    Runtime Broker

    Hi there. My CPU temp kept being elevated. After doing a lot of troubleshooting and also reseating and applying fresh thermal paste, I finally realized that the CPU load was causing a serious problem, and it all pointed to Runtime Broker. When I delete the task, my CPU temp is normal, about 30+ degrees. However, Runtime Broker keeps showing up and using much memory. I've read some forums, but nobody really says how to handle it. Someone says it is connected with live tiles. Can't figure out which one... I've got 2 other PCs with Windows 10; neither one of them has this problem. So I am planning on refreshing/resetting the system, or reinstalling Windows from scratch. Thanks for any tip.

    Thanks, Bazz. That took care of it. Before, my CPU load was up to 30, or 40 at idle. Now it's less than 10. And temp has gone down to what it should be.
