Title says it all pretty much. I'll be on discord and watching a youtube video and then all of a sudden my video will stop and discord will no longer work. I'll have enough time to ctrl shift esc to open task manager and I can see that my cpu is at 99% but nothing is using it. My computer then freezes and my screens go black as if they were just unplugged. If I wait they'll turn back on, but I can't do anything on my computer. I think it might be a virus. I thought it could be a temp issue so I cleaned my thermal paste off my cpu and put new stuff on and it's still doing it. Any and all help is appreciated.
