Preferred Solution: Something constantly running on my computer

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel i7-2630 QM, 6 GB RAM and AMD Radeon 6770M GPU (along with Intel Graphics Card). In the past few days, anytime I open a program, such as Mozilla, Chrome, Spotify, the computer's fans kick on. This has never happened in the past. Usually I have to run a video through the browser or play a game for the fans to turn on. The fan turns on when on AC power and when on battery. When this happens, the CPU usage is around 5-7% with 40-50% RAM usage (no change from the past). I am not sure why all of the sudden the laptop's fans are turning on. I have looked at the processes and do not see anything out of the norm and the average temp of the CPU's is about 51-54 C. I have not installed any new software in the past several months. Any input or ideas about why this may be happening would be greatly appreciated. I use Process Explorer and Core Temp to monitor my computer as well as Norton 360 as antivirus software. Thanks.

My computer has been BSODing for about a week now, I was getting IRQL_not_less_or_equal, and occasionally a page exceeder error or that, the main problem is that my computer has been running on normal mode now, but is very slow, and takes ages to respond, I have 4gb of RAM and it's never been this slow, also youtube videos are very slow, and freeze for like 3 seconds at a time then catch up, and I can't run games well, indicating a video driver issue maybe?

i dont know what is going on with my computer lately. it now freezes at basically every single action i do. if i want to switch to another page, it freezes. if i want to click on something within a page, it freezes. when i use my powerdirector editor, it freezes really bad. furthermore, when the editor is on, the rest of the computer is worthless. so if i am producing a video, i have to wait until it is processed before i can do anything else. i have had the computer for a year and all this has just happened in the past couple of weeks. it is really slowing me down.

Hello all,

This is my last resort to figure out why Bert (my computer) is dieing on me.

He is a 1 year old computer with Windows Vista 64 bit (Instal, not upgrade) Service pack 1, with 4 gb of Ram, a 500gb hard drive, and a 3.0GHz quad-core processor.

Lately, ive had troubles with him though,

It doesn't always start up correctly, and freezes on the Microsoft loading page, with the green loading bar.

When i try to start it in safe mode.. you'll all reconize this next part: It gets stuck on Crcdisk.sys (Yes, that infamous problem)

Ive googled the subject till i was blue in the face, and ive managed to get it to start up again (only 50% of the time) by doing the following:

I try to start up the computer, it freezes on the loading page
I hold the power button for 4 seconds to turn it off
Turn off the power bar
Press Bert's power button to drain any residual power
Turn on the power bar
Turn on Bert, and it starts properly.

So problem 1 is, id like to figure out how to fix the crcdisk.sys problem permanently, and the second problem is arguably worse:

When i do manage to turn it on, the computer is extremely unresponsive. It will freeze doing ANYTHING (Opening folders/files, Opening/closing windows, Opening/closing Firefox, or Internet Explorer, Loading anything in firefox or internet explorer... Basically anything that a computer can do, will freeze it.)

It will freeze, and the window will "Not responding", and sometimes if i wait a good 30 seconds -... Read more

Hello everyone,
 
I am a first time poster who is trying to help my friend with his computer. I believe he has been infected with some sort of malware, spyware, etc.
 
He has Avast Antivirus on his system. When his system boots up and connects to the internet, the realtime shield activity goes crazy. It is constantly scanning even before I even open a browser to access a web page.
 
After the bootup process is complete, I then disconected his internet signal and opened the shield activity in Avast. It indicated that there were already 5,500 items scanned in the webshield and 3,700 in the file shield.
 
He had indicated to me that a few weeks ago, Avast started popping up some blocked messages but his system was still running at a good pace. Application now though have come to a crawl as the scanner runs non-stop. The computer runs fine when you disconnect from the internet.
 
I haven't done anything yet as I didn't want to do anything wrong to screw it up more.
 
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
 
Eric
 
ps - His system is running Windows 7 Home Preimium

Good evening! 
 
I was directed to a suspected unsafe site about a week ago. Since then, I've noticed my computer being busy or loading when in the past it had sat idle (I run windows 7 so I get the busy circle right by my pointer for about 30-45 seconds during the happenings). This happens during all times of operation; web surfing, program running (iTunes, Media Monkey, Microsoft Word), and even sitting idle on the desktop. My "issue" occurs even after a fresh restart or power up. \
 
I'm suspecting I somehow downloaded some type of process that is always running and hogging resources from my system. I could however be paranoid. I want to confirm or dis-confirm my assumptions with some help here. I have posted my recent Hijack This log below. I've used Hijack This! Before, however It's been a year or so and my skills at identifying things are dull. Please, if you would take a look and let me know if I have anything that shouldn't be present in my log file. I greatly appreciate it!

First of all, hello to everyone using this forum!

Here's the thing. A few days ago, I noticed something that my C partition was getting full, so I deleted a few programs and some unecessary files like some pictures etc. Along with the partition clogging I noticed that my computer boots up a lot slower than usual and some programs run slower as well. Another problem: I have a great internet connection, both fast and stable, and yet, since the problems began, connecting to sites has become a lot slower (even though it says my connection is perfect as usual) and I have to reconnect my internet in order to be able to browse for 5-10 minutes. I have scanned my computer using AVG 9.0 and I haven't found anything. I really hope someone could help me fast becouse this is becoming intolerable.

Here's a little example of whats happening with my hard drive: yesterday I cleared it out completely using Disk Cleanup and deleting some items manually. It had 1,66 GB of free space. Today when I started my computer it had 774 MB of free space. Approximately 2-3 minutes later it was on 773, even though I didn't do anything. I deleted the content of the temp folders, and I had 1,20 GB of free space. A few minutes later, it was on 1,17 GB.

Hope to hear from somebody soon, and thank you in advance.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the t...

Hi, recently my computer has been having an increased number of physical dumps and is running at a sluggish pace. I haven't installed any major new programs recently and usually just use the computer for internet and word processing so it should not be too much for it to handle. I currently use AVG, Kerio Personal Firewall, and counterspy as defense against malware/adware. These programs do not seems to be helping so I am hoping that you guys can help me isolate the problem or problems.

My CPU usage is always running at 50-55%, which it wasn't doing a week ago. When I check the "Processes" tab under Task Manager, there isn't any application/browser/programs that are taking up that cpu usage. I also ran a virus check with TrendMicro and it came up with nothing. I'd like to be able to know what is running in the background and stop it. It's making work related programs and browsing more slow.

Here is my Hijackthis log:

My laptop fan is constantly running at high speeds. From the moment I turn it on it is loud , high and doesn't slow down. I took every bit of it apart, cleaned it well and left no dust. The operating system runs smoothly, no lag or drag when online or running files and such. I did a quick scan for malware or viruses and it found nothing suspicious. I bought my Laptop in 2014 so it's not that old and I haven't had any problems with it at all thus far. I'm a bit confused and frustrated because I don't know what the issue is. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I've had my P50 for a couple of weeks now, and the fan is running at full speed pretty much constantly. Even with all applications closed, and virtually zero CPU usage. My P50 is docked in a workstation dock, and connected to an external Dell monitor via the Display Port. Running Win7 Pro, which is fully up to date, as are all the system drivers. I don't think anything is actually running hot, as the air blowing out of each end of the P50 is cold. Even if the machine has been sleeping for 12 hours (not actually shut down), the fans come on full in less than a minute of looking at the desktop, with no other activity. I'm extremely happy with the P50 overall, but this constant fan noise is getting very irritating. This surely has to be a firmware issue, and several other people on this forum have reported similar issues. My old T510 hardly ever made this much noise, and all my older IBM era laptops were silent most of the time. Certainly not what I expected when spending over 2000 on a high spec workstation. Please can someone from Lenovo figure out what's going on ? Ian.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum! Since the machine is more than likely under some kind of warranty I would avoid opening it up to see what the problem is.  If it were me,  I would just return it for replacement or repair.  The fan problem could be an indication of other things that maybe wrong with it.  Best to have it checked over.

A:S41 - Fan constantly running

That is usually caused by the vents that allow air to be drawn over the CPU heat sink being clogged with dust   Once the CPU gets hot, the system will slow down, and eventually just shut down to protect itself from a meltdown.     I would try using a vacuum cleaner hose and a can of computer cleaning air to blow/suck out the dust and see if that helps.     I that still fails, you may have to remove the base cover (see page 34 of the Lenovo S41/U41 Hardware Maintenance Manual) and clean the fan manually.     In rare case the heat sinks fail, or the thermal heatsink compund beween the CPU and the heat sink cracks and fails to transfer heat to the heat sink efficiently, mut most likely you will find the system is full of dust. Lenovo used to have a fan cleaning program in the Lenovo Energy Managment software, but I think it removed it for some reason.    It is supposed to run the fan backwards and forwards at high speed to try to clean the dust, but if it is really plugged, it probably will not work. Good luck. Lenovo S41/U41 S41-35 S41-70 S41-75 U41-70 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_s41-35_s41-70_s41-75_u41-70_hmm_201503.pdf

In Windows Task Manager, under the Performance Tab, my CPU is showing at 100% permanently. I've tried closing down some of the high runner processes but nothing makes any difference.

I've run several cleaners (RegCure, CCleaner etc) but again nothing makes any difference.
My PC is constantly freezing, hanging, sputtering and is becoming unusable.

I also noticed that when I manage to perform a normal shutdown, everything goes normally BUT my screen stays on, and the power button light remains on, but I can hear the drives and fan stopping. I then have to perform a manual powerdown by holding the on/off button for about 8-10 seconds.

My machine is a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 Compaq Presario, 18 month old, O/S is Windows XP Home Edition, with SP 2.
Anyone out there have any ideas?

To get in context, my fan was making a rattling noise so l decided to disassembly my computer and clean it up, so l did it and everything ended up well with the exception that l've broke the CMOS Battery. Nevertheless, l turned on the computer and was already expecting misguided hours but l dont really cared about it. Everything was good, the fans were silent and blowing fresh air.The problem is, yesterday, l've turned on my computer and the fans immediately kicked in at full speed and now its constantly. l've made a thing that fixed the problem sometimes that was getting inside the System Diagnostic (F2 right after the boot), and wait until the fans went normal, l dont know why that solve the problem but it worked, not anymore tho.Could someone help me with this? What should l do? Do a clean reinstall of the OS perhaps? lf there isn't a fix for this, does having the fans at full speed may harm my computer? or is just a noise problem that l will need to take?Thanks

Hello,Pasting in contextual information from another topic ~ OBHere is a little history.March 30th A Windows problem first became evident as the CPU spiked to 100% and on reboot, Windows would not boot up stating it could be a hardware or software problem. At that time I thought it was the motherboard and had it swapped out because the error I had was different but the symtoms were the same prior to the system not booting.April 6th got the laptop back from HP and put in my HD to boot from. It worked for a day and then the CPU spiking issue was found, only this time with no failure to boot.Since that date I have tried to isolate the issue but to no avail. I have tried various restore dates and images, as well as manipulating the data on the master image (delete WoW before issue is active and reinstall it from scratch). None of it has worked.My latest attempt was to restore from my oldest image available [the other night]. It was left restoring and hasn't been tested yet. I am not sure if the "issue" will be visible on it. I tested one last night 3-4 weeks later (Feb 16th date) and it was but apparently never became active for close to 2 months...End of added material. ~ OBThis is in reference to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic219056.html and http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/218815/cpu-runs-at-100-constantly/.I have attached the log files that you requested.

A:CPU running at 100% constantly

Hello All,

I wanted to provide an update to this. I blew away the image last night hoping to restore from the factory settings and get it up and running. That worked for about an hour before the symptoms came back. That normally leads me to think that there is something on my home network that is passing a virus along before I can patch windows, but to add further confusion to this topic, the same situation has occurred on my work laptop. Both are HP NC6400. That is the only similarity. The work laptop is running XP and my home machine Vista. I had both machines rebuilt and the work one without ever stepping into my house exhibited the same issue on a fresh build. Is it possible that there is something resident in the BIOS of these machines, or that a Virus screwed up the CPU's?

Hey, I have the following problem: For some time now, my U41-70 throttles down to 0.48 Ghz with the fan constantly running. This behaviour is likely to something called thermal throttling or BD PRODHOT, where other hardware tells the CPU to throttle down in order to not overheat. The throttling can be circumvented using Throttlestop (or MSR on Ubuntu), but having the fan constantly running is quite unbearable. I already tried a number of things, including updating the BIOS. Unfortunately, in the BIOS there does not seem to be an option to turn of thermal throttling altogether. I also cleaned the fan, and tried to change the fan speed manually. None of these measures had any effect. My interpretation of this is that some heat sensor is broken, because the the sensors I can access rarely show a temperature above 40C. I do not have any warranty any more, so I can not just send the laptop in. If I could make out where the faulty sensor is, I could maybe exchange that part of hardware. Does anybody have an idea what part I should replace, or how else I could solve this?I run my U41-70 on Windows and Ubuntu, with the problem occuring on both. I have a 256GB SSD, an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM.

Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that my notebook PC (DELL Inspiron 700m) hard drive has been running more or less 100% of the time the machine has been powered on. Task Mgr/Processes indicate that "msiexec.exe" is running at 99 and CPU usage is at 98-100%.
At the same time, I have also had several incidents of "about:blank" pages in IE (6.0) opeing themselves automatically. During a 30 minute period last night a total of 8 pages opened (I had 8 IE windows opened automatically).

1) are these two issues related?

2) I have checked that "Windows Installer" in Systems is set to "Manual".

3) I also try to turn off the msiexec.exe in "Processes", but it turns it self on within seconds again.

4) I have run multiple spyware software applications trying to find and delete the cause of the "about:blank" problem, which I think is a browser hijack, but to no use. I've run Webroot's "SpySweeper", SpyCatcher and F-Secure's "BlackLight" and Trend-Micro's online "HouseCall". Each of them found malware, but didn't solve the problem.

5) I am using Microsoft OneCare with Defender as my antivirus and malware protection.

I'm at a loss and unless someone has a solution I don't see any other way but to reformat in order to solve the problem.

we have run our adware
I have run pc pit stop on the computer which said it found trojans. Are all my problems caused by these and can you suggest a product to take them off.
If it is not a trojan that is slowing down the computer what other suggestion do you have for me. I really don't understand what is making the cpu run a 100%
Thank you for your time and help
