CPU usage jumps to 100% under very light load

Question asked by curtiswaters on Sep 22, 2015

My CPU usage randomly jumps to 100% under light load  (a few tabs on Chrome or MS Office) and my computer freezes completely.
I am certain I have no malware or viruses. My RAM usage remains normal and so does my GPU usage.
Could my CPU be faulty?
