Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2gen: High CPU usage, fan noise, battery

2017-07-05, 10:34 AM

I received my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2gen (i7, OLED). Unfortunately the CPU usage is constantly around 30% (reaching up to 100%), the fan is on all the time and the battery is empty in 2 hours. The main reasons for the high CPU usage are the following three programmes:

- Sophos web intelligence (which I have to have installed according to my employer)

- WMI provider host (I tried deinstalling it, but then I can no longer access the network drives)

- Synaptics TouchPad 64-bit Enhancements

Any ideas what I could do to solve the issue? Thanks!
