Still no fix ? but now its 74-80%

It's part of a security thing, the file was being scanned - you can turn it off in edge setting, or just go back to lock icon in the url bar and click on it and then select "enhance security for this site" and then in the next little area click to toggle it off.

Certain defender scans really hit the cpu hard, like running a stability test - full scans do, so I think whatever tech is used there, its being used here too.
