what does task manager show as running that is requiring more than 1-3% of resources (when browser is closed)....

you might try a brief Malwarebytes Antimalware scan, just to make sure no nefarious processes are mining crypto-currency, etc., on your rig...

(I'd also open 'updates' just to make sure none are actively being downloaded/installed during this flurry of CPU usage activity)
