Hello PC Pitstop, I recently ran into an issue after installing PowerISO that is as follows. Whenever I use a web browser (IE or Mozilla) my CPU usage is low for a little while then it jumps to about 50 to 90% and goes up and down for minutes in that range. What the heck is going? Trying to watch a movie online becomes a pain due to freezing of a frame and I do have a quick internet connection. I do not have a previous restore point and I scanned in safe mode with malware bytes, registry cleaner and avast antivirus and found nothing that fixed the problem. Help would be much appreciated.

have you tried using process explorer

it can help locate what causing so much cpu usage

 

>>>>>>PROCESS EXPLORER<<<<<<

 

download the program and save to desktop

open it and run it

 

Pass the cursor over performance graph see whats using so much cpu usage

or go threads...right click on the process using lots of cpu..click on threads...properties

and observe... find out if its something that you may have installed

you could leave process explorer open

and as soon as your cpu starts getting high

right click on the csrss.exe

or the process with the highest number

then click on the properties

choose the threads tab

you should see the high numbers in the CswitchDelta column

you could post the thread name it can be looked up

to see if its a critical thread
