My computer has a TON of random programs running in the task manager. It is not connected to the internet right now because its not working. avg healed a bunch of viruses and norton wont install..... the programs look like ewsdjk67g3.exe
Your excess CPU usage is due to too many programs running in the background. You can cut these to barebones by alter your msconfig. Here is how:
1. Open your Start menu. 2. Click Run 3. In the command screen type "msconfig.exe" 4. In the "system configuration utility",click either "service" or "startup" tab 5. Uncheck all programs that your are no longer using. 6. Click "OK"
