  1. Cortana Uses 30% CPU


    How do I stop Cortana from using so much CPU? It's causing problems with games and videos. The only clue I've found is that if I end the Cortana task in Task Manager, Cortana restarts and subsequently suspends itself.

  2. CPU Usage Stuck at 30%

    I'm sorry but there are no background process using 30% of cpu. The highest one is Microsoft Software Protection Platform, using 7% of cpu. The other one is Explorer, using 3% of cpu.

    Should i disable it?

    That is 10%. So there is another 20% being used somewhere and it must show in details tab using more details on bottom to show all processes. It has been this way from day one of Windows OS's. Or maybe there is malware or a virus. But it still should show
    CPU usage and items combined will equal the total CPU usage.
