Hi ! I have an ASUS X541S and when I active the Wifi, the CPU and all others ( memory, disk but particularly) the CPU are around 100%. When I turn off the Wifi it's about 30%. My laptop is really slow and it also starts slowly even to put my password account. I noticed that it appears when I updated my computer to Windows 10 1909 but I can't go back to an older version.
Can someone help me, please ?

Hello, try to boot windows in safe mode with network and see if the CPU usage still goes high.

Sometimes this is caused by a Windows update, in which case you just have to be patient and let the update download and install, or reschedule it for another time.
It is also possible that you have a weak processor and/or a lot of startup programs, so you get slowness for the first few minutes after startup. It is normal to see a CPU spike when opening heavy webpages such as Gmail.

did it and when I activated the WIFI, the CPU was at 100% because of WMI Provider that was at 80%. When I opened Chrome, WMI disappearead and Chrome was now at 70%

I waited some minutes in the safe mode and I noticed that when I was in the task manager with Chrome opened, the CPU was about 30% but when I came back to Chrome and reduce the window of task manager, it reached 100%. So maybe the problems are Chrome and the WIFI.

you may remove chrome and reinstall it or try Microsoft edge to confirm that the problem with chrome. for the WIFI try use Ethernet if this fixed the issue and worked fine using Ethernet cable this might a problem with WIFI driver also you can run this command in CMD "sfc/scannow" without quotes this will scan system for any corruption in system files.

Windows updates usually take place silently in the background, it is hard to know when they are even happening. It doesn't really matter which update it is, because most of them are a major strain on system resources.
I am not sure this is your problem, I was just mentioning it as a possibility.

I had this problem once, thus the reason I started to disable services/tasks like:
Code:
schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\NlaSvc\WiFiTask" /Disable
schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\NetTrace\GatherNetworkInfo" /Disable
schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\WwanSvc\NotificationTask" /Disable
when I activated the WIFI, the CPU was at 100% because of WMI Provider that was at 80%.
