    SOLVED.. The issue was resolved by uninstalling Eset NOD 32 antivirus for linux. Although linux does not need an AV app, This machine handles NTFS partitions visited by Windows so I run it to keep an eye on files and folders created by Windows.

    This morning after rolling back to Kernel: 4.8.14-200.fc24.x86_64 x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 6.2.1) the same high CPU usage is noted. I keep Chapeau Linux on two SSD drives, one for a backup. After switching drives and noting that the backup drive has Kernel: 4.8.14-200.fc24.x86_64 x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 6.2.1) the issue was NOT there, once booted the resource monitor was pretty much flatlined, all cores idling.

    After the latest update applied, CPU usage was unacceptably high, going back to Kernel: 4.8.14-200.fc24.x86_64 x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 6.2.1) did not cure the problem.

    Thanks Vince, but no luck. It hangs at [OK] Started Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service and if I leave it, it cycles between that and [OK] Started dnf makecache. ON shutdown it hangs at [OK] Stopped D-Bus System Message Bus.

    I did follow your instructions to get to the console and ran this command to recover my old desktop with (I assume) the Nouveau driver: yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nvidia* nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig

    With the latest update, Flash plugin is now v24.0 r0 and so far I can get to the TWC live stream but only get a black screen. I will work on it and see if I can fix it.

    Try Chapeau Linux with the Cinnamon desktop, closest thing to Mint I can think of. I run it as my desktop of choice.
