    Cpu usage skyrockets when I interact with a program


    Just switching over to a program causes it to go to 60% no matter what - even in freaking explorer.Cpu usage skyrockets when I interact with a program-hnvnc.png
    This is just an example. It happens with every program which is very annoying.

    Hi, could you say what the process name is for the top item 'Search' please?

    You might try temporarily stopping this service:
    Cpu usage skyrockets when I interact with a program-1.png

    Also please run
    chkdsk c: /scan
    from an admin command prompt
    and report the summary (just the final) result.

    Repeat for any other disk or partition.

    The forum asked you:
    Cpu usage skyrockets when I interact with a program-win-10-version.png

    What sort of disk do you have?

    Noted: your laptop appears to be from around 2014 - Packard bell Te69HW.

    History: (so often omitted by posters)
    - how long have you had this problem?
    - what happened around the time this started?
    - was any update received or change made?

    Thanks.

    Also would like to mention that this happens with everything not just search.
    Ive had the issue for a few months but I didn't get help on reddit so I came here instead.
    Nothing, it just started and I knoiw that because I use a metered connection and I dont install updates ever.
    Ive changed nothing.

    You find what Windows version you're using by running winver on a CMD window.
    Find Windows 10 Build Number

    Thanks. The odd thing about your task manager screenshot is that first process (don't know what that is) and that search indexing is using CPU significantly.

    It shouldn't be, unless many files have changed and it's indexing them, or you're rebuilding the index. Even then, just moving the mouse should stop it.

    Does that always use so much CPU time?

    Please try a clean boot, and compare performance after that.
    (Google, or see tutorial if unsure how).

    I would say that CPU usage skyrockets when you interact with a program is a normal procedure.

    Anything you do is commanded by the CPU. Some tasks are realized so fast that you don't see a big spike. Some (like disk cleanup) take a long time and it almost monopolize the CPU. Also, some tasks runs on the background, like downloading a upgrade or de fragmenting a HDD. You don't know what is running but you see that the CPU is busy.

    As you have Ver 1903 I would say that Windows is preparing a upgrade to latest version.
    windows 10 2104 is to be released this month.

    It wasn't. I just searched google on it and it did that randomly, but I have decided to downgrade to 8.1 anyway. My stupid school is forcing us to use a crappy uwp app that isnt on the 10 store, Most of my classmates use the school provided sp3 with 8.1 but my friends and I dont do I'll just have to go back. Thanks for the help tho
