50% cpu usage

I just noticed that the ATI client is using 50% of my cpu for some reason. Is there any known reason to why, or what is making it do that?

Additional Comment:

I may have had a virus or something, i restarted my computer and a virus warning came up, so I deleted the core it was working on and it picked up a new one and seems to be running fine...

I am running a virus scan now to see but is there anything else that could have caused it?

The virus is a known false positive, but checkings smart.

Yes ATI uses alot of cpu, you can use enviromental variables to drop that to bout 10% thogh.
