High Background CPU Usage

At random intervals when I'm idling, I'll notice my fans seem to be running high for just browsing the web or simply browsing my desktop. So I check task manager, and Cortex is at the top of the list using about 10-20 percent of my CPU. I end up killing it and restarting Cortex; however, it can happen again during the same instance of me using my PC.
