  1. Windows Explorer using high CPU.


    Windows explorer is constantly using over 15% cpu for whatever reason and total cpu utilisation is up at 17% at idle . I've tried everything: uninstalling AVG Which was using similar cpu at the same time, deleting all shortcuts on the desktop, using the chkdsk commands, running msconfig and disabling all non microsoft programs on startup. After doing the last one i noticed the cpu utilization was down to 0-2% at idle. Explorer then shot up the task mananger processes list and took first place in cpu usage. If i change tabs to the details section in task manager, the amount of physical memory in use by the program at the moment is 512,000K and keeps rising I dont know if thats supposed to happen. I have an Intel i-7 8750H, 16 gb of RAM and a RTX 2060. yes this is a laptop

    :)

  2. 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.

  3. Windows Explorer high CPU Usage in Windows 10

    To further troubleshoot the issue, we suggest checking the Task Manager again to see what are the
    applications that have high CPU usage. To do this, follow the same steps you did from the previous reply:

    • 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.

    However, based on your response above, it seems that you may need to create a new user account again and just install your apps manually instead of copying them as your
    previous user account might be corrupted.

    Once your done with the steps, please let us know how it goes.

    Hi Arief,

    It can be software conflicts that are causing your high CPU usage. However, we need to gather more information for us to provide the best solution to your concern. Kindly answer the following questions:

    • Which build and version of Windows are you using?
    • Which update was installed when the issue occurred?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you run the System Maintenance troubleshooter. See steps below:

    • In the search box, type Control Panel and select Control Panel.
    • Click on Troubleshooting.
    • On the left panel, click on View all.
    • Click on System Maintenance option.
    • Click on Next and follow the on-screen instructions to troubleshoot the issue.

    Looking forward to your reply.
