Nearly all OEM PCs are loaded (down) with what we call crapware. This includes utilities that offer no more functionality than what's included with Windows to begin with. Some of these run all the time and do nothing but give you irritating reminders to do something or buy something. You don't give specs on your PC but a good place to see what's running is Task Manager. From there you can also check Performance details.

Right click the Task Bar, select Start Task Manager.

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...
