  1. My PC Gets High CPU Load When Idling


    Sometimes when I use my PC, a process called "Microsoft Register Server" eats 30-40% of my CPU usage. I can hear the CPU fan's speed rise, and when I hear specific noise. Sometimes I caught my computer with high CPU load while idling. The time I shake my mouse, I can hear the fan slows down immediately. And by the time I accessed Task Manager, I spotted Microsoft Register Server only left with high CPU usage. I don't know what process takes my CPU usage in idle, but I'm sure Microsoft Register Server is one of them.

    This is pretty depressing to me because I feel my computer is sneaky doing something I don't know. Is it Microsoft's telemetry? Or Malicious programs? I really don't know. I detected the Register Server problem few days ago, but I'm sure this is not the first time I find suspicious CPU activities by suspicious processes.

    So, what seems to be the problem? I haven't done any modding in a while, and recent programs I installed are TeamSpeak Client, Overwolf, and Logitech Gaming Software.

    Early thanks for everyone, I might not respond quick. Thanks!

    My Brand New Laptop is running hot on windows 10

    I monitor my temps constantly. Win10 is running several degrees warming than Win 8 doing the same task (work PC). Nothing major, but definitely warmer. Win8 was low / mid 40s, Win10 is high 40s to low 50s. Even when CPU usage is low the temp is high.
    Might be an issue with temp being reported wrong.

    Should not be at 50c when CPU is idle, doesn't make sense.

  6. [UPDATE}
    Problem solved. I managed to uninstall Logitech Gaming Software, and disabled some suspicious tasks in Task Scheduler. I haven't seen any high CPU activities by Windows Register Server anymore. Sadly, I didn't try the solution @dalchina pointed. I straight removed Logitech Gaming Software and disabled scheduled tasks.
