Cubase using 10% CPU with no project open.

Realtime ASIO meter has a tiny bit of utilization and Task Manager says 10% CPU for Cubase…but nothing is open, just the steinberg hub. When I close steinberg hub, it goes back to 1%. Still, this seems like something is wrong on my system. Can someone help?

seems to be resolved now. Only things I changed:

-Exclude windows defender from sample drives
-Installed Windows 10 updates
-Changed Nvidia control panel settings to “Performance” instead of “Quality”
-rebooted the system.

Might have been the reboot that fixed it.
