    Win 10 after creators update installed

    After creators update installed I have gotten pages Windows services running. My machine is running at about 50% CPU. At idle it's usually around 15 to 2%. I've never seen so many services running at 1 time sine Win NT!!

    A change was made in Creators Update regarding how services were run. Previously each instance svchost.exe could be hosting multiple services. From 1703 on each service is hosted separately. It looks at first glance that a lot more services are running, but actually it's about the same number - it's just that you can see them all now.

    In Windows 10 v1703 systems with more than 3.5 GB of RAM, each service would get its own service host (svchost.exe), instead of running under a shared service process....
    ...from Windows 2000 to up until Windows 10 v1607, each svchost.exe process used to host a set of services a model originally designed to reduce resource usage by services.

    That's because svchost.exe only started hosting multiple services from Win2000 on.

    The services are no more bloated than they were before the Creators Update. It's just that you can see them all individually now, so it looks like there are more of them. Previously each svchost.exe was running two, three, four or more services so you didn't see them all - but they were there, hiding from sight.

    I know my CPU is now being taxed about 30% higher than normal & according to "CPU Temp" about 30% warmer than normal.
    How come

    In Task Manager click on the CPU column to sort by descending order of processor time. Do that on the Processes and the Details tabs. That should give you an idea of what's taxing your processor.

    Post screenshots, once identified we may be able to help further.
    (try not to include your 'capture' utility, it's obscuring the view. the snipping tool is a better alternative)

    1st of all what are all these blank gear icons(Snippit Screen Capture 01 & 02)?? It looks to me "services DCOM: Server process launcher" & "Windows Explorer" are the 2 big users of the CPU's time

    You could use Autoruns to check /disable what programs / services / tasks are loading on startup
