Hi There,

Have a very strange problem that has only started occuring in the last day or so and as far as im aware have made no changes to my machine. My CPU usage at idle is between 70-90 percent fixed (not fluctuating). I have scanned with malwarebytes, spybot s&d, housecall, avira anti virus, CC Cleaner I have stopped all services but microsoft ones, and stopped certain software on startup. Other than restoring a backup i made a year ago i dont know what else to do, could this be hardware related?

In processes (all users) it says System 90 percent cpu, under the description it says NT Kernel & System. I have tried searching other forums but people mainly seem to have this issue with vista.

Im on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. AMD Quadcore phenom 2 processor, 4GB Ram.

I have attatched a highjack this log file if this is any help.

Really hope some can help

Thanks in advance

just updating this because i had a freak incident earlier. I had a powercut about 1 hour ago and when i switched my pc back on after it my cpu usage was back to normal? this surely must point to a hardware fault with my cpu?
