Before sending this, I have Googled the issue and have had no success; this, I am turning here for help.
Recently I have had high CPU usage on my Toshiba Laptop, Windows 10, all latest updates installed. On checking, I found that it was the spooler subsystem that is using 26-29% CPU. I have tried all of the fixes that I could find and the problem persists. (1) For example, I ran the Printer Troubleshooter, and it returned no errors. (2) I checked to ensure that I have the latest drivers installed and I do. The printer (HP ENVY 5055) prints with no problems. (3) I stopped the spooler in Administrative Services and then tried to delete any cached print jobs at C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS. There were no jobs there.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what else may be wrong?
Thanks for any help.
