Sounds like you've got a dog slow CPU that's thrashing when building thumbnails. Luckily, you can disable thumbnails. If you post which OS you're using, we can tell you how.
Very high CPU usage
My OS cannot dect my CPU core
Low CPU usage but slow Performance
Cpu dual core usage, should they be equal?
Limit usage of 1 core?

I would expect it's because you have a single core cpu. If you update your computer with a dual core it should cap at 50% I would think.

Ctrl+Alt+Delete --> Resource Manager --> Performance --> Resource Monitor
Please take a screenshot of your resource monitor and post it.
This will give us an idea of what service is causing the massive amount of cpu resource.
