    Windows 10 will bring out any faults the system was probably having before.

    Hopefully you created a usb boot version of windows 10, If not do so now. then do a full clean install of windows 10.

    The upgrade path is a flaky experience at best.

    If you only upgraded it may solve it, if it was truly caused by OS upgrade install. CPU percentage rising for no known reason yet is the biggest concern, biggest part of this issue could be caused by something else on PC.

    Wonder if some of the games that require DirectX 9c will work well on Ten, if will allow or need it. Say like older Batman Arkham Asylum,Arkham City, so on.....
    World of tanks, and call of duty waw work good and they use the old directx i believe.

    So far, all of the games that I've tried in my steam library that only use DX9 are still working for me on W10.

    The only issue that I had with it was when I first tried loading a game and saw that I was getting only 1 fps at the main menu, but after investigating I found out that the Nvidia graphics driver was failing installation so W10 was either using the W7 driver or just a generic Windows vga driver. Once I cleaned out all the old Nvidia stuff the new W10 driver installed perfectly. Now that game that was getting only 1 fps is back up to it's 60 fps.

    Surprised by this you did not notice any other performance issues before trying games. Failed meaning you updated it or not at the time ?

    I did actually note one performance issue before trying games which was the sluggishness of the W10 start menu. I wrote about it on one of the topics about it on this forum.

    Edit:
    I also noted the sluggishness in the Windows solitaire game, but just chalked it up to being the game itself, although I've not retried the solitaire game to see if it was driver related or truly the game.
    /Edit


    It failed in that when I tried to install the W10 Nvidia driver it told me that everything installed but I didn't notice (didn't look close enough) to see that while everything else supposedly installed okay, the graphic driver itself had the red x next to it indicating that it failed to install that and I simply didn't notice it.

    Then I rebooted tried a game and saw that it was still bad performance so I tried to reinstall the driver package again and that time around I noticed the red x next to the graphic driver listing so I uninstalled anything that had Nvidia as part of the name in programs and features, rebooted, installed the new package (which installed fine) and rebooted again (twice for good measures lol) and since then I've not noticed any sluggishness to my games. Although the start menu still feels sluggish and now I have to assume it's the way they designed it to try to make it look "smooth" at the price of it actually feeling sluggish.

    Recall issues to begin with for NVIDIA installer and Windows 10, originally when i did the upgrade i had same red x in device manager, but eventually windows installed newest one. If you tried to use the downloaded software driver the installer was failing at first, as said did read about this issue before. Did not like idea of it installing it for me because i thought it put GeForce Experience on to, but did not. Assuming your games carried over from upgrade too.
