Windows 7: Network Traffic Causing Huge Spikes in CPU

Network Traffic Causing Huge Spikes in CPU

Hello. For the last week or so, my network traffic has seemed to be related to some pretty sever spikes in my CPU usage. These spikes are causing extreme stuttering in my music playback, freezing of my cursor, and other symptoms of a really laggy computer. This pretty much occurs whenever I use the internet in any way. The worst spikes are when I'm loading webpages in Google Chrome and seeding on uTorrent, often freezing my cursor and music for several seconds at a time, though they're not limited to those two softwares. Prior to this last week, I've never had this problem. My CPU usage never caused any stuttering or lag beyond just slow-running software, but now it's becoming a real issue to use my computer. If anyone has any ideas on what I can do to troubleshoot this or solve this problem, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!

sounds like your browser might be corrupted you ever try a different browser before or let me ask how long you been using that particular one you speak of and how many time have you updated all the drivers?

Also i might add using bit torrent sites are viruses waiting to happen just my opinion

Well I've been using Chrome for several months with absolutely no problems, but I'm getting the issue with IE and Firefox as well. My driver's I have checked and they are all up to date. As for the viruses, I use a private tracker for bittorrenting. It's no guarantee that I don't have any trojans or anything, but I have beening running SpyBot S&D and AVG 9, and neither seem to be picking anything up.

have you ever tryed spysweeper with anti virus ? I know avg is well known but i actually been using this one for four years now and it has been great also maybe if you get rid of all the browser then reinstall IE8 and see what happens

I would take out some of the browsers and break it down they could be conflicting each other i might be wrong but i would uninstall each one and test

The problem seems to have subsided, though I can't really pinpoint why. A combination of actions, including updating and rerunning SpyBot S&D, running CCleaner, closing uTorrent, and changing a few settings here and there seems to have fixed the issue for now. Too bad I didn't troubleshoot it correctly...

Thank you for your suggestions!
