satelliteuser083 Posted April 9, 2008 Report Share Posted April 9, 2008 (edited) I've just spent the last 10 minutes watching the CPU-history graph (Gnome System-monitor), on my Tosh Sat Pro 4600 box running mva 2006. Interestingly :unsure: , the CPU load is around 90% for about 45 seconds every minute. Only firefox, kwrite and system-monitor are running, the LAN is down (cable even removed) and, according to my understanding of computers/OS's, the machine should be just idling along at about 5-10%. If this were Windoze I'd be panicking and reaching for the AV, but that, according to this post https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtop...p;hl=anti-virus, is unnecessary in a linux setup. Am I becoming paranoid, or somthing? How likely is it that I've got some 'uninvited friend' ;) running about in the box? If anyone could provide to this simple soul an explanation of what's going on (which might also reduce my state of concern), that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
