Windows 10: CPU load Solved

    CPU load


    I have PC Matic on my Windows 10 computer and scan the computer once a week. Last week my CPU load Test went from 6% to 31%! Would Windows cause this?? I've had a couple of "issues" with Win10 lately and am wondering if Windows is the cause should I format my drive and install Win10 clean.

    Could you explain the issues you've been having with Windows lately?

    Were you using the PC when the scan was running? 31% load on a modern CPU is practically nothing to worry about. With about 20 or so threads open in Chrome for TenForums and Pandora, my CPU is hovering around 70%.

    Really? You should not be using 70% CPU looking at static web pages. Something is wrong there.

    If I open 20 tabs for tenfoums my CPU is about 2% and NONE of it is from the browser. Lots of memory, sure but CPU? Doing what?

    I agree... your browsers are taking a lot of CPU time... I have a youtube tab in background + this one and only use 5%... Using Firefox of course.

    No real big issues with Windows 10 yet (a little slow once in a while). And I do NOT have any programs running while I scan with PC Matic. From what everyone is saying 31% is no big deal. I was just wondering as I did not know for sure. Just wondering why it changed is all.
