Hi, originally Windows 10 was running smooth for me. Since maybe the last major update, things have just been running really laggy. Here's a couple processes I saw that are using up a good amount of CPU/RAM.




Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

 Not having a clue as to what your CPU and memory is, or what your computer was doing when you got those figures, I'm afraid it's impossible to guess.  Try running Speccy and posting the results here, and we can take a look.  I have to point out that Windows has a lot of timed tasks that periodically wake up and do things "under the covers", so that 11.4% could something like that.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Microsoft Windows Search updates its index at a regular basis. If you don't use Windows Search very often you could set the Windows Search Service to disabled (recommended on SSD).
