I just had to to do this. This usage has creeped up slowly over the summer. In the beginning it was no issue, then around 3-4%, then in the 10’s and today I saw it hit the 20’s and decided enough was enough. I was having close to 15~20% constant CPU usage just watching Youtube (edit for more info: no torrent clients running, nothing fancy running - I have a busy LAN in terms of devices if that helps, but there was practically nothing running on my pc at the time except youtube and a couple reddit tabs in chrome).
Specs: Core i5-3570k @4.2ghz / 16GBram / Win10v1703(15063.540) Glasswire v1.2.109.
Made this change and cpu usage is 0-1% now, watching the very same YTvideo. This had been bothering me for a few weeks, finally decided to Google it.
Can this “issue” be fixed in the next build please?
