Question My CPU used to be fine but now runs at 100% while gaming

Feb 15, 2021
I used to have no issues while playing Smite, but now my pc (and MSI laptop) with an i7 8th gen and a 1050 ti keeps hitting 100% cpu usage and its cause huge frame drops. I've tried malwarebytes, updating windows, updating nvidea drivers, but none of it worked. Any ideas as to what could be the issue?
