MacBook Pro severely overheating due to CPU usage.

  • Since downloading the browser my laptop began to overheat immediately on startup to the point where I couldn't touch the laptop it was so hot. looking at CPU usage 'Spotify helper (renderer)' was taking up 99.62%. I deleted the main Spotify application off my laptop but the problem still persisted. The only way I was able to fix the problem was by completely deleting Opera GX off the laptop as it still overheated with the browser closed. I assume the problem relates to the music player sidebar function. would be grateful if anyone had a fix for this issue.

    I'm running on MacOS Catalina 10.15.6 using a 2020 Macbook pro.
