Google Chrome can be a memory hog, but Chrome’s other features are so good that people keep using it. But what if a feature that you never used ended up being a resource hog? That would be annoying to say the least.
Well, for some Windows users, after the release of the Windows 10 KB4512941 update, there have been problems. Many users are reporting that there could be a bug that is causing Cortana to consume more resources than it should. Cortana is Microsoft’s answer to Apple’s Siri.
Some users are reporting that due to Cortana hogging resources, their PCs are now suffering from slowdowns. They say that Cortana is causing resource spikes of anywhere between 30-40% and even using system memory when not in use. It also looks like Microsoft had a chance to deal with the issue before the update was released, but they didn’t. We don’t know why this is.
When the update was being tested, users were giving feedback through the Feedback Hub where some had pointed the issue out. With the growing number of complaints, we are confident that Microsoft will look into the problem and is likely busy working on a fix as I type this.
