    97% Graphics Card Activity with nothing running


    After about 5 minutes the fan on the R9 270x goes full speed and checking on CCC the card is at 97% activity, yet nothing is running, when I look into Processes I find the program 'Chrome.exe (32bit)' is running, clicking on End Task cause the activity on the card to stop, but I do not have Chrome installed, and running my malware and anti virus programs come up with a clean system. can anyone help me?

    Did you ever have Chrome installed or attempted but stopped it's installation ? It may have sneaked by with another downloaded program. Check in All apps in the Start, there is an Metro version of it.

    Thanks for the reply, and to answer your question, no have not installed Chrome, only use Firefox, but I think i might have solved it, a dodgy Googleupdate.exe file, have deleted it, now waiting to see if anything happens.

    Ugh, that could be too, I always uninstall it if it shows up.
