CPU Spike but I don't see the process responsible

Q: CPU Spike but I don't see the process responsible

Hello,

I've had a number of issues the past two weeks and my most recent one is CPU spiking. At first it seemed to be Firefox because it was floating from 80 - 90 and using almost 100%. When I closed and reopened its stopped, but I then I had random spikes from 30 - 100, but cannot figure out what the cause is; even after 20 minutes of watching the processes. Any know what that might be?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: CPU Spike but I don't see the process responsible

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,

i have some trouble on my machine with Windows 8.1 (non pro version) - let's call it "server". I just bought new antivirus program with firewall (BitDefender Total Security 2017). On "server" side i have few shares with WebDAV protocol
(on SSL). With firewall off i can easy connect via SSL and map network drives via WebDAV protocol on clients machines. Problem occurs when i turn on firewall from BitDefender. Then i can't connect. So i need to create rule that will pass WebDAV traffic. And
here is a problem - BitDefender software can create rules only for specific *.exe file. I talked with BitdDefender staff about this problem for few weeks for now, but they solve (for now, only 1!) doesn't work and they told me that in that AV i can't open
port for non *.exe file... 

So this is my question - which file (specific exe, application) in Windows 8.1 x64 non pro are responsible for webdav communication on SSL, and where i can find it (path)?  I need to add firewall this exe file with 443 port to work ... I will be very
grateful for any answers ... :)

Since about last week I've noticed a spike in the number of processes my computer does from the start at boot-up. I'm running an Intel Core 2 Duo with an integrated graphics card, 2 gigs of ram, 250 gb hdd, and soundblaster live sound card. At that same time I noticed a great decrease in my internet connection speed from about 150 kbps to 10 when downloading! (I'm using Verizon Online DSL)

So I called Verizon up and they told my the source of my frustratingly horrid connection speed was the number of processes my computer was doing at boot (he had me do the whole ctr+alt+delete processes tab deal) He literally laughed when I told him the total number of processes was 70. He told me it was ad and spyware. So I ran a few scans with norton, aol ssc, spybot, etc and they turned up nothing just as they did the day before. But my processes remain steady at 70 and I can never remember them being this high - perhaps 30 or 40.

So I was just wondering, is this normal especially just from boot-up? I don't have any programs other than the essentials that boot when the comp does just stuff like issch.exe and dllhost.exe. And personally, I don't feel like messing with those considering they are located in the SYSTEM folder. So does anyone have any answers on what could've caused this spike and how I can fix it? Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello....

...Perhaps you are copying a 14 GIG file (not actually applicable) ....more or less.... within/on the same hard drive. That will take some effort and time. What component is responsible for its speed in doing so.

My guess is the GHtz of the motherboard.

Somehow I do not think that I am getting any better.....ANY useful links would be greatly appreciated........

A:What Component Of The System Is Responsible.........

Since this sounds very much like a school type question. You also ask for links to support the answer so you can add them as resource when you answer this question.

I'll answer it this way. There are multiple factors that control the speed of file transfer. Processor speed is not the major factor. But I'll say this, one of the major factors that affects file transfer speed on a HDD is the quantity of HDD cache.

The rest you'll have to google. And you'll find a lot of information and some links you can honestly say you found on your own.

Part of our strategy to do the right thing for our teenage offspring is to try and limit the amount of time they spend glued to the computer screen playing online games etc. We've tried parental management functions in our router to put time limits on IP leases but it turns out our isp has disabled those functions in the router. So I've tried setting up user accounts with password access. Waste of time because a 2 second search of Google finds 15 ways to circumvent account passwords. I know there must be a way to lock it down so the devious little blighters can't discover the passwords. I also want to know how to block access to a certain IP address so they can't log in to the router and find or change the Wi-Fi password. Can somebody give me some pointers at all?

Firefox has been having sudden frequent crashes. Internet Explorer shuts down and gives me the message "runtime error." These crashes most often happen on the three main websites we use most frequently (Yahoo, Facebook, and a weather website). There is no warning when the crashes happen.

I've tried all the Firefox crash troubleshooting suggestions, with no satisfactory results. I regularly run scans with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware Free, and AVG Free. AVG does pick up something called STDRT.EXE whenever I run a Super Mario game that we downloaded. AVG gives me the option of sending to virus vault, or "allowing". I've done both. I'm fairly sure that STDRT.EXE is not the culprit, since we've been playing Mario for a couple months, and the crashes have just happened in the last couple days. I'm no expert of course, which is why I'm here for help. Since the crashes started happening, I have dumped the Mario game onto a cd and uninstalled it from the computer.

I've also tried to do a system restore to a few dates previous to when this problem started, but it says "unable to restore" or something of that nature.....

Windows are also very slow in opening.

When Firefox crashes, up comes Mozilla crash reporter which gives me the option of restarting Firefox or quitting. If I choose to restart then restore session, it brings me to the page that just crashed when I clicked on a link. If I click on the link it will crash again.

On the other hand, sometimes we can browse for quite some time before a crash happens. Very confusing

Well, this is the first time that I have had to post here despite the numerous virus and malware infections I have had to deal with. For the first time the combination of CA AntiVirus and MalwareBytes has failed to clear a problem. CA Antivirus reports an infection of Vundo.CEH in a file "C:\Windows\system32\cyzystno.dll", and I cannot get this file deleted. CA-AV cannot quarintine the file, MWB cannot deal with it, Killbox cannot touch it (Rename function over-ridden by a system process), etc. There are no other viruses detected by the antivirus scan. I come waving my white flag and posting my log file. I consider myself an expert PC user, programmer and system builder, but I confess I am beat.

So here is a weird problem, that I probably caused myself. While I had a bluescreen problem I googled several things and tried possible solutions, that was a month ago, so I don't know exactly what I did, and I just started using this computer again.

I think I disabled sideshow or sideshow gadgets. Now, I can't install my Logitech G15 Keyboard anymore (Blue backlight version). It says installed but the program is not on the harddrive and the functionality of the keyboards LCD and media keys is not given. I can use the volume wheel but not play/pause, skip, stop etc. The display also shows no information, just the logitech logo like it does when its not installed. I think I uninstalled the driver/gamepanel software when it gave an error about sideshow. I already tried reenabling it, but that does nothing.

Windows also says a USB driver is not installed, like for the port it seems. Other USB things work fine.

The weird thing is that it doesn't even install the program, it is not in the folder on the HDD, and the install wizard completes in like one second.
Already tried downloading different versions of it, but no luck.

Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

So how do I get it working again? What could be the thing causing this? Thankful for everyone trying to help
 

A:Sideshow gadgets responsible for not installing G15 software?

Because your running the keyboard through a USB port it's power consumption is controlled by the CPU. When you plug in the keyboard to the computer it should send a report to the CPU telling it how much power it consumes (max). The controller chip then decides how much of the "pool" of power gets distributed to which device and how much (per cycle).
Rant Simply put in another way - lets say your mother\father sent you out to get a bucket of water every day from the water hole. This hole every day fills up to exactly six litres, you ask the water controller this is my bucket it holds exactly five litres of water may I have this much water please? It would reply yes, but the water controller knows it has others wanting to share the remaining litre so your request gets queued, you still get your five litres per day just not all in one refill.
So what be happening is that there are too many devices trying to consume too much of a single resource. Depending what else you may be using your USB ports for maybe try this drivercleanup thread#post875300 by @LookinAround

Hello,

Now im sure it has something to do with a disabled service, but i cant find which one responsible for the driver management.

I have 3 programs that stopped working, they will not load up, and I believe that The latest Windows updates are responsible. These programs are Inworldz Beta Viewer, Imprudence Viewer, and Second Life Viewer. They have always worked fine for me until Wednesday when suddenly none of them would load up. The next day, Windows 7 didn't want to load up. I had to restart the computer a couple of times before it did.

I have tried system restore, but it fails every time. I tired sfc/scannow command, but it doesn't find anything. Avast antivirus doesn't find any threats, although it finds some "warnings" that it won't seem to do anything about. I can upload an image of those warnings if it would help. Malewarebits doesn't find anything.

The only thing that has changed on my computer that I'm aware of since Wednesday, when Inworldz was working, was Windows installed some updates. So I'm guessing that caused the problems.

I have been advised elsewhere that I should do a Windows 7 Repair, but the process sounds confusing as heck. A complete clean reinstall of Windows 7 sounds easier. But, regardless, if the problem was caused by Windows updates, wouldn't the problem just return when Windows updates itself again after I've done all of that? That's a lot of work only to have the problem return.

I noticed that these 3 programs have log folders. They might keep crash files if someone can make sense of them. I might be able to upload the log files if th... Read more

A:3 programs stopped working, I think Windows updates are responsible

I've replied in your other thread as well. You might try System Restore in Safe Mode, and see if that will work (SR has never been reliable for me)

Safe Mode

You might hold off on the Repair Install, but it is pretty straight forward. If you can Clean Install, you can do a Repair Install

Repair Install

IF it was caused by Windows Updates, the System Restore may be your easiest fix, if you can get it to work.

How can I determine exactly what firewall rule is blocking particular data?
I have an application that gets all the way through opening an FTP connection and logging onto the FTP server, but then stalls on mput (the actual upload command), leaving a zero-byte file on the FTP server. The log reveals that the FW is blocking port 20
(the FTP data port) even though it is not blocking port 21 (the command port). That explains why it stalls only when it gets to the actual file upload. Here is a sample DROP line from the log:
 2016-03-24 22:19:06 DROP TCP [FTP server address] [Workstation address] 20 49432 60 S 2753606402 0 29200 - - - RECEIVE
I added an explicit TCP Allow rule for remote port 20, and this allowed the process to complete the upload correctly. But then I disabled it for further testing and then re-enabled it--and now the process is again stalling on the FTP data transfer.
I cannot understand is why this process is not blocked on other stations not having explicit port 20 rules. But it seems that it would be most useful to somehow trace all of this to what (rule), explicitly, is blocking port 20 on this workstation and/or
allowing it on other workstations.

OK, I see there are similar posts but not sure if my issue matches those exactly.  Appreciate your help if you can.   Cat has walked across keyboard .... as you can see I can type and use my fingers to move on and around screen but my touchpad won't work at all.  All keys on the keyboard are working.   I've tried looking in the mouse/touchpad settings but not finding anything that seems to match suggestions.   What should I do? Thanks in advance.Jo

Hello,

This is my first time on your forums. I have tried everything, but my DIY has reached its wit's end. I am running a Windows XP (using Mozilla Firefox as my browers) system with a wireless DSL connection. I have been plagued by issues and I am left unable connect to the internet while still had an IP address . . . When I logged into Windows, I got a dialog box warning that mmwnd.exe was unable to load. I searched online for solutions and was lead to the spyware removal software PREVX 1.

I installed this and it found several infections, which it was able to isolate and remove. However, I was still unable to connect. Occasionally PREVX would trip on a piece of malware it called TOTOUR.EXE, upon finding this and isolating it (although it never showed in up as isolated) I was able to connect to the internet. However, when PREVX was unable to locate it on a restart I still had no connection.

So I again searched online, and saw that i should remove TOTOUR.EXE with killbox. This didn't work, apparently.

Further searching lead me to another virus checker called Superantispyware Pro. I installed this and ran it. It found, around 200 of pieces of malware/tracking cookies on my machine that it removed without incident. (To be extra sure, I ran it in safe mode too. It found a couple of hundred more(!). I scanned another time, and I actually think that it's finding the same pieces of malware but unable to remove them.

So this is where I am at. I have no internet... Read more

Important!! HijackThis and GMER are also affected so I CAN NOT include a HijackThis or GMER log with my post.

This morning everything seemed to be working fine, I left for a couple hours and when I came back a few things had gone screwy and I assumed that some virus had taken hold while I was gone so I went to scan and discovered that all my security programs were dead. They ran for a few seconds before they closed. Upon trying to open them again I get the message that Windows can not access the specified device, path or file.

This is affecting Spyware Terminator, MalwareBytes and HijackThis.

I have no idea what is causing the problem as the virus didn't make itself known like the others I've dealt with. Only clue that something is wrong is the different problems that arose (open windows losing focus (solved), Aero theme being deactivated (mostly solved), security being broken)

Searching hasn't produced anything useful so I'm hoping I can find some help here.

Hello,
My computer crashed less than a half hour ago. Just turned itself off. I was able to reboot and didn't lose anything. After some searching I discovered the source of the problem: US Tech Support Framework which is a partner company with My Clean PC which is a scam. I started to download My Clean PC months ago, but discovered before I finished that it was a scam and quickly aborted the download and deleted everything. Apparently, this US Tech Support Framework downloaded itself on my computer October 14th, long after the near run in with My Clean PC. And my computer didn't have any problems until today. Needless to say, I quickly ran my anti-malware program and anti-virus program, as well as deleted US Tech Support Framework. Then I began the task of thoroughly searching my computer to delete every single file, anything related to US Tech Support Framework. The last thing I found of it was in this folder: Config.msi. in OS [C:]. I deleted everything related to US Tech inside the folder, and then tried to delete the folder itself. By the way, the folder was created the same day that US Tech found its way on my computer. But I'm not able to delete the folder. I've tried everything. I've claimed ownership on the folder, made sure I had all the permissions. I am the administrator, but every time I try to delete I get an error message that says I require permission from the administrators to make changes to this folder.

First time poster long time lurker here…

I’d like to start out by saying thanks to all you nice people out there on the Tech Support Guy forums. I’ve found these pages to be an invaluable resource (particularly when an aborted installation of the bundled malware in Kazaa screwed up Winsock 32 and left me without TCP/IP functionality)…

I’ve done a couple of searches and can’t find any topics that cover the problem I am currently trying to deal with. My IE default search page appears to have been set to one of those sites that redirects to Yahoo! (or whatever) after creating a ‘hidden’ secondary browser instance for serving pop-up ads. I’m guessing that this happened due to the ActiveX controls defaulting back to “leave as many security holes open as possible” when I last upgraded IE. I rarely use the default search page, so this could have gone unnoticed for months.

Anyway, when I click the search button on the IE toolbar I get the regular search sidebar - but with the aforementioned secondary browser instance running in the background. I have Norton Anti-Virus installed, and an alert appears onscreen telling me that IEXPLORE.EXE is attempting to call on the ‘RegWrite’ method (which I’m guessing writes a value to / somehow changes the Registry) as soon as the sidebar has loaded. I have not allowed the script to run, because I don’t particularly want anything else to be changed around on me.

Here’s where it gets weird: I took a look with RegEdit, and as f... Read more

I am wondering if anybody can tell me which plug-in is responsible for loading Excel documents into the Internet Explorer browser when I click on an Excel document hyper-link?

I have been able to find instructions on how to stop Internet Explorer (or other browsers) from opening Excel documents but this information is of no use to me.

My challenge relates directly to an issue that I am experiencing with SharePoint Online as described below:

any ideas on how 2 fix this

A:spike lag in dod

There are about a million things that can cause lag spikes so we will need to narrow it down some.

Can you tell if the problem is related to your PC slowing down or your internet connection? Does it lag during other games or while watching movies? Are you close enough to your router to hook up a wire? That way you can be sure your wireless connection isn't dropping packets and causing the lag spikes.

Did anything change prior to this problem?

Alright so I was googling my problem, to see if any similar things have happened to other people and I came across a thread on this site, however it was dead and the problem was not resolved so I guess I'll have to ask myself.

I have windows 7 HP computer (Horrible I know)

Anyway, it's not a fabulous laptop, it's good enough to run WoW at 30FPS, however I found out that I had a virus so we decided, hey the laptop is due for a format, haven't done that since I bought it, so I got an external hard drive and formatted it. It took us 4 days to get it back up and running because for some reason when we formatted it, it just wasn't accepting anything. Anyway that's not totally important.

The main issue I'm having is that, even when my computer was virus infested, I still had the ability to game with ease, but now my CPU spikes up randomly, EVEN when nothing is open, my boyfriend has checked for me, it's nothing running in the background. It just spikes up....... So now for example when I open WoW it will run anywhere from 30-60 FPS at first and the CPU will spike up and bring it down to 1FPS. It sometimes happens when I'm trying to watch a movie, or even simply on google or hell even my desktop screen.

Another point, my computer isn't heating up. It's not hot or anything, and the fan isn't overworking either.

Any tips? I'd love to not have to spend money on a new laptop right now, so anything would be awesome.

Process Lasso shows that when i have these spikes, my CPU usuage goings to 90-100% and my RAM is apparently 100% in use too. However...during these spikes sometimes the only thing open is my media player!?

Any help would be awesome, thanks!
 

A:CPU spike

How old is your HP Envy 17. If still under warranty, I would talk to HP before doing any thing that would void that warranty. It is likely you should not be seeing this problem so frequently. Treat all outside programs as suspect, unless they are very highly rated for laptops.
See what HP thinks is normal... or a tech at an HP dealer where you purchased it.
