100% CPU usage; looking through FAQ don't see a solution


Recommended Posts


I'm a bit new to all this and not that computer savvy, but I'm having problems with CPU usage that I've never had before. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Here's the text file from Process Explorer:

a) get HijackThis from trendsecure.com, run it, view the log, and post the contents here

B) get Process Explorer from sysinternals.com, run it, Ctrl+D (to show the lower DLL pane), select the µTorrent process from the list, Ctrl+S (and save the list somewhere you'll find easily -- like the Desktop), then post the contents of the saved process list in the .txt file here
