Epic Games launcher and Fortnite make my computer really slow and I don’t understand it. Anyone know why? ?

I have a Radeon 590, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a newer intel i5 (7600k I think). The game and launcher do not even make a dent in my memory or cpu usage, but it tanks my performance so badly. Chrome doesn’t respond and everything breaks. 

I’ve had steam installed for years with no problem. I could have games like hoi4 or rust open and still open a few chrome tabs and mess about with my files. 

Why is epic games just about as demanding as steam, but makes my computer unusable?

    I know my Epic Games Launcher was having problems and I had to do a manual update to get the latest version installed and things started working again.

    the problems I was having was with the launcher trying to update itself.
