High CPU Usage!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I think this is for Windows 10 only, as that is what I read so far. Whatever it is I don't feel it's normal. So when ever I leave my PC idle for about 10 minutes, something called system and compressed memory will come on and start eating away CPU usage and making the CPU heat up fast. This started to happen a couple days ago, or I just noticed it now. Please someone tell me how to fix this? Or if this is normal? I haven't really checked if it runs while I work but when I move the mouse the usage will drop to about nothing and won't start back up using crazy usage, unless I idle for another 10 minutes. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I still have Win7 and for awhile my i7 cores were pegging to 100% alternately (not at same time) but just the same idling at 45 instead of the normal 35C. I found out it was Windows upgrade doing it. Turned that off and back to normal temps. I have no need of updates really just for MSE.

Could be same scenario as what you are seeing.

IIRC, i use windows resources to pin point where the issue resided.

Ok I'll look into it. Do you think I could use resource monitor to look for the culprit?

I downloaded something called proccess explorer and I found it was something called msmpeng.exe which is my windows defender. Is this normal? And if something is wrong how do I fix it.
