System startup. Powershell.exe is started by Ekrn.exe which runs continuous and uses 20%+ cpu time.

Procexp - Shows the process is running

Who is the parent process? Ekrn.exe?

  • Administrators

Please do the following when PowerShell is consuming CPU:

  1. Run as an administrator:
    wpr -start GeneralProfile
  2. After about 30s, run:
    wpr -stop trace.etl
  3. Create a dump of the PowerShell process via the task manager or the Procdump tool by Microsoft:
    procdump -ma powershell.exe

Supply both trace.etl as well as the dump for perusal.
