Hi again Dash,
After rebooting your system after the ‘Start-up’ and ‘CC’ clean ups there should have been a change in both cpu and memory usage, so has that been noticeable to you?
Can you add the top row of your screenshot - total cpu & ram - thanks
This will help to see what your total running system was/is using.
Also a full screenshot of your performance tab in Task Manager with the GPU selected would also give a complete view of both processors running at the same time.
Just a few quick checks:
Are you using Alpha 9.1 ?
Are you using any add-on game cheat ?
If thats yes and no, then that helps in the diagnosis.
Comparing our computer systems just on the cpu your benchmark is roughly 25% higher
i7-7920 - benchmark - 9974
i3-8100 - benchmark - 8019
yet running FF the
i7-7920 - 54.6%
i3-8100 - 29.7%
At a rough guess, your cpu should be running at 24% under FF.exe
So there is a problem and quite a large one at that with your software somewhere…
More prodding and poking required
