    I don't understand. Do you want to get high CPU usage? Or did you mean "why do I get..."?

    Most likely some operating system process. Unfortunately, IMO, Windows 10 is much worse than its predecessors in this regard.

    It is always a good idea to run a full malware scan, since some viruses might camouflage themselves as OS processes.

    Also, disable all services you don't need.

    svchost.exe isn't always associated with viruses, This is a generic / legitimate windows process that loads several other services to run Windows properly. You can check what svchost loads other programs, by clicking task manager > process and right click on svchost (might be there are several) and click go to service(s). It jumps to process tab, and from here you can see the what extra services are running. If you don't wish you can kill the process, but be carefully you have better knowledge about windows necessary services/ processes. Also stop Windows update service can help to overcome this issue.
