Please let me know your opinion on this.
When I’m not using my laptop with Windows 10, the CPU activity is at 10-20%. However, exactly after 4 minutes of not using my laptop, the CPU utilisation always jumps to 70-80%. This then drops back to the original 10-20% after I move a mouse, press a key on my keyboard etc. When I don’t do anything, it stays at the 70-80% indefinitely with fans being louder as well etc.
So when I’m using it, everything is fine, but after 4 minutes of inactivity, the virus starts to use my processing power and stops doing so immediately after any input from my side.
What do you guys think? I have tried several antivirus software and none of them detected any issues. It seems to me that someone is using my processing power to mine some crypto probably, however I’m not sure and would like to get rid of it.
