Preferred Solution: why does my cpu usage always show 50% or higher on windows10

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 there,
 
Hope you guys can help with this. Win 7 Ultimate x64. After booting up and working for a while, the keyboard response will slow down (i.e. you type characters and they don't show up on the screen for up to 30 seconds). Same issue with mouse. So I started monitoring the system and discovered that this happens when explorer.exe uses a lot of CPU resources.
 
On boot-up, explorer.exe is using about 0.5% of CPU. But as time goes on and I keep working, it starts to use more and more CPU. Eventually, it can get up to 35-40%. When it gets high, that is when the keyboard/mouse response slows down. So I tried this: I opened a Notepad window while monitoring explorer.exe CPU usage. Then I started typing random characters very fast. When I do this, explorer CPU usage drops to less than 1% and the keyboard response returns to normal. However, when I stop typing, the explorer.exe CPU usage immediately starts to go up again. Eventually, it becomes unmaneagable, and I have to reboot. I tried ending and restarting explorer.exe but it made no difference.
 
It would appear that explorer.exe is running some kind of background task which is consuming much more resources than it should.
 
You Bleeper guys have any good ideas?
 
Thanks a bunch,
Dave

A:Explorer.exe spirals to higher and higher CPU usage

You could try a claen boot to isolate the problem,have you run the disk checker,sometimes fixes this issue.

I wanna say it was about a year ago when I noticed that my RAM usage was suddenly way high compared to what it had always been. That said I know there is alot on my laptop but I never really know what I should get rid of. And really until this seemingly sudden event, I had very few problems despite the extra charble. I've spent some time trying to figure out what the problem is with little luck but there was 1 time that it appeared I found that there was some type of back up constantly running backing up to another drive/petition but I couldn't ever find what or where is was. I'm posting a screen shot of the list of processes although it doesn't seem to be displaying them all. Hopefully I will be able to check back every night to keep updated on the support but life with kids doesn't always allow that. Thank you

I just installed the latest seven release...

I also installed the following softwares: Chrome browser and VLC.

I opened a movie with VLC and paused it. Chrome has couple of tabs open, google pages and this message board.

While my computer is IDLE, chrome is at constant 1-5%cpu usage. while VLC is at 1-3 cpu usage. Taskbar would go 1-2% CPU. In total I am getting average of: 8% CPU usage while Idle.

While writing this message, chrome CPU would go as high as 5-8%.


IN XP, while IDLE, it would never go higher than 2%. Usually it would stay at 0 and jump to 1% once in awhile (IN TOTAL).

My laptop gets hotter because of constant cpu usage aswell.


Is it supposed to be like this? I don't see any reason why Chrome would use so much CPU, or VLC. It's idle!!

Its not chrome nor Vlc. Its the way win 7 uses memory. Its designed to be that way. I have a e1405 and yes its cpu does run higher and hotter, but its the nature of the beast

It depends on what it does under load. whats the cpu/ram under 100%, how hot does it get under full load for how long. It all in how you use it

My CPU usage used to be 10% at idle (using no high-CPU apps) even after I upgraded Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.

After Windows 10 Anniversary Updates however, my CPU usage skyrocketed 4 times higher, so now it's around 40% at idle.

I have done full anti-virus scans (Webroot) and anti-malware scans (Malwarebytes), and both report no problems.

-How do I locate and fix this high-CPU-usage problem?

*Below is a screen shot of my Processes tab at idle in Task Manager (sorted in its CPU column by descending usage):

With my 40% CPU usage, there's also an odd change in the Details tab in Task Manager and I wonder if this is a clue.

In our other (10%-CPU-usage) Windows 10 Anniversary PCs, the total of the CPU column in Details tab is about 100% (due to rounding). In my 40%-CPU-usage PC, the total is only 73%.

A:CPU usage 50% and higher, SLOW & SLUGGISH

Hello ThreadBare and welcome to TSF,

Since you've already downloaded CleanUp and Ewido, let's go ahead and run them now.

*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp!

Run Cleanup! using the following configuration:

1. Click Options...
2. Set the slider to Standard CleanUp!
3. Uncheck the following:Delete Newsgroup cache
Delete Newsgroup Subscriptions
Scan local drives for temporary files
4. Click OK
5. Press the CleanUp! button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.
* CleanUp! will not create any backups!!

--------------------------

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Make sure to close any open browsers.

--------------------------

These are minor, but let's fix them now:

Run a scan in HijackThis. 'Check' each of the following if they still exist

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE

Normally explorer.exe should have something like 12,000 K memory used at boot and rise to around just under 50,000 K as you do stuff on the computer, at least mine used to. Now the one explorer.exe is hovering around 77,000 K and I've seen it as high as 102,000 K. This happened once before but it went away the same night randomly. Now it won't go away this time. I've read other threads about two explorer.exe's and one of them being some malicious program of some kind in ProgramData, this is not the same thing. My legit one and only explorer.exe is taking much more memory than it usually does.

Any ideas? I've tried all the basic stuff I can already try now. No viruses, no malware, nothing weird going on that I know of.

On a related note, sometimes when I boot up my PC, when Windows Update and Action Center loads up, one svchost.exe will explode to around 1,300,000 K memory used! After about ten minutes, it settles to 800,000 K or 600,000 K and then after a few more minutes, finally down to 200,000 K where it belongs. I'm 99% sure it has something to do with Windows Update loading up and scanning for updates.

A:explorer.exe higher than normal mem usage

Explorer memory usage

That could be down to a buggy shell extension that needs updating (or disabling / removing)

High svchost memory usage. If it's svchost.exe (netsvcs) it would indicate either a problem with internet explorer or windows updates or both.

Reset IE and check for any missing patches.

Lots of users have had the windows updates high memory usage problem. It doesn't seem to be easy to fix. It could be that windows updates components need resetting. It could be that you need to run an advanced disk cleanup. It could be that you need to reinstall windows update agent. It could also mean that you've got failed or pending updates that need sorting out. Maybe ask for help in the windows updates section.

I posted this in another forum section I know but after over 5 days with no response and me thinking it's a virus instead of a computer problem I re-posted here. (I looked to see what I should do with no response after an amount of days but couldn't find anything except here which says after three days)

A:Higher CPU and Memory usage then normal

Hello, RKill is to be run and then immediately you would run MBAM and your AV or tools to remove what malware that was stopped by it. The purpose of this tool is to stop certain processes and fix certain reg keys that stop us from using our normal clean up tools. When you reboot the machine these stopped processes are released. (less any malware contained or associated to to them)

I see you mention Eset, Avast! If you are running 2 AV's this can be the whole problem. Having 2 active will cause conflicts and slowness and more.

Mysterious high RAM usage that is disproportionate to open processes. Right now, for instance, I have 22 processes running. They are using a total of 0.2 GB of RAM. The performance screen, however, indicates that I am using about a Gig and a half out of two Gigs. If I open up any more applications, memory usage shoots up to more than 90% and the system gets extremely sluggish. This is a new problem; did not use this much memory until a couple of weeks ago.

Hi,

A:Loud Portege M800 - CPU usage always at 50% or higher

Hi

Do you use your Portege with ?factory settings??

What you must do is to stop all useless processes that run in the background. This will reduce CPU usage.
By the way: change cooling method settings.
You can find it in advanced power plan settings > Toshiba Power saver > cooling method. Change it to battery optimized.
It will reduce cooling fan activity and notebook will run much quieter.

Test it please and post some feedback.

Running Windows 7 64-bit and just downloaded the lastest updates from Microsoft last night. Now my CPU is sitting at 20% due to Deferred Procedure Calls and Interupt Service Providers running constantly according to the resource monitor. What could cause this issue? Could it be a driver that downloaded from MS? I believe the fix for this would be to just restore back to before the install but I have a question about restore points. When I open up the restore point menu and it shows all the dates, do I pick the date of the MS update or one day earlier? I always wondered the answer to this question.

Hi guys,

I just started to see a major increase in memory usage today. More than 95% of my processes are using over 1,000k; in the past I usually only had about 10 over 1,000k.

Here are my specs, etc:
Toshiba Satellite R15-S822
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005
1.5gb RAM (see below)
Plenty of hard drive space

I recently added a 1gb stick of RAM on top of the system's standard 512mb stick. I installed this 2 days ago and it went smoothly. The speed increase was pretty noticeable and the memory usage of my processes stayed the same as they were prior to installation. Today, I installed "Rise of Nations". While I was playing it, I noticed the frame rate decreased and the game slowed. I exited and found incredible numbers in the task manager. I have also been messing with msconfig to try to speed up my boot time and stop unnecessary services from starting and I have been extremely careful...I believe.....doing so.

I immediately did a complete scan with Norton 360 (I know, I know, it's not the best, but that's what someone in my household purchased) and it was clean. I checked the log for Norton and it showed that it had found 3 viruses/trojans since 2/2/2008. They were as follows: "Trojan Horse", "W32.IRCbot", and "Downloader".

I then found this site and completed the 5 step process shown. My understanding is that Tablet PC Edition uses a ton of processes normally. Since I can remember, I've always had around... Read more

Ive noticed my ram usage is up more than normal, usage up 400-600MB. (Total 8gb.) This usage came about as some batch of windows updates lately. I have noticed inflated svchost processes. Currently the largest process I have is usage 194MB, and is an svchost. It had been 370MB, but I stopped the superfetch process temporarily, and it dropped over 150MB.

My running processes hardly add up to the 2.3GB being used. How can I see how much ram a service of a process uses? Process explorer and task manager dont show this.

A:Higher Ram Usage in Svchost and Updates - way to view service ram?

Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab.

The total process memory usage will never equal total memory usage. Modern operating systems are far too complex for anything that simple. The memory usage of a process can vary greatly for a wide variety of reasons. There are situations where usage of 370 MB by an instance of svchost.exe would be a reasonable value.

It is not practical to do this. It would require advanced tools and very detailed inside information that has never been published by Microsoft.

Hi everyone,

I've seen a few posts about this, but none too recent and none that specifically address how long to expect this to keep on...

Situation: Allowed windows to update this morning, it did several updates, and six in particular I suspect of being the cause of this "problem". I suspect the .NET Framework updates (6 today...!) to be the root of my high usage issue. I say high, but it's around 20%,sometimes shooting up to 40-60%. Usually I idle around 2%. Temps are now at CPU ~40C; MB ~30C. These are usually around 35C & 27C.

Oh,and I updated at around 11:30 AM, and its now 1:40PM.

Here's the build: No overclocking.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
AMD Phenom II x6 1100T w/ CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus
OCZ Agility 3 (installed on Saturday; optimized for the OS) primary disk--no activity showing.
Thermaltake Chaser MK1 (more big fans than you ever need)
16GB RAM (not important)
And some other stuff not pertinent to the issue.

How long do you all think I should expect this behavior? I want to play a game dangit! Thanks for any input, and questions.

UPDATE: I just checked resource monitor and while I've never used it before, it shows a wmiprvse.exe at CPU 15, everything else is bouncing around at 0-2. i searched this online, but nothing but a Windows Server fix. What gives?

A:High CPU usage & higher temps after windows updates: How long?

Okay, this is REALLY strange. I individually uninstalled all updates from today and nothing seemed to matter. Okay, I uninstalled a patch for a steam game that I downloaded yesterday. No difference. Then, I turned off the "Drives Meter" gadget for my desktop, and voila. CPU back to 0-2%. Restarted to make sure it wasn't a fluke, and sure enough still low CPU. What the heck? Until today, this was never a problem. I really liked that Drives Meter. Since this is Windows and not Linux (can't use Conky), anyone have any other suggestions. I'll mark this solved right away if anyone says they have some idea of why this happened today; also, if no one cares, I'll mark it in a bit.

I've been doing Skype video chats for the last few months nearly every night now, as it's my main way of conversing to close friends far away. But I can't say I've had this problem up until the last few weeks.

Basically, once I start a Skype video chat, my CPU usage increases from a normal low % (like 10% or less) and shoots to anywhere between 40 and 60% (or around about those figures). Once this happens, my fan on my laptop revs up and makes a loud whirring noise as it spins. I don't think it's the loudest it can go, but it certainly increases in speed and noise once the video chat starts and runs.

It actually becomes a problem for the person I am talking to because they can hear the constant whirring of the fan. I also know that Skype is the problem because once I stop the chat, the CPU usage drops back down to its normal rate and the fan stops spinning so hard. I have tried exiting all other running processes that might be affecting the speed of the CPU, but it is definitely Skype causing the problem.

What could be the cause of this? I have recently started to take up a lot more space on my laptop with all the music I have, but could this be affecting the speed of it when it uses a Skype video chat? Or do I perhaps need to open the thing up and clean out any dust? I don't know what else could be causing it.

Many thanks for those that can help me here. It's much appreciated.

I plan to transfer a JPEG to a CF card to take to Wal-Mart to have 5" x 7" prints made. This JPEG was scanned from a 35mm slide and saved as a TIFF. I saved it further as a JPEG in two sizes: 5332 x 3664 and 980 x 673.

If I were to have two 5 x 7's made, one from the larger JPEG and one from the smaller JPEG, would there be a discernible difference in quality between the prints? How about if I were to have two 4 x 6 prints made? Or two 8 x 10s? Wouldn't I be able to tell the difference more in a larger print? It seems to me, theoretically, that a print made from a 5332 x 3664 file would turn out sharper than one made from a 980 x 673 file. However, if I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, then of course I'd prefer working with the smaller files.

Hello.
I have this new PC:
CPU: I-5 2500 (without the 'k') @ 3.3Ghz
GPU: ASUS GTX 580 direct cu II overclocked to 878 Mhz
Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?

But for some reason when I tried to add a shortcut to task manager to my startup folder, that little graph never shows up anymore.

Also in the past, when I installed windows media center on my desktop, there was a little icon added that was black/green/yellow/red that monitored cpu usage. I can't seem to find that..

Just recently I noticed that the CPU is going all the time (The bottom of the laptop is very hot to the touch; and I can hear the CPU fan constantly going). Even when I get the CPU usage down < 5%, I can still hear it. Also, when I disconnect it from the outlet; the battery drains FAST. In the past it the laptop quiets down and cools off if left idle for awhile, so this is something that is happening recently.

After noticing it, I ran a scan with MBAM - it found and removed a few Malware.Trace registry keys but that didn't seem to help.

Anyway, thanks to everyone in advance for all your help (It really is appreciated)

Hi!

I bought a new desktop last year to run high-end software used for my degree; I installed Windows 8 on it, having got on with it on my laptop. I did notice though, after venturing into the Task Manager, that my CPU usage was at 100%. All the time. Even when idle. In fact, resource monitor says it's working at 108% load! I thought this was rather odd, so investigated further:

It appears that task manager divides the 100% usage proportionally between the processes using the CPU. So for example if Firefox, Word and Notepad were using 5%, 3% and 2% respectively, Task Manager would report 50%, 30% and 20% usage. I was initially concerned that my processor was going to take some serious damage to its life expectancy if it was being constantly loaded - but the performance monitor in Norton Anti-virus shows the CPU load to be much, much lower - where I'd expect it to be.

My system is an 3.4GHz i7, with 16GB RAM running 64-bit Windows 8 Pro. People have suggested a fresh install, but it's an almighty pain backing everything up and re-installing VPN servers and software through various security measures, so I'd rather not...

Any clues?

A:Why does task manager always show CPU usage at 100%? It's

Hi,

some days ago, when analyzing another problem, i stumbled upon a fatal error in the CPU performance display in the Microsoft task manager. I wrote a little bit about this problem in the following post.

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2269972-weird-4gbit-s-nic-limit-without-rss?page=1#entry-8853...

In summary: for me, the task manager as well as the resource monitor and the performance monitor do not show the correct CPU utilization.

Here is an example.

I start a test and the CPU display of core 0 climbs to 100% in Task Manager.




The Resource Monitor shows the same thing.




Only the performance monitor shows the correct load, but the display it "inconsistent".




The processor load is normally shown up to max. 100%, but my core 0 run according to the performance monitoring with up to 120%. ??

The Process Explorer shows the correct utilization of my core 0.



HWiNFO also shows the load correctly.



I suddenly had the following apprehension.
If you cannot correctly measure the utilization of a system, so it's not possible to control its performance properly. ??

So I immediately opened a support ticket at Microsoft by telephone and then described the problem accordingly by email.

A few hours later I received an email with the following text. "Dear Mr. Fuchs, your support case has been closed."

That can not be true. ?

I thought it might have been something to do with dust inside the heatsink so I cleaned the dust with a vaccum cleaner. After that, it still wouldn't slow down so I changed the thermal paste. It now slows down a bit but still run at the average of 4000rpm.
I also tweaked with the bios a bit but still no luck.
