Process "System" using 100% CPU0?

Hi, my laptop has got this process "System" with description "NT Kernel & System" taking up one single core (usually CPU0 occasionally CPU2) 100%. It got my attention when I started feeling the keyboard got warmer than usual. I installed all the latest drivers recently, not sure if that could be the cause? If so, how can I check which driver might be bad? I read someone suggested to take a look at my USB driver.

Edit: Even when I boot into Safe Mode, the CPU0 is still full at 100%, with "System" at the top of the list.

Id put my bet on one of the drivers you installed recently.
