Who or what is accessing my discs during video playback? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My PC is a recent model with excellent resources and does all tasks very quickly.

    recently on IE i played a youtube video at 1080p from VEVO...the video froze constantly.

    So i turned on Resource Monitor and was surprised to see numerous files being read from the DISC section. There were many being written: example:

     System 4 C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\L7GNNBQI\videoplayback[1] 16384 2483712 - 10

    But many were being READ from files that had no business being read from..ie..these are just a few...

    Image PID File Read (B/min) Write (B/min) IO Priority Response Time (ms)
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\wsock32.dll 4608 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\System32\Query.dll 1171968 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\System32\taskcomp.dll 409600 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\FWPUCLNT.DLL 595456 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\System32\wbem\WmiPrvSD.dll 703488 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\System32\jscript.dll 817664 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\ClientRegistry.blob 1916928 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\usp10.dll 701952 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\d3dim700.dll 840704 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\bin\friendsUI.dll 3168256 0 - 1
    svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) 308 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\appcache\httpcache\95 4096 0 - 0

    is this normal or should i be worried?
