CPU Far too high for what I'm doing.

Specs are

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600k CPU @ 3.60GHz GeForce GTX1080 6GB 16 GB RAM

I tried to play Warframe, and it struggles to even get past the login screen, and I cant even move when I do actually get into game, this thing even struggles to run Dont Starve.

Im not that tech savvy but is this just a god awful Pc? Or is there something wrong with it?

It should blitz warframe.

try running a virus and malware scan. look in taskmanager to see what is using memory and cpu.

Its brand new, and I've had the problem since I turned it on, well before I downloaded anything. Since I kept my steam games backed up on a separate harddrive. When I'm not playing anything it's at 5% CPU usage, soon as I open a take it goes right to 100% and sits there
