CPU spiking in perfect oscillation causing computer freeze every 3 seconds

I have an HP Pavilion 15 Notebook running Windows 10 Home OS 10.0.17134 Build 17134.  AMD A6-5200 with Radeon HD Graphics 2000 MHz, 4 cores, 4 logical processors with 12G RAM.  I was updating my drivers using Driver Easy.  After I finished I noticed everything on my screen paused for about 1 second every 3 seconds (mouse movements, video, applications).  I looked at my CPU under the task manager and there is a perfect oscillation of the CPU from 2% to 22% even when I have nothing running.  Turning the WIFI off, being in airplane mode, rebooting (including after removing the battery) all have no affect on it.  I don't KNOW that it had to do with my driver updates, it could be coincidental.  But I have no idea how to go back to the previous driver to find out.  Any help would be appreciated.
