in Guys.
Accidentally pressed the off button on laptop.
When I restarted all 4 CPUs at 100% and core temps running between 80 - 90
Looks like SV host using 98-99%
Apart from The higher temp it still seems to be running normally
Any ideas welcome

Did it shut down or hibernate? Try restarting to be fully sure.

It shut down completely. have restarted x 3.
Checked on net and downloaded MS Process Explorer. Shows systems/processes using SVHost and wouldn't you know it the one that is using 100% is listed but doesn't identify the culprit.

Hovering the mouse over the entry in Process Explorer showing 98% shows it is C:Users\Colin\App Dat5a\Roaming\Adobe32\SVHost.exe(Then a lot of switches and jumble)
Knowing it was pointing to Photoshop, I killed it and everything returned to normal. Great I thought so I restarted and it was back again.
Will look and see where it is starting.

:bananaOK panic over.
Checked Startup with CCleaner and found three different Adobe updaters running so disabled all three and restarted and bingo all normal:clap
