System (ntoskrnl.exe) high CPU usage on Windows 11

ivall pl 0 Reputation points


since yesterday System (ntoskrnl.exe) task uses about 30% - 50% of my CPU. I've already tried doing clean boot, but it didn't help. Turning off windows search and scanning for viruses too didn't help.

My version of Windows 11: 25314.rs_prerelease.230303-1411

What I can do?

    Click the Start menu. Then type cmd in the search box. Right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.

    When you get into Command Prompt, input sfc /scannow and press Enter.

    Open the command prompt as administrator, type the command below and hit enter:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:ISOmountpath\install.wim

    [source iso =win 11 iso]

    Hi, @S.Sengupta

    sfc didn't help (nothing found) and instead of restorehealth I've used checkhealth and scanhealth, nothing found too.

    I fixed this issue by causing system crash (stack crash and kernel).

    Also 2 days ago I wanted to cancel installing game from xbox app and it got bugged - I think since that time system task used 30-50% CPU. After system crash game got installed and issue got fixed xD
