Windows Store Program using high amounts of CPU

Has anyone encountered the WSAPPX (Windows Store Program) where it takes up high amounts of CPU usage?  What did you do to stop or reduce the issue?

I haven't seen this on my machine but I also don't use the Store at all. If you really don't require the Store for Windows Apps you could remove it typing
 Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage 

Open in new window

in a powershell. Could be that you need to be admin. You can reinstall it any time as shown here How to restore Windows Store in Windows 10 after removing it with PowerShell. I guess you could also disable the Windows Store Service.

Thank you Florian for the information, but this has been tried and didn't not resolve the issue.  So far it's happened on two machines that were right out of the box.

The issue seems to have resolved itself for the time being after re-imaging the computer.  It only happened on two out of the box machines, but enough to be weird activity.  It was using about 30% of CPU alone at a time.
