    High CPU usage


    Hello guys, so, my computer has been lagging A LOT lately and i finally found out the issue, atleast i think i did, my guess is, it's with the CPU, because whenever lag spikes happend the CPU usage escalates to 100%, when normally it's 20%, some good things to point out are;
    1- I never execute more than 3 programs at once
    2- I already tried EVERY thing you can possibly imagine (hard reset, windows defender offline scanner, defragmentation, merging partitions C: and DHigh CPU usage :) and I really don't know what to do anymore, i really just want my PC back.

    PS: this lagging issue started happening after another issue this computer had, where it was turning on and off constantly.

    :)

  2. high cpu usage

    After downloading windows 10, anytime I run any programs, I get high CPU usage. It does not matter whether it is google chrome, task manager, playing games, whatever. Anything seems to spike the CPU usage. I have already run malwarbytes and my antivirus
    programs and find no viruses. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi Andrew,

    Usually, too many background processes can boost your CPU usage. Since you already disabled the apps that are not necessary on startup,
    we suggest checking the applications running once you have successfully boot Windows 10. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Click on the Start button and type Task Manager on the search box.
    • On the Task Manager window, you should see the programs running.
    • Click on the More details drop-down button to see the total number of apps running and their real-time CPU usage.

    From there, you should see what applications are running on high CPU usage. You can also
    restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service and see if your CPU performance will improve. Follow the instructions below to restart the service:

    • Click on the Start button and type Services.
    • Scroll down the list and look for Windows Management Instrumentation.
    • Right click on it and select Restart.

    Should you have further questions, please let us know.

    Windows Explorer high CPU Usage in Windows 10

    To further troubleshoot the issue, we suggest checking the Task Manager again to see what are the
    applications that have high CPU usage. To do this, follow the same steps you did from the previous reply:

    • Click on the Start button and type Task Manager on the search box.
    • On the Task Manager window, you should see the programs running.
    • Click on the More details drop-down button to see the total number of apps running and their real-time CPU usage.

    However, based on your response above, it seems that you may need to create a new user account again and just install your apps manually instead of copying them as your
    previous user account might be corrupted.

    Once your done with the steps, please let us know how it goes.
