CPU utilization at GeForce and Windows Task manager is showing different stories

image.thumb.png.c8d6879ae32a3bc043478adbb545d1d4.png

 

i believe the windows task manager is telling the true story instead of the Geforce performance overlay. because my CPU fan is always spinning fast and the casing feels hot

 

How can i reduce the CPU usage so that I won't be always at 100%?

 

I see windows always come out with programmes to make my CPU running at 100% all the time.... and i don't like it

Task Manager should not use more than a few percent on a Ryzen 5000 system. Also, I've never seen it have a drop-down for subprocesses (the little arrow on the left).

 

Best guess: you have malware on your system disguised as Task Manager to make it less obvious.


You should run Windows Defender and Malwarebytes on the whole system and, if that doesn't work, back up and then reinstall Windows.

Task manager will usually show high usage for a couple of seconds after opening it, need to wait 5 or so for things to settle before taking a screenshot otherwise it's just garbage.

I assumed from the "always at 100%," and the thought to compare usage across different programs, that the OP gave it more than just a few seconds before concluding the usage is a problem.

 

But yes, if this picture was only taken a few seconds after Task Manager was opened, that usage wouldn't be unusual.
