|I keep getting this weird CPU spike from services.exe. Usually it's about 15-20% CPU, but it can sometimes get as high as 100%. I know that services will spike when you open a program.|
I have Avira Anti-Vir, and it came up with some trojans, but removed all of them. I've gone through Add and Remove programs to see if anything is awry. Alas, no.
I've looked through all of my processes with security task manager and googled all of them. Nothing appeared to be a virus/trojan/worm.
I'm starting to think that it's some updater running in the background.
I also downloaded some updates from Microsoft right before this started happening, including;
Security Hotfixes for the Office '07 Suite
Root Certificate Updates
Brother Printer Driver (Failed Install)
nVidia Display Driver Updates
I have since tried reinstalling my original nVidia drivers, but nothing has worked.
I originally thought it was the nVidia update that caused this, because my extended desktop monitor started flashing off quickly whenever the CPU is under stress.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
