Browsers Chrome, firefox, Edge Browsers raise CPU to %100

HP Recommended
HP 255 G6 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP 255 G6 Notebook PC running windows 10 version v10.0.17134.191. Everytime I run web browsers Chrome, firefox, Edge Browsers, it raises the CPU to %100. I've disabled hardware acceleration, multiple services people spoke of online. I've noticed that all the browsers show many sub processes in the task manager of windows 10 and chrome. a lot of them look like adds. I read that the problem may be from a windows 10 upgrade/updates. I've done numerous things to optimize the computer from what I read online with out success. I have also run ccleaner, chkdsk, sfc as well. I even reinstalled Windows 10 with the same problem. If I don't open a browser, everything works good. Any Thoughts? Thanks.

Read through this Advisory at Microsoft. Number 18 in the FAQ may help:

Some forum members reported that KB4078130 makes the registry changes needed.

Thanks for the response.

I re-installed Windows 10 with the latest patches with nothing loaded and had the same problem. The way I resolved the problem was by putting and older Windows 10 build on it and it fixed it. I guess it didn't like the lastest and greatest.

Just to note,

I was getting high CPU, disk and memory usage from Edge until I disabled anything that is not necassary. Like Windows Smartscreen or whatever it's called and all the data-mining options and anything else that "Makes your windows experience better" - (condescending A-holes!) but now I get 0% CPU with two Edge pages open (at rest).

Beka.

CherylG, is there any way to check if that issue is the cause of performance issues on a particular machine?
