Cpu 100%?

  1. Actually I suspect they came from financial sites; I get a huge amount of associated spam as well.

    I'm much more careful about what links I click these days....but the spam continues.

    cbg.exe seems to be the problem.

    Can you locate the file and tell us the folder path name of where it is located.

    I don't have it on my system.

    Hopefully, by the path name we could determine whether it's good and evil.

  3. Hi,

    I just read the first post of this thread and have no time to read all the other posts, maybe some have already mentioned it, but from what you've said I beleive you have a virus on your system if cpu is at 100% and you cannot determine a geniune application is using it.

    I also saw couple of lines of Norton/Mcfee breezing through the posts. I recommend niether. they're not great and slow your computer down.

    I highly recommend Nod32. I use it, and it's the best anti-virus there is in my view. it is extremely small and does not slow your computer at all. I'ved used others and in my view it is the best.

    found CBG.exe and that is not the problem. That's just the program i used for the snapshot. Thanks for looking it up.

  5. I just checked the 2 snapshots uve put up in the previous post. I don't see any problem there. all processes are normal and i don't see the cpu running at 100%.

    u still have a problem?

    Hi Batman,
    Yes, it just spiked at 100%. But I think you still might be right. MY charting software gets most of the CPU resource.

  7. if it only spikes to 100%, then that is perfectly normal. if it remains above 80% consistantly to the point that it freezes your computer (esp. when charting software is off) then you certainly have a virus. but I can't see anything suspecious in ur processes.

  9. You could have a trial with an anti root kit tool:


    Do not trust completely on Spybot or Ad-aware....

    Thanks Bernard.

    Also I am thinking about upgrading some memory, basically going to the max allowed for my system.

    Any brand or type in particular?

    Thanks to all for the inputs.
