I have:

GTX 1660 Ti
i7-9700 @ 3.00 GHz
16 GB RAM

I've never had issues with this, usually it would be in the 60s-70s when running games like call of duty, but more recently it's at a steady 100% when playing games, freezing my pc. I've cleared up storage for room for virtual memory, I've ran a few network and pc tests, and my drivers are updated, but I dot know where the issue is coming from. Any help would be really appreciated.

Open up a website, any destination. Then check Task Master to see whats pulling usage. Wouldn't surprise me if you'd picked up a Trojan somewhere, they can be sneaky, and don't activate until the browser or net port is active.

Check other games. Occasionally, games get updates, especially when run through Steam or Origin etc, and these'll include bug fixes for the bug fixes and more half-ashed attempts at anti-cheats, that quite often do more harm than good. Not uncommon for high cpu usage to be a common complaint.
