Illustrator 2020 run 100% CPU usage with no file opened. I just started the program and it immediately slow down my PC. Help!
Sorry to hear about your experience. Please make sure you have Adobe Illustrator & Windows updated to the latest version.
You may also try resetting preferences once. Please follow instructions below to do that:
**Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. This way all your old settings will be saved in .old folders and Illustrator will recreate new folders with default settings.
Let us know if it helps.
I have illustrator 2021 (v 25.0.1). Windows updated to 20H2 (19042.630)
30 minutes ago I had Windows 10 version 1909 (OS Build 18363.1198).
I faced this issue yesterday too! Never faced this trouble in Illustrator 2021.
No files open. Laptop restarted few minutes back. No other major memory intensive software running. CPU usage shot up to 100%. Massive heating of CPU. Resetting the preferences doesn't solve the issue.
Sorry to hear about this. Please try creating a new user account(https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-a-local-user-or-administrator-account-in-windows-...) on your machine & try working on the app there. Let us know if you see similar behavior there. Looking forward to your response.
Ditto same issue. Still a high CPU usage on another user account.

Same. Coresync closure through task manager helps.
So now this is how we work with Illustrator from now onwards? Close coresync everytime we launch illustrator? Is there no method to permanently close it?
Deleted AIRobin folder.
