Today I ran Factorio and it has updated to the latest version 0.17.64 and there have been some very positive changes.

So a very positive improvement. There have been further updates for the MSI motherboard, a Microsoft USB driver and NVidia since our last exchange. I'll have to put it down to that.
I spoke too soon,
Everything worked okay for a couple of short sessions, but the problem is back and just as bad
Yes, I'm keeping my drivers up to date. Factorio version 0.17.66.
Started the game this morning and navigated the menus only, CPU cores 0, 1 & 2 are locked at 100% while the game is in focus at the main menu.
Loading and playing a game is back to being very laggy, jarring hitches, FPS fluctuating between 48 & 60 just by running around, laggy mouse pointer that doesn't follow movement properly. Exiting the saved game and going back to the menu and the 3 CPU cores are still locked at 100%
I quit the game, started again and recorded a sleepy session - during this I have not loaded a save or started a new game, all I've done is started Factorio and navigating menus without making any changes or selecting anything.
Attached is tge sleepy file and sleepy CSV export. I had to add a 3 letter extension to the sleepy file for it to be accepted as an attachment, please remove .log from its file name.
No fun at all.
I'm really hoping you can find something in the sleepy file
EDIT since then I reloaded a game, tried turning all the graphic settings down in game and this changes absolutely nothing to help. The save is very early game with only 2 assemblers for gears and red science and 4 steam engines.
