I cant get my CPU Usage to chill out. It keep flatlining at 100% and wont drop. I have tried scanning the system for mal-ware, sky-ware and regiistry errors and cant figure it out. The only thing that seems to work is if i stop the indexing function. I cant believe that it is just indexing that is messing my system up. Any ideas?

The file VMHOST.EXE is identified as the Trojan Program that is used for stealing bank information and users passwords. DO NOT PUT ANY PERSONAL INFO IN ANYWHERE. Run virus scans or take to a professional
The high CPU useage could also be the virus scanning program running and if your hard disk has a lot of files, data etc. it would take a lone time to complete. Removing unwanted files and programs will make the virus scanning complete its task quicker.
You should also carry out hard disk maintenance at least onec a month Ie Disk Cleanup and Defrag to remove temporary unwanted files and Defrag will make your files contiguous so the hard disk does not need to work as hard and efficient.
There are many things that
might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a
fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU
and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or
To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task
Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL
and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the
Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of
memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and
sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the
resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google
the name and you should find what the process is for.
If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different
issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan
your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is
100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus
scanners that you can run to check your PC:
It sounds like there could be a virus on your computer that is using up all of your CPU resources. Try to monitor the processes and CPU usage, buy pushing Ctrl + Alt + Del at the same time. This will open up the Task Manager on XP, or show you a menu screen on Windows Vista and 7, and you can click on start task manager at the bottom. View all your processes and how much cpu usage is being taken up from those processes. Look for the process using the highest cpu usage when it spikes to 100% and please repost the process name!
In the mean time might I suggest running and anti-virus scan, scanning for malware, and spyware as well. If you do not have any of these programs, I would suggest using either AVG, or Avira Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes, and Super Anti-Spyware, all of which are free programs that can be downloaded here!

If your fan is running OK, then it probably doesn't need cleaning.
I have a satellite A350 and it pumps out a LOT of heat but that doesn't mean it's overheating. It's more likely your CPU usage is very high, which makes it very hot.
Turn on the CPU Meter in the Windows sidebar and close all applications. Watch the CPU usage (the larger front meter) for about 20-30 seconds. If the AVERAGE level when running no other applications is over 40% or spiking up at 90 or 100% then you are probably running too much junk in the background, or you have a virus.
Try to monitor the CPU usage before opening CROME. If it is normal before opening it then there is some process under CROME which takes you CPU usage report to GOOGLE on this. and remove it through Add/Remove programmes under control panel.
Try to use Firefox instead of CROME.
If it happens again then there is some thing wrong with OS( most probabaly Spyware or trozen).
