Q: How to Fix High Disk and Memory utilization in Model no - HP...

Hi , I have replaced my internal hard drive with new hard drive (5400 rpm 500GB). I did hard drive test for new one and its passed though old was failed that's why i have changed. The problem is that the "DISK" and "Memory are quite high (sometimes its 100%) while working. My Norton Anti-virus shows some windows ("svchost") services for the root cause. Sometime it display other services. I don't the actual root cause. Confirguration of my machine is 64 bit, 4GB RAM, 500 GB HDD (5400 RPM). Do i need to increase my RAM or is there something which can fix this issue ? Thanks in Advance...! -Pankaj

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.)

I keep adding memory to ATA and it keeps eating it all up. I just increased from 8 to 16 to 24 GB of RAM, and still its at 99% utilization at times. What is happening?
Microsoft.Tri.Center (via the Microsoft ATA Center service) is taking up 22GB of the 24GB of RAM.  Something called "mongod" is taking up 1GB.  IIS worker process is at 275MB.  Everything else is below 100MB. 

On a side note, CPU utilization seems high as well.  I gave it 4 CPU, but Microsoft.Tri.Center is using between 50 and 95%. 

Please advise if there is a problem with my install or if I misjudged how much it needs.  I'm going to try 32GB of RAM and 8 CPU next.

There are many Print Servers in my Production environment but some of Print Servers are getting high memory utilization from printfilterpipelinesvc exe process.All the Print Servers are configured with PCounter Server.I m curious to know about that why it's
happening this. I want to resolve this issue as soon as possible because whenever printfilterpipelinesvc exe process utilize high memory of my Print Servers, its performance get very slow and once it reaches up to 100% utilization none of administrator
can take remote control of that Server. I m looking out for a solution which helps me to get rid of this problem.

I got a new computer for a client, and almost immediately, he began complaining about performance. It turns out that the culprit is always close to 100% utilization by some combination of iexplore.exe. He does, after all, keep many news pages open all day
every day. But there are more instances of iexplore.exe than he has copies of IE open. But if we close all open copies, it closes these phantom ones as well.
None of that would be a problem were it not for the facts that 1) the CPU usage is so high and 2) the amount of RAM allocated to a single instance continues to grow over time. I saw one yesterday that was up to almost 1 GB.
While a virus is a possibility, I find it unlikely on a new computer like this, so I want to check other things before I start throwing random AV checkers at it.
This user is a tinkerer and can rarely tell me what has changed. He fiddled with his IE security settings (ActiveX), then thought he set it back, but could not then get to his bank's website. Setting IE security back to the default fixed this.
So it is highly likely that he has been into the settings. And while I could just do a reset of IE settings, I first want to know if there are specific settings that can cause high CPU utilization and cause each process to continue to consume more RAM over
time. I have heard that perhaps leaving script debugging enabled can do this, but I figure someone here on the forum may be able to help target the specific cause.

When I check for windows updates svchost.exe uses 2.5GB of RAM. When I stop the windows update agent service memory utilization drops down and everything is running fine.

I have downloaded and installed the latest version of windows update agent.
I have deleted the software distribution folder and recreated it.
Run the fix it tool that re registers any services related to windows update

I attempted to install the system update readiness tool from (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=20858) but it fails to install. It does however generate the CBS logs. The CheckSUR does not find anything but I checked the CBSPersist and this error repeatedly

I had to select what I wanted to upload from the logs due to filesize limitation but please let me know if anything else is needed.

If anyone could think of anything please let me know. I am out of ideas on this one.

I have a new system running W7 X64. It's an ASUS I7 with 8GB of memory, and I expected it to be blazing fast. It only has a handful of programs installed, but it is slower than my old P4 XP box.

Initial problems - on about the third day I had it, it refused to boot. Tried safe mode and system restore - System restore failed. Ultimately, it did manage to reboot, albeit very slowly. However, I have never been able to do a system restore.

Current symptoms:
In office 2007, word is very sluggish when saving files - after a pause, a dialogue box shows up at the bottom saying that word is preparing to background save. Next the title bar at the top shows word not responding (briefly) after which the file is saved.

Corel Paint Shop Pro - Very high CPU utilization (close to 100% on one of the cores). File open, and file saves very slow - even on small files.

Explorer - when clicking on directories, I often see the rotating circle (new equivalent to the hourglass?) while explorer opens the directory. Explorer also shows high CPU utilization in one of the cores.

Recent event errors:
Most common -Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error querying for the IVssWriterCallback interface. hr = 0x80070005, Access is denied.
. This is often caused by incorrect security settings in either the writer or requestor process.

Hi.

The Core i7 is blazing fast. The fastest cpu you can buy for home use.

So something is definitely wrong. You can type system information in the start menu search box. Hit enter. The on the screen that pops up, ctrl+s to save.

Then rar or zip the saved file and use the paperclip to attach to a post.

However now CPU utilization shoots to 100 % without any reason. Sometime Skype takes most of the CPU and sometime task manager and sometimes Outlook or Google Chrome. I have re-installed Windows couple of times but situation didn't get any better. I have antivirus installed and system has been scanned regularly for viruses and no virus found so far. Can you please help me to diagnose this issue to find out the root cause and fix it?

Hi there, I have a Lenovo about 2 years old that has 16GB RAM, 1TB Memory, i7 Intel processor, Windows 10, etc. This thing is a beast in specs, yet it has been running slowly for a while now and I can't figure out what the deal is.  In the task manager it seems that my memory is always running ~70% no matter what I am doing. It also seems that my disk is running at full capacity a lot of the time and ranges from 50-100% even when I am just on the internet.  I feel like this shouldn't be happening given the stats of this computer. It makes it hard to work with programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, games, etc.  In my task manager I have 131 background processes running (even after I restart my computer). I am not sure that this is normal. Even when I have disabled most programs on startup I end up having a crazy amount of background processes.  Does anyone have any insight into this? Do I have a setting wrong somewhere, something running that shouldn't be, etc? I know that Cortana and search have been a huge problem, and when I disable Cortana it gets better, but then starts lagging again down the road. Please help!

I'm not sure if all of the info about the product name and operating system is totally correct sorry for my ignorance !Really frustrated! For Christmas I just got an HP Notebook (brand new) from wal mart. Everything was fine until I started using the Internet and realized when I typed things out the keyboard lagged and sometimes would freeze completely for a couple seconds. Web pages sometimes freeze randomly and then unfreeze for a couple seconds and it takes a ridiculously long time for my computer to start up ( it gets stuck on the getting Windows ready screen for like 10-20 minutes every time which I think is insane for a brand new laptop).I checked task manager and there was random programs running in the background that I disabled but when I checked the page with CPU, Memory, and Disk it was insanely high. Disk and CPU shot between 60-100 percent and memory was around 60. This is ridiculous in my opinion considering I haven't downloaded anything and nothing was running except one tab of chrome. I have no idea why this is happening, though attempted to uninstall some things like the games it comes with, mcafee, bonjour, etc with no luck, it's still insanely high.

Hi guys,

I have been having issues with my computer recently. The disk usage has been jumping up to 100% frequently, and the memory usage is up in the 80's. CPU usage is on the high side too. I don't have much running, I wonder if there is something running in the background that could be the cause? It is not all the time, but intermittently.

Also, maybe a windows 10 issue, but when i try to shut down about 50% of the time it just starts up again?

I previously posted this in the malware section and my computer was found to be clean

Thanks in advance for any help,

Good evening and welcome to the latest installment where I marvel at the genius of TSF while they help diagnose and repair my computer. Our somewhat-annual series has seen several examples of such wizardry and the world is waiting in anticipation of the latest feat.

Seriously, I'm glad you guys are around as I'm again out of my league and understanding.

Two (three?) days ago - sometime during the weekend - I had a sudden BSOD. I was watching video on VLC when suddenly the computer crashed. Since then, I have had very high utilization on all six cores of the CPU. It alternates between cores, with core 0 running the highest at 86% - 100% and the rest varying between 20% - 70%. RAM utilization is approximately 50% (4gb of 8), which is a little high; normal is 25% - 33%. These are idle specs. Any significant action easily takes them all to 100%.

In looking at the Resource Monitor, the biggest CPU items are PluginInstall.exe, which says is for Surfing Protection at about 16.57 Average CPU and SPInit.exe, also for Surfing Protection, and also at the same Average CPU. Sometimes, ASCService.exe (Advanced System Care) is also there - I have it disabled currently so its not showing up.

To my knowledge, these spikes have only started since the BSOD. It is possible they were there a little before and I not notice them - but not likely as it disrupts really any significant activity (watching video, playing games).

Hi agcereniv. I don't think this is malware related. I'm not seeing signs of infection in the logs. You'll likely be better served posting in our BSOD forum. They are better equipped to diagnose these events. They'd probably like us to be sure there's no malware afoot.

I would start with uninstalling Iobit ASC. It's indicated in several Event Viewer lines, and you've noted it's processes are the ones spiking. They also have a somewhat dubious history

My computer has been sporadically running REALLY slow.  Like it will take 10-15 seconds just for text that I type to show up.  Loading a web page will hang for quite a while, then load fine.  It usually goes really slow for 1-2 minutes, then seem fine for a little while, then slow again.  When it is fine, it could last 5 minutes or an hour.  Nothing, that I can see anyway, is triggering it.
 
The cause of the issue seems to be MsMpEng.exe,(which is part of MS Security Essentials).  When I pull up my resource monitor, MsMpEng.exe is consistantly at 23-30% CUP utilization.  Nothing else is using anything significant.    This exe is also taking up a decent amount of memory (235,116 kb).  And a decent amount of disk activity (1,662,939 B/Sec).  
 
This is a steady amount for MsMpEng.  I'd understand if it were only when it running a scan or something, but that's not the case. 
 
My Computer Specs (if you need them): 
Windows 7 Ultimate (SP1) 64 bit
Processor: Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67Ghz

I have a friends computer. It is a Dell Dimension E310, 2.79 GHz processor with 2 GB RAM. It is running XP SP3 and has been running smoothly.

He has Norton Antivirus and it says it is up-to-date. It has CCleaner on it and he runs the registry clean-up portion of ccleaner about once a month.

Last week, he was running a Norton scan and it wouldn't finish. He asked me to look at it for him.

When you boot up, it seems to run great. I open Task manager and select all users and it is 99% idle. after about 2 minutes, a messgaes comes up Trojan.Fake.AV. At this time, the task manager changes. A process ccsvchst starts to use CPU, it starts at 30% and goes to 50% and higher. Also a process lsass.exe starts to use CPU time - up to 20%.

A:Windows 8 High usage CPU/Memory and disk

Some AV programs use quite a bit of resources. They are running all of the time, I use an AV that only scans if significant file system changes are detected, like installing a new program or downloading files. Under normal use, the real time scanner is in an idle state.

Try tweeking your AV settings, shut off any real time protection, see if that improves the performance. If it does, I'd consider getting a different AV program. I use Eset but only after trying every other one there is, its the one that impacts my performance the least. Mcafee was the worst, Norton second worst. Also, new AV suites overwrite the already adequate Windows Firewall, I don't see any reason to install any of those. Eset makes a Smart Security suite, I only use that in XP systems that don;t have a real full firewall. Norton and Mcafee will put a full firewall in there and it is in a "Learning" state, which means it nags you as you use your machine.

There could be another program that hogs your resources as well, maybe something you weren't aware got installed. Toolbars, Chrome and Firefox Extensions, are all suspect. Look for icons in your tray that you don't know what they are, also change your taskbar settings so it shows all tray items without hiding anything.

Hi all. I've got one I wanted to run by this group to see if anyone has run into a similar problem. I currently have a Dell desktop with an AMD Triple Core Phenom that I use as a media library. I stream content from there to my Xbox, mostly audio--it is connected to my audio system. I have other devices on a homegroup which this Dell is a part of, two HP laptops and some portables. Whenever I stream to my Xbox my CPU utilization on the Dell runs as high--and higher--than 90%. I don't run into the same problem when streaming content to one of the laptops. Is this just an inherent limitation when it comes to this CPU or something that I could remedy? I hate to fry the desktop.

I would appreciate any advice that could be offered. Thanks to all.

A:High CPU Utilization while streaming through Xbox

Most likely this problem has to do with the A/V software that is installed on the problem machine. There are a few that cause either CPU or memory usage spikes depending on the machine.

I have a very annoying problem. If the CPU utilization is high on my laptop, windows 7 goes into hibernate. This happens, for example, if I run a virus program or run some applications that use too much CPU.

Right after it wakes up from hibernate, again it goes into hibernate. This repeats again and again.

I'm really stuck here.

Do you have any idea why this might be happening?

Well not incredibly high, just higher than the utilization amount.
 
I just reset my computer about a week ago because of some problems that were happening. When I started using it I got an average of 6 Mbps according to task manager, but my programs were using around 1 Mbps shared between all of them according to resource monitor.
I don't have any network throttle at all. 
 
Anyway to fix this? I know this isn't supposed to happen because before I reset my computer this didn't occur.

Hi,
It wasn't too long ago that I had a problem with my computer(hp 2000 notebook) making a grinding noise where the fan was and I had taken it upon my self to "fix" the issue of a wire poking into the fan area by taking it apart. I had put everything back together just the way it was but, after I had turned the computer back on after that, it was taking a long time to load up my applications and such. It was started to irritate me so much, I factory reset my computer twice, only saving a handful of my original programs. The factory resets did not help, and Norton reinstalled and continued telling me I had high disk usage and I'm just like "from what!?". So Iv'e tried pushing through these slower speeds but I find chrome freezing and my applications slowing down on me and it's the worst my laptop has been. My laptop is so far from being the best but, before it was an okay deal for just browsing or using animation software. I uninstalled Norton because I've read it's slows your pc's performance but, that has not even effected my computer a bit since it was uninstalled. I looked online for other solutions like checking task manager for suspicious disk usage but there's nothing there that looks threatening and I even stopped that superfetch thing but nothing happened either. When I gotten this pc like 3 or so years ago, it was nothing like it was now with the default programs and settings.

A:High disk and memory usage slowing my laptop.

the taskmanager showing running software doesnt help very much at the top you can click on disk or cpu to sort the list if the disk is 100% click the disk so we can see whats taking all the usage.
The other thing is your running a 64 bit o/s with only 2 gig of ram to make use of a 64 bit you want 4 gig or more so a memory upgrade is the best option.
Are you running win8 or 8.1? Your best move is to do the free upgrade form 8.1 to win10 as its min memory for a 64 bit system is 2 gig so it will work a lot better for you

Hi everyone. I am currently having issues trying to diagnose the system and compressed memory bug that causes slow disk operations. I am running a computer that I have built myself. i5 6600k, 16 GB of RAM, 2 SSD and 1 HDD. The slow operations only happen on the HDD. I can notice this when folders start to become slow and playing saved videos start to lag and drop frames. I can copy these videos and watch them just fine on the SSDs without any lag at all. I have tried multiple fixes such as disabling the notifications from windows and One Drive does not seem to be installed on my computer. I have also tried all of the solutions here BEST FIX: 100% Disk Usage by ?System and Compressed Memory? in Windows 10 - Appuals.com I just tried the second one now so I'm not sure if that's going to work. I'm just a little worried that disabling the second one will have some kind of negative impact on my computer. I also have the same symptoms as the user suggested fix as mentioned in that link, but I am not sure how to go about changing the settings like they did.

It is also worth noting that this hard drive is from a previous laptop that I put into my desktop. The system boots off of one of the SSDs and the HDD that is slow is side drive.

A:System and compressed memory high disk usage

Hi, if you search the forum for
system and compressed memory

you will find useful information in several threads. It may not be easy or quick to resolve. Solutions are different for different users. This was much discussed about a year ago- hardly any reports recently.

Given that, I would suggest you manually update to the AU build from1511.
Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums
Take due precautions, and create full disk images before you do so e.g. using Macrium Reflect (free) 0 disk images are strongly recommended here.

Why? People sometimes find the upgrade fails and their PC is unbootable, or they experience widely reported new issues with the AU esp. on older hardware. So your disk images (which you can then use routinely as good practice) can save you.

Could you please add your Win 10 build and Pro/Home to your specs.

Thanks!

Hi,

We have a new computer which we have been using for a few weeks now primarily to record from many cameras simultaneously and save to disk. Consequently, there's a lot of disk I/O and RAM usage going on.

Everything worked fine until we got a BSOD today. The crash dump says something about ntkrnlmp and svchost being responsible. I'm worried that the high disk I/O (supposed to be at 110MB/sec) and seeking (because we're saving to up to 8 different files simultaneously so the disk has to seek a lot) is causing it. If that's the case I'll change the disk writing program so that it doesn't require that much seeking, but writes everything to an interleaved file.

I'm attaching the dump files as instructed http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ns-452654.html

Okey, so I have this problem with high fan noise when I'm running Autodesk Revit. No problem running AutoCad, illustrator, photoshop etc, but as soon as I start working in Revit the fan gets up to full speed within a few minutes. When running a Workload analysis with Dell Precision Optimizer the result is that CPU, Disk and Graphics have an average utilization of 0% with extremely short peaks around 50% and a memory average of 50%. If this Workload Analysis is accurate or not I don't know but this is the recurring result.My Hardware is a "new" Dell Precision M3800 with i7-4712HQ 2.30 GHz, 16 gb RAM (2x8), Quadro K1100M Graphics Card, SSD disk.I'm running Revit 2017 on Windows 10 64-bit. All drivers has been updated to the newest versions including BIOS update. Hardware Acceleration is turned on in Revit.
Do you have any ideas on what the "problem" could be or if there is a solution or not?Is the hardware not good enough? Can it be a settings or drivers issue?
Is there something I can do or do I have to buy a new computer?Thanks in advance!

It will show you the exact file it's trying to read over and over again.



I'd searched all over ... registry entries, avi file searches, etc, to no avail.

Used this Procmon.exe. Sure there were lots of processes. But, suddenly it escalated 10 or 20-fold. At least two of my processors moved to 40, 50, 60, 70, then 80% utilization. I scrolled to bottom (latest entries) and scanned thru list to see that over an over three files continually coming up as not found.

In this folder:

I have a situation where a virus is propagating by using shares. The network utilization on the workstation jumps to about 90% and port 445 or port 139 is being used to look for more EXE files on the network. I can see the exe's on the local computers have been modified and the size is about 100k larger.

I have run MalwareBytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, ComboFix, Avira, RKill, McAfee VirusScan and TDSKiller. Only Avira finds some of the files as infected with the TR/crypt.zpack.gen or TR/cryptxpack.gen3 virus, but not all the corrupted exe's are found. I have to keep monitoring each running application to see if the network utilization jumps and then track down the offending process using Process Monitor. Once that process is located, I have to rename the EXE and either remove and reinstall the software or find a clean copy of that file somewhere.

I have two of the infected files in my dropbox that can be downloaded and reviewed.
hxxp://dl.dropbox.com/u/21974438/QBDBMgrN.exeinfected
hxxp://dl.dropbox.com/u/21974438/winvnc.exeinfected

I need to find a tool that can find this virus located in the EXE's and be able to clean it. Any recommendations?

Hello.First of all. . . you need to isolate infected machines from each other and from the rest of the network. You'll never stop an infection like this while the machines are connected.Second of all. . . since you've run ComboFix it will be necessary for you to seek help from the Malware Removal Team.Please follow the instructions in This Guide starting at Step 6.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them. You should also post your ComboFix log.If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.~Blade

On my work (wired) lan, I am regularly, but not always, unable to access any SSL/TLS site. I've also seen recently BSODs with various drivers named as the culprit. Ran full Webroot scan, nothing. Ran Malwarebytes, eventually 'stuck' after scanning files, where it found nothing (but set off Webroot a couple of times.) Ran Avast scan, nothing. Ran GMER and got rootkit warning. This line was in my GMER output:
Library         pö¶ö¶ é||ö¶ (*** hidden *** ) @ C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE [5588]                                                                          0x07EA0000            
This vaguely resembles TDSS but not sure. I have the full log from GMER and from a 3rd party scan (I'll wait for that to be requested, almost 1000 lines long.)

2) I had a couple of incidences where my graphics driver died, so figured I would update while I was doing this stuff. Downloade... Read more

Just a question...

I recently upgraded my hardware because of a replacement for my old 21" CRT 1280x960 monitor with a new 24" LCD 1920x1200 monitor, being used as Monitor #2 in a 2-monitor setup. Monitor #1 is also a 24" LCD 1920x1200 monitor and remains unchanged.

To properly support the second digital monitor, I upgraded the video card from a DVI/VGA HD4850 to a DVI/DVI HD5770.

When I was using the HD4850 card in the machine Aida64 reported about 20% GPU utilization when I was watching 1080i HDTV (in a window on monitor #1). Now, with the HD5770, Aida64 reports much much higher GPU utilization... around 65%. GPU utilization is lower when watching 720p, so I'm certain what I'm seeing is a reasonably accurate representation of true hardware utilization related to HDTV.

It's hard to tell about ordinary CPU utilization when watching these HDTV programs, as it was and is relatively low. So if it's now lower (because the HD5770 hardware is taking on the load), it's not that obvious. Even with the HD4850 there was not a high CPU utilization when watching HDTV.

I don't know if this is anything I need to be concerned about, or whether this is good or bad, or whether this is simply an indication that the HD5770 hardware is actually performing much more of the HD-related processing whereas with the HD4850 that same required processing was handled by software in the drivers.

So... can anybody enlighten me as to whether what I'm seeing is perfectly normal and ... Read more

I have a new Envy 15 x360, running Windows 10 (64 bit, core i7).  It came with Windows 8 and constantly 'went to sleep' with disk utilization at 100%.  I upgrateded to Windows 10 at first opportunity, and thought it was much better.  However, today, I have had a repeat.  It was so bad, Chrome pages all started coming up with big gray 'web page cannot be displayed" before I figured out it was doing the 100% disk utilization thing again. I found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/3h4wjg/windows_10_high_disk_usage_100_ive_seen_a_threa... and my disk utilization dropped to zero as soon as I turned off all the notifications.  Will see if that fix lasts. One thing I noticed though:  In Resource Monitor, Disk Activity, when running at 100% Disk IO, the rate was reported as 3-4 MB/Sec for long periods of time.  There were spikes, but that seemed to be the steady state value. Is 3-4 MB/Sec Disk IO a normal IO rate at 100% disk utilization?

The 'solution' in my first post didn't really fix the problem.  Tonight, I booted up and got the frequent 'cannot use the PC due to 100% disk utilization' and decided to post again.  I think it lasted about 4 minutes after login.  Attached is the screen shot.
