With the high CPU usage, the computer becomes very slow and you may even face computer freeze problem. What is the real cause and how to troubleshoot this problem?

CPU 100%

Why my CPU usage keep 100%?
There are many causes of CPU high usafe issue making it is impossible to explain them here. However, we can pay attention to the main causes.

If you find the explorer.exe process CPU is abnormal. It may be the result of a corrupt or incomplete file. I have found it is actually a problem that an AVI file is damaged causing explorer.exe use all your CPU. Explorer will read the damaged file frame by frame to determine it’s properties.

If we are to talk an average of what causes these errors. Here are some facts
50% are virus related

Symptoms:

  •  Iexplore.exe is using the most of your CPU
  •  You find some processes in task manager which has a strange name sounds like a malware. As a malicious process, it also shares the memory space.
  •  Looking at task manager you see that the computer is experiencing high CPU usage. Looking more closely you see that something called “svchost” is taking 100% of the CPU time.
