    Windows Security App and Increased CPU Questions


    Hello all,



    I have some questions:


    1 Often times when I run a full scan on a Surface Laptop 1st gen, my CPU increases to high 90's or 100% usage, similarly the ram also increases and the base of the laptop goes hot. The device also makes an audible white-noise-like sound effect, sometimes it's more intense/loud. Any solutions for this issue or is this normal?

    Things I tried:

    - I tried a quick scan and none of the above happened,

    - I also tried restarting from offline scan and memory diagnostic test results from these scans said the device was fine displayed none of the aforementioned effects till I opened another program, used it a bit then left it in the background which I assume is normal because it's doing more things at once?


    2 For offline scans, I find that it sometimes restarts when it reaches over 90%, e.g. 92% or 99%, instead of 100%. Is this a normal behaviour?

    :)

    INCORRECT CPU FREQUENCY READING

    Hello Muhammad,

    CPU usage depends on the applications that are open to your device. To isolate the problem, we suggest that you answer the following questions:

    • Can you include a screenshot of the CPU reading?
    • Have you tried performing a
      clean boot
      to eliminate software conflicts?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Looking forward to your response.
