  3. Windows Driver Foundation High CPU Usage Problem

    Hi Markus,

    WUDFHost or Windows Driver Foundation is a set of libraries and tools which helps in reducing the complexity while writing Windows drivers. It pushes the drivers to user mode. This service is necessary for the overall stability
    of the system.

    You've mentioned that all your apps and programs have been updated, is Windows included in them? How about your drivers, especially your WiFi driver?

    Have you ran the System Maintenance Troubleshooter? Running this troubleshooter will find and clean up unused files and shortcuts, and perform maintenance tasks.

    • Right-click the Start icon, then select Control Panel.
    • Choose the Large icons option from the View by drop down list found on the upper-right part of the Control Panel window.
    • Locate then select Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all from the left pane.
    • Locate and click System Maintenance to run the troubleshooter then follow the next steps.

    You may also perform a Clean Boot to make sure that no application is causing the high CPU usage.

    Clean Boot helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when running or installing a program in Windows 10.

    Note: Please go through the section: How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot of the Kb article to boot the computer in normal startup after fixing the issue.

    Here are some other steps you may take to troubleshoot the high CPU usage issue you're in.

    Let us know what happens next.

    Regards.

    Windows Driver Foundation High CPU Usage

    High CPU Usage by Windows Driver Foundation

    Yesterday after updating my PC I noticed that Windows Driver Foundation was taking a large percentage of my CPU up. After searching the internet I found a fix which worked. By reinstalling my WLAN driver, Windows Driver Foundation disappeared. However,
    today it has appeared again. Taking up a large percentage CPU again ad making y laptop fairly sluggish. How can I fix this?
