Two immediate options:

1) Run the built-in Windows 10 troubleshooters - they may find and fix something.

2) Run "sfc /scannow".

As always, be sure that all data is backed up and that you have a recovery disk or USB drive available.

You should have multiple backups of everything: data, cloned drive, images. Preferably multiple backups with some stored away from your home if possible.

With respect to the original problem you will need to do some additional reading and research.

Google "windows logon gui application cpu usage" and vary the wording as necessary. Objective is to look for other possible options and solutions.

E.g.:

No need to immediately start doing things and trying every option that shows up. Avoid, for example, solutions that want to download some software "fix" or tinker with the Registry.

Just look and read. If settings and configuration changes are suggested look at your settings to see what they may be.

Hopefully, you will notice some other relevant factor that matches your computer's high CPU usage.

When you do identify some possible solution remember to change only one thing at a time. Keep notes in case you need to go back and undo something.
