My gpu would reach 90% usage while idle out of nowhere. It took me 5 hours to find the source. Turned out it was Jusched.exe. it came up with bitcoinminer. Malwawarebytes detected it as such. I deleted it and after that i had no problem
WARNING! Very often bitcoin mining malware is masked as jusched. If you see the process use a lot of CPU/GPU or if killing the process suddenly reduces the load on GPU - you got infected.
Slowing PC down. Disabling nearly impossible.
This process is part of the java automated update system and checks for updates to the java runtime environment, disabling this process may cause you to miss important security patches making you computer vulnerable or at the least, causing you to miss the addition of new features to java meaning some java software may not function on your computer. It can be disabled without harming your computer and is not harmful while running.
I did a narrowing down of programs using MSconfig, and found this file was the source of my woes! somehow when it is checked as a startup item, my internet WILL NOT load, with it disabled, my internet runs like it always had (around 100Kbp/s not bad but not extreme) all I can say is that I will not trust it! it is not worth loosing internet! and who knows what else it will do!!! I will like the process I used to find that this was the problem.

I cant disable it on Win7 HP. Always I do - Apply, but the checkbox is allways checked after opening the same update panel.

Computer was running so slow, 2 mins to start up internet. The second I ended this process it worked perfectly.

If the file is listed %appdata% folder, then its probably a virus. It should stand in C:\Windows or in C:\Windows\System32

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with jusched.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
