    Windows 10 1809 corrupt after clean install causing 100% CPU usage


    Hi Yesterday, I fresh installed Windows 10 1809 that I downloaded shortly before 1903 came out via the Media Creation Tool, however it's already corrupt and causing 100% CPU usage when idle. No programs installed.


    sfc /scannow reported the corruption and couldn't fix the problem. Neither could it be reset. Lot of problems with Widows 10, unlike 7 that was far less problematic.


    Any help appreciated


    Thanks in advance


    Kind regards,


    Mike

    100% disk usage and memory usage

    Hi,

    100% disk usage and memory usage can be caused by a software corruption, running application running on the background and malware or virus infection.

    For us to properly isolate the issue and provide an appropriate resolution, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Did the issue happen after installing the Fall Creators?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Can you send us the screenshot of the Task Manager showing the 100% disk usage and memory usage?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    For isolation purposes, please perform a clean boot to see if the same issue will occur. Refer to this
    article for more information on how to perform a clean boot
    in Windows.

    Looking forward to your response.
     
  3. 100% CPU Usage after Windows 10 upgrade

    Hello Aaron,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.

    Most of the time, computers only use a small fraction of their CPU power. In fact, many computers use less than 5% of their CPU most of the time. When you open an application, play a video game, or encode media file, the CPU usage will rise or spike temporarily.
    Once the CPU intensive process completes, the CPU usage should once again drop down to lower level. Most applications will not use up more than 50% of your CPU for an extended period of time. However, some programs and system processes can use up a large amount
    of CPU without you even knowing it. This may happen if a program gets stuck in an infinite loop or encounters an unexpected error.

    I suggest you to perform Safe mode and Clean boot procedures on the PC by following the steps below.

    Step 1: I suggest you to boot your PC in Safe mode by following the steps from the link below and check if the issue is resolved.

    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer with limited drivers necessary to run Windows. The words
    Safe Mode appear at the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using.

    Expand the options to boot into Safe Mode:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    Reboot the PC to exit from Safe mode.

    To know more about Safe mode, following is an article on
    Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)
    (Applies to Windows 10 also):

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-safe-mode

    Step 2: If the issue persists, perform Clean boot on your PC by following the steps from the link below and check if the issue is resolved.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

    I suggest you to perform clean boot by following the steps from the link below and check if the issue is resolved.

    You can open the system configuration window in Windows 10:

    a. Using run command.

      • Press Windows Key + R keys on the Keyboard.
      • Type msconfig.msc and press Enter.

    b. Using Cortana.

      • Press Windows icon key on the keyboard and type msconfig.
      • Select the top most search result.
    Follow the steps from 3 under How to perform a clean boot
    for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 from the link below (The steps for clean boot suggested in the link below for
    Windows 8/8.1 is applicable for Windows 10 as well):

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Disclaimer: Start the computer in normal mode refer the section,
    How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting
    from the link above.

    Write to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 1809 corrupt after clean install causing 100% CPU usage

    cpu usage at 100%

    CPU usage at 100% from start up for no apparently good reason. Service Host appears to be the problem but I cant narrow it down more than that at present.

    Any suggestions?

    I am using Windows 10 full release version 64 bit.
