Hey guys,

So I posted this thread on the gaming section as well. One of the moderators advised me to post it here as well. Basically, I've a Dell Latitude E6400 with windows 7 enterprise and 64bit. It is 2.5ghz, core 2 duo and 4gb of ram. I've 78 of 150gb available. Anyhow, my problem is that my computer is spiking to 100% all of a sudden, even when I've only a chrome tab open. I noticed that it happens mostly when I'm watching a video, especially on Netflix. And even games such as Madden 08 that I used to play without any issues earlier are lagging now and becoming impossible to play. The reason I'm posting it here as well is because a month ago, my cousin downloaded a game torrent and other stuff and he got the babylon search engine on my computer. I was able to get rid of it but I feel like there might be some more of it left somewhere that is not being picked up by malwarebytes anti-malware. So, in short I don't know what to do anymore and would really appreciate any kind of help. Btw I grabbed a screenshot of my taskmanager. I was running couple of chrome tabs, word doc and task manager when it spiked to 100% again. I was watching a live video on one of the tabs btw. I grabbed a screenshot of the task manager. Lemme know if you guys need anything else as well.

Thank you guys for any help or advise
