    High CPU usage until I open the task manager.


    hi,


    I recently noticed my laptop(an HP envy) getting very hot even when I have nothing open and whenever I open task manager I see the CPU usage at 80% and then it quickly goes down to around 5-10%.
    I have done a scan with Windows defender and malware bytes and found nothing.

    :)

  2. Task Manager High CPU Usage

    I have the same problem myself with it only happens when I scroll through task manager and open and close it. I don't know this for sure but the reason this probably happens is that you may have a lot of processes running and task manager is using a lot
    of the CPU to process the usage of each program.

    What I have done is disable data that I don't need to see like network usage and GPU usage and it drops the CPU usage a bit. I have also enabled everything and scrolled up and down on it and task manager uses almost twice as much.

    I would suggest disabling everything but CPU, disk, and RAM, (I would not suggest having GPU on because it is almost always at 99% unless you have FPS limits).

    Cpu usage high until i open task manager

    Hello!

    my problem still persist after doing what you said.

    I've run every update available and run the commands you wrote in the post but still the CPU usage is very high until I open the task manager, then it reduces the CPU usage to normal values around 2-5% iddle.

    Thanks in advance.
