I have a Windows 10 Desktop. My son has a limited account and I have an admin account. My son doesn't believe in signing out when done - he simply locks the PC when he is done and I can then log in to my own account.
But whenever he does that and I am working on my account I notice that LockApp.exe always takes up between 25 - 30% under my son's username (Taskmanager/other users processes). Surely Windows shouldnt take this much CPU for a background account! This is constant i.e. I have been working for hours in this mode and LockApp continues to take up 25-30% CPU in the background.
TaskManager shows the following path: C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy
Is there any way I can resolve this? Does LockApp have any settings to disable such behaviour?
BTW I have looked at other similar sounding threads re: LockApp but none of them seem to have solutions (as yet!). I have run Microsoft Security Scanner without it detecting any malware + I have Windows Defender turned on as well so I dont think malware is a cause.
Any other suggestions please?
