Deal with High CPU Usage after Windows 10 Update.
« on: May 17, 2017, 07:38:48 AM »
I just updated my laptop to Windows 10. And I found the CPU usage is very high after update. I tried to find some solutions to deal with it.
Finally, I found some effective ways. Here, I want to share with you that How to fix high CPU usage after Windows 10 update.

Way 1:Registry Hack:

Hit Win Key + R
Type in “Regedit” and then hit Enter.
Go to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management’
Find ‘ClearPageFileAtShutDown’ and change its value to 1
Restart the computer

Way 2: Fix the driver issue:

Open ‘Device manager’ and ‘Scan for hardware changes’.

This problems always happen after system update. Here I recommend you to use Driver Talent.

Way 3:Disable startup programs

Hit Win Key + R
Type ‘msconfig’ and press enter
The Task manager window will open. Click on the “Startup” tab and you will see a list of programs that run at startup.
Right click on the applications that you don’t want to run at startup and select “Disable”.

Way 4:Disable Superfetch Service

Superfetch service has been reported by many Windows 10 users as a likelihood causing of high disk performance or CPU usage issues after Creators Update. Follow the instructions below to stop the Superfetch service.

Step 1. Click the Start button and then type cmd.exe in the search box.

Step 2. Right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.

Step 3. Click Yes to continue on the prompt UAC window.

Step 4. Type the command net.exe stop superfetch and then hit Enter. Wait for the system to stop Superfetch service for you. You could see the results as below picture shows once it is stopped successfully.
