I have a R9 270x and i'm using windows 7 64 bit .

Recently i started to notice that after playing a game or any other graphically demanding program, My GPU usage will not go down after closing that program and will stay at about 90%-99%, even after a couple of hours

Only after restarting the computer the usage will go back to 0% when idle.

I ran a scan using malwarebytes and found nothing, and it looks like there is no process that is using the GPU.

I noticed it after i updated catalyst to 14.4 but i went back to 13.12 and it hadn't solved the problem.

Any idea what can cause this issue? Here is a couple of screenshots of the problem:

Thanks in advance.
