CPU Usage Surges
For some reason, my CPU usage has been inexplicably surging - slowing down everything on my comp for about a second. This is extremely irritating. My CPU usage will be at 2 or 3 percent, then suddenly surge to to 50, 75, or even 100 percent. I have no idea why this has been happening, and it only started recently, as in within the last 2 months. When this happens, my pointer will adapt the hourglass symbol next to it for a second. this will slow everything down for about a second. so if i am playing a game, it stutters.
Any ideas on what could be causing this? And if so, how to fix it?
