    Software Protection Platform Service Sppsvc.exe causing High CPU usage


  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 high CPU usage

    Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service, Sppsvc.exe, uses too much cpu, often going up to above 50-55%. 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 windows10, no kms, no pirate program versions-activators.

    I have already tried EVERYTHING:

    -Checked that my system is fully updated

    -Scanned for malware using 4 different programs

    -Used system maintenance troubleshooter

    -Run a clean boot & high cpu problem still persisted.

    -run a system file checker.

    -and, as a last resort, I reset my system choosing to remove all my files and apps, and sppsvc still used the same cpu before i added any of my previous files or programs.

    I have resorted to disabling sppsvc using the registry editor and scheduled tasks so that I can work. (I have 'go to settings to activate windows' watermark on my desktop)

    I should not have to do this to be able to work, and, since I have tried all of the above, I cannot think of anything else it might be appart from a glitch in the sppsvc program released by ms itself.

    Any suggestions? Or any planned future updates by ms that will address this issue please?
