I noticed my processor temps keep moving. When I checked Task Manager my CPU stays at 13 percent ( scvhost .exe system). How can I find out what is going on?

It's entirely natural for processor temperature to change as various system processes run.  If a system scan from your antivirus is running and indexing is running, for just two examples, they can increase the load enough to have temperatures change.

 

Unless you are anywhere near (and I mean very near) to the maximum temperature that your processor runs under normally (and see the spec sheet at your CPU/APU maker's support site or on cpu-world.com) there is nothing to be concerned about at all.

I have never seen my CPU usage at idle stay at 14 percent.

there is a nice tutorial provision, explaining svchosts and how to track what is using them. covering multiple Windows  OS

 

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/list-services-running-under-svchostexe-process/

 

14% idle is kind of odd, especially if it is a process cloaked in a svchost  . if it was something else showing up descriptively (such as antivirus) , then that would be directly attrributable.

 

when you reboot, does the abnormally high cpu using svchost immediately show up, or is there a delay?

can you sort by by processes/usage, and see what the top 10 resource-hogs are?
