CPU Usage 100% Until I Open Task Manager

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a custom build PC where  I stream games on YouTube everyday. From past few days I am facing a weird issue with my PC which is CPU usage is showing 100% until I open the task manager. Is there any way to fix this? 

Thanks

Hello  :welcome:

You need to have patience / allow Task Manager to settle in.  The behavior you describe is not unusual.

Task Manager will settle down in most cases after a while.  Allow a minute or two for Task Manager to settle in with more accurate display.   You may use View . Refresh.

 

The question needing to be asked:  What are you trying to get to ?

IF you are suspecting some kind of infection  - - - >  do scans with Malwarebytes for Windows.

Then, later on, take an inventory of all of the programs on your box that are auto-started with Windows.

See what programs are NOT a absolute-must-have for auto-start.

 

You may  want to review this topic and see if it applies to your system as well.   It takes a while for Task Manager to compute tasks & then refresh the display..

Hello.   How are things today ?

 

IF you think the PC may have some infection,  then,  DO a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows

 

and

The Microsoft Safety Scanner  is a free Microsoft stand-alone virus scanner that  can be used to scan for & remove malware or potentially unwanted software from a system.

The download links & the how-to-run-the tool are at this link at Microsoft

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/intelligence/safety-scanner-download

 

Let me know the result of this.

The log is named MSERT.log 

the log will be at  %SYSTEMROOT%\debug\msert.log   which in most cases is

C:\Windows\debug\msert.log

Please attach that log with your reply.
