Q: Solved: High Ram usage and High Fluctuating Cpu usage?

Hi, I am a newbie at computers so please instruct me on what to do if I am missing any information or anything. Thank you!
Basicly, I have been experiencing high RAM usage and fluctuating computer usage for a while now, and I have no idea what to do. Please help! Pic below shows what's on the Task Manager while only opening one tab on chrome and no other applications.

Preferred Solution: Solved: High Ram usage and High Fluctuating Cpu usage?

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.)

- Windows Vista Home Basic - 32-bit
- Intel Celeron 420 Processor (1.6 GHz/ 512 KB L2 Cache/ 800 MHz FSB)
- 1512 MB RAM (DDR2)

I had issues with a BSOD recently and now it doesn't crash, but hangs on a blue screen temporarily until starting:
BSOD - Report - Help Needed

I added some more RAM to the system. I've sinced checked the Task Manager - Resource Monitor, and the CPU usage is frequently showing 100%. The usage also fluctuates rapidly across a large value (between 10 - 100%). There are no other programs running other than Resource Monitor AFAIK - The computer is connected to the internet via LAN and I have a second computer that is connected wirelessly. I don't know if the second computer connection could make a difference?

The RAM is typically around 650MB usage (40%). The system is lagging a lot.

Why's the CPU so high and fluctuating, and how do I fix it? In the Resource Monitor what should I be looking at out of PID/Threads/CPU/Average CPU, to see if anything is abnormal?

Hello everyone, I've been having a very weird problem recently, in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage. Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game, or watching a stream, and my computer will run fine for a little while. But at random times, my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash. If it doesn't crash, sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down. Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory. It's actually happening right now. My computer is going very slow and it's using 6.22 GB memory out of 8. There are no big programs running right now, so I don't understand why it's being slow. I hope someone is able to help. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Update: I just tried to open chrome, and the computer froze completely. It would not unfreeze. After leaving it frozen for a minute or two, the screen went black. This is becoming very frustrating.

About a year ago, I noticed that my computer was running slow (both online and off) and that the explorer.exe process listed in the Windows Task Manager was usually running very high. Windows Explorer seemed to crash a lot as well. A few months ago, I attempted to install Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 on my computer and before the install completed a warning window popped up saying something like 'there is already another instance of Kaspersky running' (which was not the case since this was the first time I had ever attempted to install Kaspersky software) and the install failed. When I rebooted my computer, I got the blue screen of death for a few seconds and then Windows booted with a message saying that Windows had recovered from a serious problem. Since recovering from whatever happened after the failed Kaspersky install, my computer is slower than ever and the Task Manager still shows a high CPU usage even though the System Idle Process is high and there isn't any processes listed that are using much CPU time at all.

I just scanned my system with the latest updated versions of AdAware, Spybot S&D, SuperAntiSpyware, and Avira AntiVir. All of them found nothing. I then cleaned my computer with CCleaner and ran HijackThis.

This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted.

1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues.
2. I reformatted and everything was normal..but then after installing these few programs, the problem began again.

A:Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)

Hello. First off, having utorrent effectively craps you out on this forum since it has a bad rep. Suggest you remove it and come back, start a new thread. That said, if you're familiar with Task Manager, check the CPU percentage on the processes tab (click CPU column to sort). This may help pinpoint which app(s) are whack.

There is a serious issue with svchost.exe on my windows 7 computer. My HP Touchsmart 300-1025 has windows 7 64bit installed and svchost is slowing down the computer and using very high cpu and memory usage. It is not a virus or malware. I know the computer is not infected because one the computer has webroot and two if it was a virus or malware I would not be able to use the computer at all. So it has to be an issue with windows 7 64bit itself. Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about and proof.

Hi,

I just bought my brand new laptop and have loaded Vista Ultimate 32bit onto it for about 5 days. I noticed something unusual about Vista's CPU usage while idle in the task manager as well as the Resource monitor.

I have attached two pictures to show my problem. Notice that my CPU usage is always at about 40-60% on both of my cores. However, the average CPU usage per process shows that it should actually occupy about 15% to at most 20% (by adding up all the highest average CPU for processes in the first picture). The second picture I attached shows the current CPU usage sorted by max usage, and again it does not add up to 41%!

Although at 40-60% usage, I do not notice any major performance impacts, as both cores are not loaded to the max. However, I do notice Vista chewing up more battery than needed when I have my laptop running off batteries. Because the max frequency for the processor would always need to be raised to around 60% even when idle (instead of say... 10-20%).

I have searched online for various problems relating to high CPU usage, and most of the responses are about tracing down which process is the culprit. Well, this is where I'm stumped because it all does not add up! According to the process view, everything is normal but my system resources are still get constantly chewed up by something invisible it seems.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this point!
 

A:Vista Ultimate 32: high CPU usage does not correspond with process usage

Posting two more image to show this problem from the task manager...

Notice that the system idle process is 84, and yet CPU usage is 42? I always thought that:
CPU usage + idle process = 100?

Perhaps things are done differently with dual core processors? This is my first dual core so I'm not sure. The second image shows how both my cores are being used roughly equally, at around 50%.

My friend, who has a very low income was given a Dell Optiplex GX240 running Win2K Pro. 512MB RAM

Ad-Aware, AVG spyware and AV free versions, Trend Micro House Call, Spybot

I checked the task manager, and has constant 100% CPU usage, avg memory usage

Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this!

I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine. However, he constantly had high CPU and RAM usage (Even though no programs were obviously taking it all up in his task manager) and it was making his computer sluggish and slow. Everything was freezing and hanging and it was a nightmare.

I spent a day looking all over the net to find out the problem, but could not fix it at all, no matter what the hell I tried. So he reverted back to Windows XP. (A nice waste of money on Windows 7.) His Windows XP now runs smoothly and is all as it was.

Suddenly today, after my brother connected to my Windows 7 homegroup (or workgroup rather) through his Windows XP machine, my computer got the EXACT same problem as he had ages ago! I have been browsing Google all day downloading s**t, changing things in my computer, trying EVERY possible fix that people have suggested and that sound legit. Nothing works!

So now all of a sudden, my computer is sluggish, games are jumpy and jittery, video rendering times are slooooooow.

Here is a picture of my resource monitor:
You can see the physical memory usage being at 45%. I've ordered the memory usage of each service in highest to lowest.

A:Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!

I can tell you what is probably causing your problems. AVG.
When you are looking at memory, do not sort by Working set, sort by Hard faults.
Hard faults is what causes things to slow down. Plus you have plenty of memory not to worry about usage.

Hi,
I have a i7 3770k at 3.9 ghz, so stock with turbo boost.
I tried oc'ing to 4.5 ghz, didnt fix the problem.
Basically, in some games i get high cpu usage and at the same time low gpu usage.
My system is i7 3770k, gtx1070, 16 gb ddr3 ram, corsair hx850i psu.
In witcher 3 novigrad, which is cpu heavy, i sometimes get gpu usage at like 70% which causes stutter, at the same time cpu usage is around 85%.
When i leave town i get 95-99% gpu usage again and my cpu usage drops.
Dying light same, if cpu usage is high my gpu usage drops.
Battlefield 1 is normally fine in 95-99% gpu usage, except st quentin, but others reported this too.
What can this be? My cpu shouldnt be bottlenecking. Like i said i trid overclocking, didn't help.
nvcp is set to prefer maximum performance and i'm playing at 1440p 144hz.

Greetings,
 
I formatted my computer, and after installing windows 7 again, my physical memory in task manager is very high, and cpu keeps jumping up and down.
 
I looked at the processes tab, but noticed absolutely nothing taking abnormal memory (private working set.) Then moved on to performance tab> resource monitor, and found svchost (I think it was netsvcs in parenthesis,) hogging all the memory. After ending the process, I still have had high memory usage, and surprisingly, do not see a process anywhere in task manager with high numbers next to it, so I have no idea what's happening.
 
I have noticed that my windows 7 folder keeps increasing in size, currently about 26 gigs, and a helper told me that it's normal because the updates in windows 7 have a different compression method than windows 8 and after, however when I had previously installed windows 7, fully updated... my folder size was normal, so I assume it can be done?
 
I originally posted in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section, however I did not find malware on my computer, so unless it's very new malware, I am certain windows 7 is causing this problem.
 
For antivirus, I am currently using a free trial of Norton.
 
Advice?
 
P.S. This is probably better for the hardware section, but can constant high physical memory, and cpu usage ruin my hardware? I am avoiding using things that take up high cpu and memory right now, and it's currently about 1.2 g... Read more

Hi,
 
Just yesterday I realized that my computer was acting super slowly and I even received a blue screen of death out of nowhere. Upon checking my processes list,I found many suspicious processes that continued to multiply when I tried to end them. These included: PresentationHost.exe, msdtc.exe, dllhost.exe, prevhost.exe, cmd.exe, msiexec.exe, conhost.exe, and even a notepad.exe that seems to be invisible. A malware is most likely behind this, and is causing my computer to perform very slowly and be almost unusable, I have managed to run FRST, but Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not even opening for me. In addition, this multiplying issue seems to only occur when I am connected to the internet. I would highly appreciate some help!

Hi all, hope you can help.

Every so often, when listening to online radio streams/playing games etc my computer just goes crazy. I get a lot of hard drive 'chatter' and lots of fan noise and everything slows to a crawl. My music will start jumping and skipping and there is a long delay between me clicking the mouse and the action happening. It happens when no other programs (for example, my AV/AS) are due to scan. When I look at my Task Manager the two biggest eaters of memory usage are fm.exe (game, it normally eats a load but makes no substantial difference to the comp speed) and ekrn.exe (something to do with my AV, not quite sure what it actually does though)

I am running Windows MCE SP3 and am using NOD32 anti-virus and Sunbelt CounterSpy anti-spyware. The definitions on both are updated daily and both scan daily. I have also defragged the comp and do so weekly. The other programs I use are CCleaner and Glary Utilities, both fairly regularly to clean up my comp when I was working as an internet researcher, but less often now.

I do not get any error messages/BSOD's or actual freezes. Everything just slows right down. Could I have picked up a form of malware/virus that my AV/AS isn't picking up? Could one of my previous spring cleans have been too aggressive? Or is it simply too much load for my comp (2 year old Dell)? It is 3MHz, 1G RAM, kinda your bog standard media comp from 2007.

A:Computer is apparently being scanned - high CPU usage/memory usage

I receive the same alert from AVG whether I am using IExplorer, Firefox or Chrome. Also, in the task manager the CPU usage is sometimes almost 50% and it's always the internet browser I have open. Computer seems a bit sluggish. I have also been having trouble viewing videos on surfline.com (but not anywhere else). I am more than happy to delete any programs you think would be adding to the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been having this problem now for an year or so now. It started when I upgraded my connection from 8/1 ADSL to 100/10 cable (so the problem wasn't noticeable even if it was there before) and when I download at high speeds (in steam, for example) my CPU usage jumps to 80% and higher, and my pc starts to stutter (mouse, audio, everything).

What makes it harder for me to track down, is that it does not happen right after I start my PC. For a good 1 to 3 hours after starting my PC I can download fine at full speed (~12MB/s) without any problems. But after my PC has been on for few hours the problem starts. When ever I download above 5MB/s (sometimes even above 3MB/s) my CPU usage goes to around 75% to 99% and everything stutters, mouse, video, audio etc.

Using Task Manager, it shows that NT Kernel & System is what is using the CPU.
Process Explorer shows Hardware Interrupts and DPCs as the cause for high CPU usage.

I've tried updating my drivers (mouse, keyboard audio, video and network drivers are up to date), but I cannot seem to find USB or hard drive drivers in case it's those that are causing it. If it's even drivers causing it.

I'm using AVG Free and ZoneAlarm.
My HDD is 7200rpm so it should be able to handle 100mb cable connection. (not 100% sure about that)

I've also noticed that my windows has set pagefile at 8190MB, even though it says 12285MB is recommended. But that might not have anything to do with the problem.

A:Stuttering and high CPU usage while downloading at high speeds

Hey, some thoughts,

- Is your BIOS up-to-date?
- Are you sure AVG Free and ZoneAlarm work nicely together? They used to be fine couple years ago when they were AV/Firewall but recent versions tend to cross-over. Try uninstalling one? I can't say why would the problem start after sometime though.
- Are you using Ethernet or wireless?
- How is your power options set in control panel? Try High Performance if it is not set that way already.

What do I do to take care of this.? Norton anti- virus keeps giving me a Performance alert, & I simply don't know what to do...Can you help me.?I'm stumped.!!!!
 

A:High Memory Usage, & High CPU usage

The thing to do is use Task Manager ( right click on task bar at bottom of the screen, and choose Task Manager ). Then click on the Processes tab, click on the CPU column header so it sorts the rows by cpu usage. So now you will see the processes that use a lot of cpu.

If you are using Vista, or Windows 7; pull down the View menu, choose 'select columns' and then checkmark 'command line'. Then each row will give the location of the program on the hard drive.

I have been having a big problem the last week with my computer. Everything is running incredibly slow. I opened the windows task manager, and it has shown very high CPU usage, often fluctuating between 80% and 100%, though sometimes staying between about 5-20%. The page file usage has been conistently high, the lowest being in the mid-600 kbs, while most often staying around 720 or 730 kbs. These patterns seem to be unaltered by the amount of programs I have running (the problem occurs even when there are absolutely no programs running) or whether I'm on the internet or not. I am very ignorant when it comes to computers, but I suspected it was some sort of spyware problem. However, after scanning with Norton 360, Spybot's Search and Destroy, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, and Microsoft Defender, only a few low-level threats showed up, and fixing them led to no improvement in my computer's performance. The slow functioning seems to be directly related to the times when the CPU usage is high.

My OS is Microsoft XP. My processor is 1.73 GHz. I have 504 MB of RAM. I will attach my HijackThis log below. I hope I haven't forgotten any necessary information, but I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'm becoming very frustrated.

Hi,
I have a i7 3770k at 3.9 ghz, so stock with turbo boost.
I tried oc'ing to 4.5 ghz, didnt fix the problem.
Basically, in some games i get high cpu usage and at the same time low gpu usage.
My system is i7 3770k, gtx1070, 16 gb ddr3 ram, corsair hx850i psu.
In witcher 3 novigrad, which is cpu heavy, i sometimes get gpu usage at like 70% which causes stutter, at the same time cpu usage is around 85%.
When i leave town i get 95-99% gpu usage again and my cpu usage drops.
Dying light same, if cpu usage is high my gpu usage drops.
Battlefield 1 is normally fine in 95-99% gpu usage, except st quentin, but others reported this too.
What can this be? My cpu shouldnt be bottlenecking. Like i said i trid overclocking, didn't help.

The following problem happens once/twice a day while playing Battlefield 4 (I've been spending most of these last days playing it) and started like last saturday (July 26). I'm playing Battlefield 4 (BF4) for 1 hour or so and everything is going just fine, but sometimes the game (image) starts to get really slow, losing fluidity and starts skipping, like stuttering (sorry I do not know if this is the correct english term for this phenomenon). When this starts to happen I alt+tab to the desktop, although it does take quite sometime (it gets slower than usual), and once I reach the desktop I open the Task Manager to see what is happening, this basically what I see (check images links at the end to better understand what is said next):
- RAM usage at 90% or more;
- I order the processes in a decreasing fashion and BF4 is at top but only consuming 1490MB or less of RAM;
- The rest of the processes consume less than 100MB each;
- I click on the Performance tab and see this >7GB of 7,9GB being consumed;
- I terminate the BF4 process to see what happens and the RAM goes down but still quite high ranging from 87-70% in the Processes tab, and in the Performance tab it goes down at 6,9-5,6GB of 7,9GB being consumed.

My computer gets extremely slow when left on for more than a day. This started happening a few months ago and I thought I could just deal with it but it's getting pretty bad. So after a day or two, whenever I experience heavy internet usage such as downloading anything or viewing sites with large images, my computer locks up with near 100% CPU usage and it becomes inoperable until the download stops. Streaming videos isn't as bad but there's still a noticable slow-down until it's finished streaming. Even downloading something small like Panda's activescan today caused my CPU usage to spike up to the mid 80's. I'm running a dual core so it shouldn't be a problem. Oddly it only seems to be affected by internet usage -- it hardly happens when I'm playing a game.

On an unrelated note (maybe?) I keep getting a pop-up from my taskbar saying a USB device is not recognized and is malfunctioning, but all of my USB connected hardware is working perfectly. It's been going on for a while, way before the main problem started happening. It's not a problem really, just very annoying when I see it pop up every 10 minutes. Could that be a hardware issue where the connection on the motherboard got loose?

Starting a week ago, my desktop has started to freeze or lockup randomly. I can not do anything as audio cuts and keyboard/mouse does not work until I manually restart the PC. The times in which the freezes happen are completely random. One day it'll take approximately 54 minutes before it happens, the next time will be hours.

I thought it might be a hardware issue regarding heat from research and experience. All the fans are working correctly. CPU, GPU, and PSU are not hot to the touch and temp readings are in the normal ranges from what I have looked up.

I don't have any specific programs open when the freeze occurs nor is my CPU or RAM usage above 50%.
I have reinstalled recent windows and driver updates, cleared out any new programs/files I have installed in the past month as well as using various anti-virus software programs.

Currently, I have not had a freeze in the past 24 hrs, however, my RAM usage is now at a constant 25%-35% with only Chrome open (this has never been like this). Even after reboots my RAM spikes to the same range while my CPU stays at 5%-15%.

Also currently, without RAM or CPU usage going any higher than 50%-60%, any programs such as Chrome, Discord, Steam, Task Manager will stop responding for various amounts of time but will never be slow in use.

I stopped various services under svchost that could have been causing some spikes but still no change.

Clean install of win8 pro on half of a laptop (other is XP).
Disk space is 24G, processor 1.6mh,1GB ram. 32 bit.
Task mgr reported CPU uasge of 10% until the addition of windows media centr pack. Now usage is
70 - 90%. Culprit is system interrupts which uses 60%. Suggestions?
 

A:Solved: CPU high % usage

Hmm I assume you meant 1.6GHz for your CPU right? You could try looking at the issue with http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx and see if it sheds more light onto the "culprit".

Also have you been using any new attached devices recently? USB flash disk, webcam, external hard drive?

I have a new Sony Vaio that is less than two months old. After this very short period my C drive is showing "132GB free of 665GB". This is just insane, I have no idea what is using up all of this disk space.

Any pointers on tracking down the culprit?

Recently I have started getting the BSOD message "Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error", and on top of this my CPU usage has been extremely high. My cpu usage was fine until a few days ago, and since then it has risen to 100%. I shutdown my firewall and anti-virus (I use Comodo Firewall and NOD32 AV which have been working great until now) to get it back down to normal (around 10%), but this leaves my computer unprotected. I recently got infected with some adware (which I should be able to get rid of with my virus scan), but the BSOD interupts my attempts to remove. I am thankful for any help I get.

(P.S. I hope I have all the info needed.)

Hello,

I am trying to solve an issue that has recently been occurring on my personal PC. On my PC I have been having issues with high memory usage by several programs that I can not seem to resolve. Usually the programs start small and get bigger, sometimes quickly such as the case with outlook and firefox often jumping from 10k to 60k in a matter of minutes and others slowly of the course of a few hours. I am a computer tech myself and the fact that i cant seem to fix my own computer has been driving me insane. Also any help with the trimming down of running process would be greatly appreciated.

The programs with the highest memory usage typically are: Outlook, Word, firefox 2.0.0.1, rtvscan, vzfw.exe, svchost.exe, yahoo widget engine (konfabulator.exe), ehrecsvr.exe, ehshell. exe.

These processes typically run over 20 mb and under 80 however as you will see in my taskmanager this seems to be a much farther reaching issue that does not always follow what is typical

I have run several antivirus and antispyware checks and have found only one thing. I found 180searchassistant/zango with webroot spysweeper. I am lead to believe this is a false positive however because it fails to clean it, the 180searchassistant removal tool fails to find it, ewido, spybot and windows defender fails to find it. My antivirus Symantec Coporate 10.1.4.4000 finds no viruses.

The high memory usage by the eh* programs may be explained by the fact that i recently hacked apart my MCE 2002 build an... Read more

A:[SOLVED] PF Usage Extremly High

Hi Terry901 !

Looks like a memory leak in the broadcom wireless network manager. See whether there's an update for your wireless drivers on the manufacturer's website. Go to Dell drivers support page, enter your service tag and install the latest wireless network drivers.

Sometimes the manufacturer replaces the default "wireless zero configuration" interface of windows XP by its own and sometimes that third party program creates issues. If there's no update on the manufacturer's website you can uninstall the third party program and install the wireless driver alone : download and extract the drivers in some folder on the drive (if it's a .exe file ask us for the proper instructions), uninstall the program related to your wireless controller using add/remove programs, restart and when the new hardware is detected point the installer manually to the location of the proper drivers.

I'm running a fully updated copy of Windows XP, and I've been having a problem playing HD on BBC iPlayer, which caused me to open up Task Manager to see what was going on with resources.

I found that resources were maxing out when playing HD movies, however, when I close everything down, other than Task Manager, I find that my CPU usage is showing as between 70 to 80% all of the time. Which I believe is the cause of my problems when running HD. I have replaced the video card with a 1 GB Sapphire HD5450, and as the CPU is a AMD Athlon 3200, I think the system should be able to cope with HD movies.

The same high CPU reading at rest shows in TM with Systems Tray in diagnostic mode.

I have run Trend Micro Housecall, etc, but no threats have been shown.

I've cleaned out the registry with Regseeker, but that hasn't made any difference either.

I've switched off AVG, Windows Firewall, and Windows auto update, none of which makes any difference to the high CPU reading at rest.

Although the CPU is an old model, it's not had that many hours of usage, and in every other way the system is running OK: no overheating, no closures or lock-ups.

The only other symptom is a very slight lag when opening up browsers, etc, but not to the extent that if affects using the computer; and the occasional sound of disk activity.

The most likely answer seems to be that there is something running on this computer that I don't know about, but if it's not malware, or a background appl... Read more

So last night, my ram usage was around 30 percent idle. I turn on my computer today and the usage is 80 percent! Can anyone help? If you need anymore information just ask.

A:[SOLVED] High RAM Usage while Idle

Hi,

What are your computer specifications? (RAM, CPU etc.) Is your computer slowing down when you use it? Go to the Task Manager-Processes, what tasks have the highest usage? Also what programs are you running?

Hello!
I am new to this forum. I hope i posted this in the correct section, if no i appologise.
Im in abit of a pickle that i cannot seem to figure out.
Long story short. My CPU when idle is normally around 5-10%. But lately Ive noticed it has been idling around 25-30%. Now i thought maybe its a Virus/Malware. So i updated Norton Anti-Virus, and Spybot Search and Destroy. And booted up in safe Mode, and ran both of them one after another with a system restart in between. They came up empty.

So i then figured that maybe there is a process running that is taking up space, and i dont have much running. I have included a Link for the Picture of my Processes below. I defraged my HDD, ran a registry cleaner, and still nothing. I even went so far as to reflash the BIOS for My MoBo.

Now i play alot of Games on this system, and ive noticed since i saw the High CPU, that ive been getting High CPU usage warnings from Norton more, and more.

So, now im not sure how to proceed from here. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
