    Windows 10 HIGH CPU Usage

    I have done a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and after my computer is on for about an hour or so a process in the task manager called "system and compressed memory" takes about 25-30% of my cpu cycles for no reason.It doesn't use much ram at all.Just cpu cycles.That happens only if i have a program or two running.I have noticed that it happens particularly often when chrome is open.When i close Chrome the cpu usage goes down.I downloaded process explorer and i found the file that is causing the high cpu's called dxgmms2.sys but i don't know what to do to stop it.Things i have tried to do.Disabling superfetch,reinstalling nvidia drivers(clean)reinstalling chrome,scanning with malwarebytes(nothing found)scanning withadwcleaner.My cpu is an amd fx 4350 4.2 ghz stock,my gpu is a gt 630 and i have 8 gigs of ram.Here are some screenshots: Process explorer:

    I had (have?) the same problem as you - 25-30% CPU for that compressed memory process. I tried all the same things and then some more, but eventually think I have found the solution. Since the problem only seemed to occur when Chrome was running, I started disabling all add-ons, and the problem seems to be fixed! The culprit - AdBlock! Any chance you're running this as well? If so, disable it and see what happens. It's been a day or so for me since I disabled it, and no problems in that time..
