I'm running Linux Mint Isadora on an eMachines computer with an AMD chip.
Fairly often lately, I've noticed the CPU usage rise to 90% and hover around there, like it's been doing right now.
This happens when there really isn't much happening on my computer to warrant this. After boot up, the CPU usage drops pretty low.
Does anybody know what could be causing it?
BTW, I'm running the 32 bit version of Mint Isadora. I don't have much memory 2 gigs, I think.
I did do a torrent download a while back- could they still be using my computer's CPU?
Or could it be a rootkit? However, I did run a rootkit detector not too long ago and the results were negative.
Or is it some bug in Isadora?
