Windows 10 IME Bug Causes High CPU Usage & Unresponsiveness

Windows 10 is the latest and most likely the final iteration of the Windows lineup by Microsoft. Microsoft dubbed it the complete platform and yet even today, we find bugs in the operating system. Microsoft also takes it upon itself to refer to these bugs in public announcements. One such occasion is today when Microsoft reports a high CPU usage bug due to an IME.

According to the report on WCCFTECH, Microsoft reported a bug with its Input Method Editor. Specifically the “(ChsIME.EXE) and Chinese Traditional (ChtIME.EXE)”. According to Microsoft, there is something different about this bug that unlike others, it doesn’t affect a particular Windows type. Instead, it affects all kinds of Windows 10 versions out there. What this bug really does is cause unresponsiveness in the input method or in some cases, it even causes high CPU usage for no reason at all.

According to Microsoft, they have looked over the issue and have resolved it in their labs. They claim that a fix for the issue would be included in the next update for all Windows versions. For the time being though, the company has included a temporary fix for the issue. Users will have to follow a couple of steps to mitigate the issue. The founding company of Windows reports the problem in detail at this link, and even adds a whole step by step guide to mitigate the issue that users face.
