Hi, so whenever i open the pc, the CPU produced high noise, a quick solution is to open the task manager where the Microsoft windows search indexer is taking 80-90% of CPU but then after couple of seconds it disappaers. tried many online solutions ( https://windowsreport.com/fix-search-indexer-high-cpu/ , https://windows101tricks.com/windows-10-search-indexer-high-cpu-usage/ ) but none worked.
thanks
Just for yuks.
Use file explorer and go to each disk/properties.
Untick allow file indexing.....test

if you turn off indexing on every drive, off course its going to reduce usage. that was sort of choice number 5 in one of the links he tried. It seems rebuilding index was all he needed.

i assume you testing to see if its a particular drive

As per the op.
yeah tried that overnight but it just keeps going on and on

Perhaps that means it's fixed.
