Microsoft Taskmanager show wrong CPU Usage !!!

Q: Microsoft Taskmanager show wrong CPU Usage !!!

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. ?
Dear Microsoft, determining and displaying the CPU load of a modern processor based on its base frequency is anything but not a wise idea today. Just take a look at this ?

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/series/195734/10th-generation-intel-core-i7-pro...

But this time please not only look at the base clock rate but also at the Max Turbo Frequency. ?

This also applies to the server processors ?

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Taskmanager show wrong 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.)

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)

Greetings, been away awhile but have a busy CPU question. At idle, one of my CPUs (dual core AMD 3800) oscillates. It continues to do this even when I shut down all user processes. Performance seems ok. I don't understand why it is doing this. I will attach a .gif screen capture. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions on diagnosing.

A:CPU Usage in taskmanager

Did you try sorting the process list by CPU usage and seeing which ones figure at the top?

Use an advanced process monitor like Process Explorer from Sysinternals. It will show you system processes too.

Most likely it is your firewall or antivirus hogging the machine. Are you a Norton or Zonealarm user?

Accidentially I pressed some unknown key combination/sequence and the result was that the
title bar and the menu bar of the well known built-in Task Manager was suddenly hidden.

Only the processes are shown in window. I cannot even switch to the other tabs.

I am currently running Windows 8 (not 8.1), and have been experiencing difficulty with my disc usage. Programs (especially upon startup) have been unresponsive or painfully slow lately, and upon checking the Task Manager, the Disc Usage will be at 100% or close to 100%. I have also noticed this happening when starting large programs such as games and Word. There is no logical explanation from the Task Manager, the most I have seen a process using during these spikes is around 7MB, and it's formatted for 700 MBs. So, what is sucking up the Disc usage, and how, if at all possible, do I stop it?

I would like to be able to monitor my cpu usage and physical ram usage in the task bar, much like how windows 7 has a desktop gadget.
Google search has told me to use task manager, and to check the "hide when minimized" option, and it'll display the square green and black meter.
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..
So does anyone know of a program that can monitor cpu usage AND physical ram? I'd appreciate it.

A:Show cpu and ram usage in taskbar?

This isn't really preventing anything other than I usually use my droid to quickly check the weather which is no longer possible. How can I get this corrected? I have submitted a question to Pace which owns 2wire now but have not heard back yet. Any help would be appreciated.

I noticed over the weekend when I go to speedtest.net it shows the wrong location. I live on the east outskirts of London yet it thinks my nearest test server is Aberdeen / Edinburgh. If I go to edge, the home/start page which can be customised shows weather for Edinburgh! I have manually customised for London to fix this rather than let it auto detect. But it's weird. If I open the maps app it shows me on the map in the correct location!

its worth noting that I am seeing the same problem on my iMac when I go to speedtest.net so it's not a Windows problem but it's still left me scratching my head and also wondering why the maps apps on both machines get the location correct. Both connect via Ethernet.

on my iPad and iPhone which use wifi, launching the speedtest app gives the correct location/nearest server

A:Speedtest.net and edge show wrong location

I'd heard that speed test will find the server nearest where your internet provider's address is, I have to manually choose Manchester as that's the closest to me but automatically it can choose Maidenhead or elsewhere other than where I am.

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?

Hi all!

I've just recently began to use the jump lists more and more. In general they work fine but I use VectorWorks and I imported a .pdf into the application. Now the jump list only displays that imported .pdf but not the .vwx files native to that application. I'm pretty sure the jump list worked correctly before the import, but since I've come to rely on them just recently, I can't be a 100% on this.

How could I fix this and make the jump lists display the correct types of files? Just opening a native files with VW doesn't work as they do not become "recent files". I'm at loss here.

Thanks for reading this.

A:How do I paste a screen to a thread to show you whats wrong

Hi Brian,

This is actually quite simple, although I had a bit of difficulty fathoming it out for my first post. There are actually 2 main methods. The first, if all the necessary data is on the screen, is to use the 'Sniping Tool' and create an image which you save to your hard drive (you can tidy the image up in 'Paint' if you wish). If they are text files, then save them as normal. When you wish to include them in a post, or a reply to a post, you need to select the 'Advanced' option. One of the options here is 'Attachments' (symbolised by a paperclip). If you click on this, another window opens entitled 'Manage Attachments'. This is split into 3 sections. The top 2 sections are what you are interested in, whilst the 3 section lists the valid file types and restrictions (if any). The first section is 'Upload Fle from your Computer'.

Using Windows Vista I Burned One of my Audiobooks that I had converted to MP3. I selected the option so it would be playable in data (MP3) capable CD players. When the burned disk loads in my sony cd/mp3 player stereo both the the tracks are out of order. They almost seem to skip every other ie... 2,6,3,7,4,8 and the folders lined up cd12, cd01, cd02, (the rest being fine, but cd12 at the beginning. Quite frustrating.

The files appear (titles) to be all lined up.

I just tried windows media player 11 and when I load a folder the last track starts then the rest follow in sync. It almost seems random. What am I overlooking?

thx

Ive just re-installed Vista 32-Bit as I didnt find any benefits from using 64-Bit and it appears that the drive usage space is out by 2Gb... I have enabled show hidden files AND protected operating system files and highlighted all in C:\ and it reports the following:...

10.7Gb of 30.8Gb free... so that means that 20.1Gb is used according to Vista...

but when I highlight all in C:\ with all hidden options to 'show' then click properties it only shows 18.1Gb used...

so theres 2Gb missing somewhere , now ive noticed this in the past in XP and the margin seems to get bigger as time goes on... I found this can also happen sometimes after the system crashing or forcing shut-off by holding power button in this seems to be due to the Hard-drive not shutting down properley and you end up with 'lost files' and lost space on the drive

but I've had no errors on this system the install is only 2 days old ...

does anyone have any answers?

also is there a way to completley disable hibernate as I dont use it and would like the 2Gb it uses

THANKS

In windows 8.1 accessing near by wi-fi networks list next to clock showed data usage for each monitored network right under network name , i understand that windows 10 now monitors data in general over a one month span unrelated to which network you use or billing periods which is far beyond the definition lame , so can this feature of windows 8.1 be enabled on Windows 10 in any form for even one single network ?

Hi everyone,
I was wondering where all my hard drive space has gone today, and I wondered if a program that could show you what was on the hard drive existed. Kind of like a pie chart of your hard drive - each segment belonging to different categories.
Does something like this exist? It would be great to know where all the space has gone so I can delete some rubbish.

Win 8.1/64 with all the latest fisxes, I am on a slow satellite internet connection (Starband) and do almost all our downloading from midnight to 6 am because that window does not count against our bandwidth usage. Last night I downloaded about 450mb between midnight and 6 am and the network usage app reported zero usage between midnight and 6 am but reported it all in the 6am window which is a problem for me. This showed at 6:04 am which makes it physically impossible.
Yesterday I did the registry hack to remove the 20% system reserved bandwidth in order to speed up the network and wonder if this could of had an impact on the false recording?
All suggestions appreciated.

A:Network Usage app show false data

I also recently set my wifi connection to a metered connection to save bandwidth and wondering if that can cause the weirdness with the Network Usage app. Now the network app only flashes briefly and disappears when started. Did an uninstall and reinstalled from app store and the same weirdness occurs where if just flashes briefly when selected then goes away. Also when I click on estimated usage or reset under my network icon in settings nothing happens. The registry key for viewing network usage is 1.

I have an annoying problem with Vista's taskbar buttons and iconified windows not showing correct window miniatures anymore for drives, special folders with azure-green icons like Music, Documents etc., e.g. http://f.imagehost.org/0502/Immagine.jpg
Once I enter Documents\mydir for example the icon in the taskbar for that folder turns like that in the image instead of reflecting the folder mini-icon you're in at that moment!

There is nothing on the net about this kind of problem! I've Googled for hours!
Hope someone can help me to find and reset the correct key(s) in the registry.

Hello ... I have a flash drive attached to my Netgear wireless router that I make backups to and transfer files to and from other computers at home. It was formatted as NTFS and set up in the router about 2 weeks ago. I just noticed yesterday that all the folders in the drive have dates of 2003 -- even new folders I created today. The files inside all seem to be fine, with correct dates.

I am positive the drive did not start out this way. It was functioning normally. Does anyone know what could have caused these weird folder dates and how to prevent this from happening in the future? Is there any way to fix this? Could the backup program I am using be causing this problem? It is Syncback and it is doing automated backups to this drive.

The computer I am using is a new Asus T300 Chi with Windows 8.1.

Any ideas? I am stumped.

--Pat

A:Folders on a network attached drive show wrong date

It probably isn't the drive but the Router. You may have to enter the Router setup while connected via Ethernet cable and check the date. Check the documentation for the address to use in your browser, something along the line of 192.168.1.1, the last two numbers will vary between brands and maybe between models.

Win 7 Pro 64-bit. On reboot, I want Task Manager to start automatically, as early as possible, ideally in the Processes tab, showing processes from all users, and sorted by CPU usage (with max CPU usage on top).

If that's too specific, then I just want Task Manager to start automatically on reboot, as early as possible, regardless of its focus.

How can I do this?

If it's helpful, I have autoruns, but I've never used it to make a new startup program.

Thanks.

Win 7 64 bit Dell Optiplex 780. 4G RAM.
 
A few days ago the system went sideways and now I have very high (but fluctuating) CPU usage and memory usage.  Processes in Task Manager  are running wild and some are showing multiple instances where I wouldn't have expect them to be so. Using Chrome to make this post but IE repeatedly crashes and allowing the crash to search for a resolution to the problem does not produce results. Details have shown issues with various dll files. 
 
I've temporarily removed avast. Installed and run malwarebytes, adware, jrt, ccleaner. Did a scan disc. All these come back clean.
 
Thinking this is a windows issue but not sure where to start. 
 
Any thoughts?
 
Thanks,

Hello chasingstillness
Please start with this program.
 
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (A.K.A. MBAR) from HERE
Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe
Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats.
Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so.
Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed.
Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain.
If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.
When done, please post the two logs produced they will be in the MBAR folder..... mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt
 
Thank You
