problems with drivers and processes RRS feed

  • Question

  • lately I've noticed that I have between 60 and 70 processes running on startup. I ran a general health check and when I got the report I realized the numbers seem excessive. It said my cpu usage was at 100%  What can I do to fix this?

    60-70 processes is not excessive, in fact it is about normal in win 7 64 bit.  Is there a reason that you are concerned over the amount?  I have seen win 7 machine where the mfr's bloatware was left intact that had 120-140 processes.

    If you are interested in what each of them do and if they are necessary there is a site where you can find out called blackviper.com

  • Hi,

    I agree with ZigZag.

    If you think these process cause high cpu usage, I also would like to share the links below with you:

    How to Reduce CPU Usage

    http://www.wikihow.com/Reduce-CPU-Usage

    The Case of the System Process CPU Spikes

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/archive/2008/04/07/3031251.aspx

    Open the Performance troubleshooter

    In addition, I would like to suggest you contact your computer vender to diagnose the CPU and motherboard.

    Hope it helps.
