    Hello!

    My CPU usage is rising up to 80-100% and i can't play. i have formated my computer for 2 times now and don't know what's causing this. When CPU usage goes up to 80% i'm not able to play games anymore because of the lagg i got.

    i haven't had this problem before but this started yesterday... i don't know what to do.

    I have cleaned my computer with CCleaner, Avast and anti-malware.
    i haven't had this problem before, this started yesterday.

    EDIT; sry for bad spelling, my motherlanguage is not english :)

    In Task Manager,click View > Select columns > PID
    svchost.exe seems high.
    Run SvcHostViewer and find out what the PID is doing.

    As an aside, those power temps look high for the CPU.

    Thanks, I'm going to check heatsink & fan tomorrow and also run SvcHostViewer. I played today lots of games and only got "High CPU usage" spikes couple of times (There were less spikes by night. Now i haven't had any in 6 recently hours).

    I was really suprised that my computer kind of fixed itself.
    Power temps are high only during spikes :/
