How to fix the high CPU and Disk usage

You must access the register.
In the search window, type winver to find out which version you have.

Then type regedit in the search window and then click on that icon that appears above.

CPU

Launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in the Start menu and navigate to the following path:

For version 1511
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker
Look for the Start entry and change its value from dword:00000003 to dword:00000004 (simply replace the 3 at the end of the value with 4).

For version 1607 & 1703

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TimeBrokerSvc
Look for the Start entry and change its value from dword:00000003 to dword:00000004 (simply replace the 3 at the end of the value with 4).

For version 1709 & 1803

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBrokerSvc
Or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TimeBrokerSvc

Look for the Start entry and change its value from dword:00000003 to dword:00000004 (simply replace the 3 at the end of the value with 4).


Changing this value could have an impact on Cortana´s performance, but it appears to be closely connected to the high CPU usage in Windows 10. In case you´re not using Cortana at all, (not available in Dutch) you´re on the good side. Otherwise, setting reminders won´t work.
