Default Be Careful What You Download

I don't even know when it was downloaded ,but it was called Babylon-toolbar.I am pretty careful when I download stuff ,but it was hidden in something that I downloaded.They had it looking like google toolbar ,so I really did'nt notice untill my mouse started jerking and then I got a warning that my temperture was running high.I look at coretemp and the first and secound showed 84c and the other two showed 78c.I did'nt know what was happing,first I thought my fan when out ,but it was fine.Then I thought my cpu might be going bad or my motherboard since it was in a house that burned.I looked at my process in task manger and nothing look like it should draw much power to heat all my cores.I went to google to hunt something up and I notice in the adress bar it was not google.come ,but something call Babylontollbarss.comI knew that was'nt right so I went to uninstall it ,but it would'nt uninstall.So I went to google and found a Special Uninstaller which uninstall part of it and the rest to uninstall the redit was going to cost nearly $30.I used my norton registry cleaner and it got evething but the main problem,but it now would show in my Task manger issx.explorer at 99,so I deleted that and everthing went back to normal,my temps are back to 38c,38c to 36c,36c.A long story short be careful what you download ,it may look harmless but have very hidden dangous stuff inside it.

what kind of crappy heat sink do you own that could possibly let the cpu temp more then double?

His sig shows an i7 paired with a TRUE.... Even without a fan 80C seems too high. Might also want to look at reseating your HSF.

Maybe it needs to have the dust blown out? lol I've seen my temps drop like 10C after cleaning, and I don't even let it get that bad.

Plus it's a Nehalem, which are HOT. When I'm running at 4GHz+ I have to run with HT off in order to keep my cores below 80C with Prime95, and that's with a cooler on par with the best, the Noctua cooler, although it does take a some time for the heat to build up that high, which can eventually raise my room temp 10F, contributing to the problem. He might have been running at 100% for hours and not known it.

This was something that got downloaded and was makeing all core run at a 100% and the temps was cazy ,but I don't think it was actually that hot because I could touch around the cpu and it did'nt fill that warm.I been running at 4.2gigs since day one almost three years. Plus I have a very good Heatsink and fan .plus I have artic silver 5 .Once I got the crap uninstall it went back to normal.even when I run prime95 at the hardest setting the highest the cores get is around 80c to82c.
