    Then I'm out of ideas although several post ago I had asked if you would consider removing all addins. Pretty sure you had said you disabled them but not that you had removed them.

    Found this on starting IE with no add-ons. Might be worth a shot.

    There is the inplace repair / upgrade that will move you to the Creator's Update unless you have bootable media from your current version.

    I don't think I would do this unless you are prepared to deal with potential Creator update issues.

    Okay, I just tried the information of the link above starting IE with no add-ons. It didn't have any effect and actually CPU usage went up if anything.
    I'm already running the Creators Update, it automatically loaded about a month ago. I didn't have this problem after it loaded however so that's not the cause. I'm not having any problems at all with Creators Update, actually things seem to be running a little smoother since I got it.

    For the last couple of weeks IE 11 is constantly using about 10% of my CPU power all the time. I've run several different security checks and they all come up without any issues. I've disabled all add
    What have you run?
    Resetting IE made no difference and removing all add-ons also made no difference?
    And a clean boot did not resolve the problem?

    For security I use Norton Security all the time and have run Malwarebytes regular edition plus the rootkit software from them and everything comes up clean.
    Resetting IE and removing all add-ons made no difference made no difference. Also a clean boot did not resolve the problem.

    Sometimes running Windows performance recorder WPR may enable you to find one application that is impacting another. Then un-installation of the misbehaving application improves the performance by lowering one or more of the numbers listed in task manager. The challenge will be learning how to interpret the results or finding someone that already has experience that can interpret the results.
