Reduce Windows 10 CPU usage:

If you have installed the Windows 10 KB4512941 update (or even if you haven't for that matter), you may be alarmed by how much CPU usage Windows 10 uses on non-essential tasks in the background.

If you open Task Manager you'll see what I mean. A good way to prevent this is to have something that shuts these programs down for you. Well, here's an example:

@echo off
taskkill /f /im ShellExperienceHost.exe
taskkill /f /im SecurityHealthSystray.exe
taskkill /f /im igfxTray.exe
taskkill /f /im SearchUI.exe
taskkill /f /im OneDrive*
taskkill /f /im RuntimeBroker*
taskkill /f /im browser_broker*
taskkill /f /im ibtsiva.exe
taskkill /f /im GoogleCrashHandler*
taskkill /f /im Skype*
taskkill /f /im WinStore.App*
taskkill /f /im armsvc*
taskkill /f /im MicrosoftEdge*

Now, that should certainly help. If you want it to open when you login, put it in:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

(Everything in this folder runs at startup)
