Cpu usage is going up and down constantely from like 5 hours ago so my PC laggs a lot. I did a scan with MalwareBytes and 390 malwares were found but it didn't fix the problem. I also did a scan with my antivirus (Microsoft Security Essentials) and no result. 
Help me please because I never had this problem before and the programs I use aren't the problem because I also used the same programs yesterday and before.

Thank you very much, I changed the IP directly after my post (I was using a VPN) and until now there is no problem so I think that the IP was the problem.
