  1. Windows Explorer high 100% CPU usage while playing games


    There is a strange issues with Windows Explorer. While i'm playing Need for speed payback and as soon as I complete the race, enter the garage, teleport etc, the Explorer always goes high CPU. It's getting worse if I play longer time. And on Mirrors Edge, Windows Explorer goes 100% for few seconds, down and up repeatly. Minimize it or switch to another window stops immediately. And as son as i open the game and play, it happens again

    I searched around the internet and all says must scan for virus. So i did, scanned for virus including rootkit using Malwarebytes, nothing. Ran scan disk and system repair, nothing. Checked Process Hacker, none of processes attached to Windows Explorer uses high cpu so thats itself that does that.

    I tried uninstall Malwarebytes, problem still remain

    I don't understand why this is the issue. My PC is running 1809 and was clean installed 4 months ago.

    Is there a way to deep check inside Windows Explorer to see what's going on?

    :)

  2. high cpu usage

    After downloading windows 10, anytime I run any programs, I get high CPU usage. It does not matter whether it is google chrome, task manager, playing games, whatever. Anything seems to spike the CPU usage. I have already run malwarbytes and my antivirus
    programs and find no viruses. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Windows Explorer high CPU Usage in Windows 10

    Hi Andrew,

    Usually, too many background processes can boost your CPU usage. Since you already disabled the apps that are not necessary on startup,
    we suggest checking the applications running once you have successfully boot Windows 10. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Click on the Start button and type Task Manager on the search box.
    • On the Task Manager window, you should see the programs running.
    • Click on the More details drop-down button to see the total number of apps running and their real-time CPU usage.

    From there, you should see what applications are running on high CPU usage. You can also
    restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service and see if your CPU performance will improve. Follow the instructions below to restart the service:

    • Click on the Start button and type Services.
    • Scroll down the list and look for Windows Management Instrumentation.
    • Right click on it and select Restart.

    Should you have further questions, please let us know.
