Runtime Broker and Microsoft Photos using too much cpu resources

So my PC is used by me and another person. When it's only me logged on, everything is fine, only a few percent cpu usage and the cpu clocks stay low. When the other person logs on and then goes afk, the the Runtime Broker and Microsoft Photos start using like ~25% of the cpu and that doesn't allow to cpu to clock down. So high idle power usage and wasted resources. Also if I close either one of the processes, they both stop but will restart after a few minutes. Even logging out of that user doesn't fix the problem, only bull computer restart. 


Anyone has a possible solution except fresh install?
