So for the past week or so I've realized the games I've been playing have been stuttering occasionally. So I decided to check my Task Manager to see if any processes are using an excessive amount of CPU or GPU and I found that 99% of my CPU is being used at all times. The task that is most demanding at any given time usually uses a majority of my CPU, regardless of how minuscule the task is. If I only have task manager open it takes up to 80% of my CPU for absolutely no reason. I have a relatively decent CPU that should be able to multitask fairly well and this issue has never occurred in the past 6 months I've had this PC. It does not interrupt singular tasks as much as it interrupts me trying to multitask. No matter how little tasks I have open, 99% of my CPU will always be allocated. Additionally, it is not one singular program or set of programs using a majority of my CPU, rather it is whatever processes are currently open. I have run multiple virus checks and nothing has turned up, I have checked my hardware (there seem to be no deficiencies) and clean my PC regularly.
As for a list of my parts:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1400 (Quad Core @3.2GHz no overclocking)
GPU: Radeon RX 580 Series (4GB VRAM)
RAM: 8 GB DDR4-2400 Geil EVO Potenza
Motherboard: MSI Bazooka B350m
OS: Windows 10
