    CPU usage cut in half?

    Okay, so yesterday i was downloading some.... malicious programs and consequently i got a small virus. The virus was simple enough to fix, i just ran a scan with Avira AntiVir and restarted my computer, deleted the files from quarantine.... etc. When i turned on my computer this morning how ever, the CPU usage never goes below 52% even with no programs running. Below are two screen shots of every process running on my computer, and the CPU meter on the side. I highlighted the two biggest processes. For comparison my computer can run at about 15% CPU usage with Chrome and Itunes open. (I have 4gb of ram.)
    Thanks in advance for your time guys.

    Re: CPU usage cut in half?

    Thanks, Xeri but thats not really the problem. Those programs always run and the amount of memory they take up would not equal to 50% of my overall CPU. I looked more into this and im guessing its either a physical issue like with the fan or mother board or something. Or it is an internal issue like the computer calculating the amount of usage wrong.
