Hi jay2511,

Your HJT log doesn't show any indications that malicious programs are the cause of your problem.

Since you've already determined that something is spiking your CPU usage, I'm assuming that you've discovered that through Task Manager. You can sort your running processes in the Task Manager by their CPU usage just by clicking on that heading; what are the the most CPU-intensive processes listed there?

Thank you for the REPLY DMR..

And to answer the above question. It seems to be working okay right now.. its been two days that it was high at 100%, and my comp was very slow.. right now the most intensive CPU process is the most common one, System Idle process. at 87% -90%..

Once again thank you so much for looking at my log, and at least isolating the fact that I have no malicious programs..

If the "problem" reoccurs, you may just have some valid program or process running which needs to take priority over other processes every once in a while. Anti-virus programs and other programs with "auto-update" features can cause the sort of behaviour you're seeing.
