    Strange Resource Problem virus

    **Solved**

    Once I restarted the computer the problem went away. That was strange, but the posts below were very useful.

    **Solved**

    Hi Everyone,
    I seem to have got some kind of virus. I did recently install a package of updates, but I have no idea if this is the problem. I have attached a picture that explains the whole problem. My computer freezes a 5 seconds for about 2 seconds. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
    In my active processes list, nothing jumps out at me.

    Thanks

    Run
    Code:
    top
    in the terminal and see if you find out what process is causing it.
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    Thanks Frogs Hair,
    That is a very useful command that I didn't know about. It seems that a command called 'events/l' is eating up all the processor. It is funny because this process does not show up on the Gnome-system-monitor process list.
    I did a google search and didn't find anything distinctive. Does anyone know about this, or how I can try to kill this?

    Thanks a lot.

    Piccy thanks for the help. I will turn to this bug report for more help in the future. It looks like this is the same bug that I have, although i am not using the same kind of wireless card mentioned in the bug report. Since restarting my computer it seems to have gone away though. Now the 2 cores of my CPU are alternating from 3% to 20%, which is much better. And this event/1 does not show up in the top report.
