    I7 7700K - CPU % spikes to 99-100 when opening up task manager


      after opening up task manager my CPU spikes to 99-100% utilization. Also when opening a program or application, my CPU core temps spike to from ~ 30-32 Celsius to ~ 77-81 Celsius. Is this normal?  Not sure why these spikes occurs. I also notice lag when I open a new program when I'm already running something ie watching a video on youtube and then opening another browser or playing a game and then opening the browser. Any ideas? I have not OC my PC.
