    You said your cpu usage is pegged high by stuff like discord. So its the apps your running that are hogging cpu resources and nothing out of the ordinary.
    Not sure what your trying to accomplish here since nothing seems to be wrong.

    even a old windows 7 key will activate it then once you link to your email you don't even need that again

    You might have a trojan miner in your system. I had one that deactivated itself as soon as I opened task manager. Only spotted it for split a second and deleted manually.
