    High CPU and memory usage on Windows 10 with Microsoft Edge.

    Wow, this reply really nailed it. For both Edge and Firefox, I monitored the CPU usage and picked a process with high CPU usage. I killed 1 process per app and the CPU went down to under an average of 10%.

    One connection was Fox News (Firefox), but can't see which one was stopped in Edge.

    Great suggestion!

    VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

    Hey there Kristian, first I'd suggest using your task manager and seeing if Windows antimalware executable is going on, because it can spike high cpu usage rates. Afterwords, i'd like for you to do a scan with your windows defender, as it may be malware
    infecting your computer.
