I have an older computer (intel E6700;8gb ram, Windows 7-64). It's usually not doing anything, but it's on and connected to the network. I received a windows message that I was running low on memory and then I noticed that cpu use was 100%. I did a restart and got a prompt that the page file size had been changed. Now, if I run the machine with nothing being done, the cpu use does not go to a low value and line out; it's constantly oscillating between 0 and 10%.
I am seeking help in identifying which processes or services are causing this behavior and/or which hardware, if any may be at fault. I did a full virus scan and there was nothing.
Thanks for any assistance.
