup task manager and check, that cpu % of all the apps running only adds up to 73%.

I have uninstalled norton update (ccSvcHst.exe) and it didn't help.

I thought it might be malware and originally posted in the malware section.

The helper from malware removal said to post a link to the orignal topic. http://www.geekstogo...-100-cpu-usage/

Thanks.

I may not add up right due to how your notebook support its graphics. Still 73% is high if it is sitting up there.

What do you mean, only 5 "processes"?

From TM > Performance tab, can you see in there what is using your CPU resources?

Sorry it was 5 applications running and 57 processes.

When I clicked on "reply to topic" the cpu jumped to 100% , and now next to the firefix icon in TM it says "Replying to windows 7 running at 100%"

Why are you running the virus removal tool? That should not be running unless you have a virus and are trying to remove it. That is not Kaspersky Anti-Virus.

Again, TM should tell you which application and process is eating the most up.
