    Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service high CPU usage


    Sppsvc.exe, uses too much cpu 50-74% after installing updates around 7 months ago. This happens in very frequent bursts that will last for about 20mins and will severely slow down my pc, often even causing other apps to freeze. I have tried everything by reading your latest post. Now am trying to disable the SvcRestartTask command but there are two other processes:

    SvcRestartTasklogon and

    SvcRestartTasknetwork.

    Shoud i disable them or delete them.

    Alsoany planned future updates by that will address this issue?

    :)

  2. Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service high cpu usage

    In Windows 10, Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service is using more than 30% of my cpu. I tried the things listed here:

    How to Fix High CPU Usage by Sppsvc.exe on Windows 10?

    The first 2 don't work and when I disable it with the 3rd method the cpu usage problem goes away, but a message is displayed in the corner of my screen in gray text saying "Activate Windows Go to Settings to activate Windows" that displays on top of everything else and never goes away. Is there anything I can do other than reinstalling Windows?

    Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service

    I just finished a complete virus can using Windows Defender.

    I started the complete scan because Microsoft Software Protection Platform was already running high (I am averaging 40% or higher).

    Since Microsoft Software Protection Platform was already taking up such a chunk (and its Antimalware Service Executable is taking another 30% to 40%), it took Windows Defender 2 full days to complete. During this time, my PC was next to useless.

    Windows Defender completed about 4 hours ago, and both Microsoft Software Protection Platform and it's buddy Antimalware Service Executable are still each taking 30% to 40% of the CPU usage.

    What is going on? Should this eventually stop or do I need to look into ways to stop these processes from crippling my system?
