This How-to Tutorial will show you how to find and end a program that is eating away at your computer resources and causing your computer to run slowly or possibly even overheat. In my particular situation I had a process called vmnat.exe which is from a program called VMware. VMware allows you to run virtual computers on your computer. I use this utility to download programs on a virtual pc that I'm not sure of, that way, my main computer will not get the virus, but my virtual computer can.

1. So I opened up task manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL) and select task manager or you right click on the task bar and select task manager.
2. I opened up my motherboard CPU temperature and CPU fan speed utility, so that I could monitor my CPU temps as I kill process, trying to identify the rogue process that is hogging all the resources on my Windows 7 computer. You can download a free program called Speccy from CNET, it allows you to monitor your CPU temps and fan speeds as well.
3. I proceeded to kill processes (end processes) in task manager, as I monitored my CPU temperature. Once I killed the rogue process on my computer, my CPU temp dropped from 50 degrees Celsius to 38 degrees Celsius, which let me know that I found the right one.

I will be making another video showing you how to fix your VMware setup on your Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine, to prevent vmnat.exe from overheating or overloading your CPU. Stay tuned and subscribe to my channel, so that you can be notified when I post it.
