  • Hi,

    Please check the following:

    1. Go to Task Scheduler, if you there are some useless scheduled tasks, disable them.

    2.Temporarily disable all the third party security programs and boot in Clean Boot and Safe Mode to test the issue.

    3. Using your anti-virus program to scan the system.

    If any update, please feel free to let me know.
