Might this high usage be temporary, as would perhaps be found in the midst of a periodic full background scan, etc..?
(UVK has a "Kill all processes" option that might terminat whatever it is, or, alternatively, MS/SysInternal's "ProcessExplorer" should let you suspend/kill whatever tasks are spawning your errant/stubborn task)....
(Purely as points of reference, although a Defender scan may only use 12-15% cpu resources, a MalwareBytes scan, while active, hovers at 65-75% during the quick scan during those few minutes (on a 7700K, w/ 32GB of RAM)

Download and run Sysinternals' Process Explorer.
Double-click on the process name and select the Threads tab to see which thread is using the largest amount of CPU.
Also, enable the VirusTotal check in Process Explorer by clicking on Options > VirusTotal.com > Check VirusTotal.com
