I have disabled all programs that are running in the background (including Defender and my antivirus). The issue still persists.
Also, I have checked the task manager as you suggested and the largest cpu-sucking process was my firefox browser (at 49,264 k), than was my internet explorer. I did find one process that I had no idea what it was for, it was something labeled csrss.exe, but it only consumes 1,094 k.
