State Repository Service High CPU Usage Fix
Jan 24, 2018

I ran into an issue re-installing Windows 10 on my main workstation. Immediately after a fresh install, the ‘Service Host: State Repository Service’ would flare up CPU usage.

This apparently has happened to many users, and the main site with “fixes” was this site. It offered 3 solutions, all of which did not work. Re-installing built-in apps, repairing Edge, or any combination of stopping/restarting the service did not fix the issue.

The only fix that actually worked, to my disbelief, was re-installing Windows 10 with the ethernet cable unplugged.

I have no idea why it worked, but it’s the only thing that did.
