Linux Mint 19 High CPU Usage On 1 Core of 4 FIX POSTED.

I have a clean new install of Linux Mint 19, only 1 of 4 cores (i7 with 4 additional threads) runs at 92+% all the time (note: only 1 core the rest seem fine). I upgraded the kernel to the latest but still the same single core at 92+% and Cinnamon at 3 to 10%+ all other cores at normal 1-3% at idle....
