You stated in your original post that you "have nothing running to cause it". But then you posted a screenshot of Task Manager which showed relatively high CPU usage and an incomplete list of processes. I was suggesting that you show us the complete list when the CPU usage is high.

You are convinced that Task Manager shows this CPU usage on the tab named Performance without showing you the image that is causing the high usage on the tab named Processes. I've never seen such. I'm not saying that it does not happen. I'm just saying that I've never seen that happen.

There are infections that can hide themselves from Task Manager, but I would think that these infections would not show up on any tab within Task Manager. Their CPU usage would be hidden from Task Manager. But I could be wrong about that.

Layback Bear raises an excellent question about compressed files. I wonder what process would show a high CPU usage while it was decompressing files to be used or compressing files after they are written to.

By default, Windows Explorer should show compressed folders and compressed files using blue letters. Folders/files that are not compressed are normally labeled with black letters. Are most of the folders and files on your C drive compressed? Are the two Program Files folders compressed? How about the Windows folders and its sub-folders?

Perhaps others can take you up on the offer to Skype. I don't have/want that on this company owned laptop.
