Hi all,
I've been noticing some problems on my laptop lately. It's on Windows 10 (64-bit) and when I open the task manager, my CPU usage is always over 30% even when completely idle. This is apparently due to a service called Time Broker taking up an immense amount of the CPU usage (between 29 to 37%). I've tried googling this problem but could only find people referencing the service Runtime Broker instead of just Time Broker.
Does anyone know anything I could try to fix this? I've re-installed Windows at the start of September and there's barely any programs installed on it, since I basically only use my laptop for Office, Spotify, Netflix and some emulators.

Would really appreciate some help, cheers!

im wondering if its a messed update or a trojan dressed as the time broker service. that server should not be using the cpu as much as you describe. In my experience with 10, it updates so much and you cant stop the updates that it seems to F up things. alot of clients computers i serviced were because of a bad update. It like you have to use 24/7 drive imaging software in case it messes up.

    What's the point of "confirming" games you know will get released. Like Nintendo "confirming" a Zelda sequel. "We can't be sure Nintendo is working on a new Zelda game, or if a new Zelda game will ever be released, until they officially confirm it."

    "There is literally no way to know if they will ever release a new Zelda game, it's wild speculation until they officially confirm it."
