Windows 7: Cores shooting up to 100% as soon as I turn on the PC

Cores shooting up to 100% as soon as I turn on the PC

Hello there. First time posting here.

I turned on my PC and I saw this.
Now I have a good cooler and I'm not scared but the temperature keeps going up with 1-2* celsius every 20 minutes.

I tried ending procceses that I don't need. It didn't help.
Any idea what I could do ?

CPU : i7 2600k 3,5mhz
GPU : nvidia GTX 580
MOBO : Asrock P67PRO3

If you need anything else just tell me. Please help I've been going through a thread here but that didn't help me out.

One thing I forgot to mention.
I just restarted my computer and when I pressed Shut Down I got a BSOD 0x0000000f4.

I fixed it. Didn't really need your help I posted because I was desperate.

For the people that google this right now.


Windows Task Manager>Performance>Resource Monitor>CPU>Sort by Average CPU
For me it was a minerd.exe I don't know what that is but just end process tree on the thing taking up 90+ of your cpu.

CPU usage keeps shooting up to 100% for no reason?
My PC has the habit of randomly and suddenly using up CPU to 100% for no apparent reason. My computer slows down to a crawl and I can't even shut down as it stays on the "shutting down..." screen. There's no rhyme or reason to it, though it never happens if I don't have the pc on for at least an...
