I keep getting system_server is over loading the CPU

I get this error multiple times a day. Clicking on "close app" just re-starts the phone. I have cleared my cache, updated everything I could, started in safe all seems to be happening after the last update. Most of the time I am not even "using" the phone, it's just sitting there.

When you said you cleared the cache was it from settings-storage or was it from the recovery mode?

I'm sorry that is happening. I know that would drive me crazy but there are easy ways to fix this. According to Samsung, it is a 3rd party app that is causing the error message about the CPU (Central Processing Unit). They recommend that you put your phone in Safe Mode for a 24 hours. When the issue clears up, you will need to find out which 3rd party app is causing the error. You will want to slowly add the closed apps back on and when the error message returns, that will be the app you want to delete.
