So I decided to buy a new Western Digital 2tb Hard Drive. After I got done installing it I decided to install CS GO and Apex on it first.
When I started playing CS GO (Apex was still downloading) I noticed some stuttering and checked task manager and saw that my CPU was at 100%.
I restarted my computer and at idle it still goes to 100%
Why is that?
My CPU is a Ryzen 5 2600

It does the same thing
100% sometimes at idle without the hard drive
It's probably Chrome doing it's "harmful programs" and "malware" scan. It's the reason I tossed Chrome in favor of Brave, which is based on Chrome, but without most of the google garbage. Chrome would constantly scan and all I could hear was my storage drives sounding like banshees wailing for hours until I figured out it was Chrome scanning all my drives. I would uninstall Chrome and either install Firefox or try Brave if you prefer the Chrome UI. https://brave.com/

Is your hard drive brand new or used new?? I had a drive go bad and it was causing my CPU to run at 100% when I was copying files or running anything off it.

I've never had an issue with chrome, maybe I've just been lucky.
