PC VERY slow to wake up & Radeon Settings: Host Application

Question: PC VERY slow to wake up & Radeon Settings: Host Application

Home Built PC
AMD FX 6300 Six Core Processor
AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series Display Adaptor
Windows 10

My upgrade to Windows 10 went well and all has been great for months until all of a sudden a few days ago when I try to wake up the computer after putting it in sleep mode.. the spinning dots are going at about 1/3 speed and it doesn't wake up until I ctl/alt/del and it restarts.

I also just noticed that now on my task manager one of the processes is Radeon Settings: Host Application and it's continuously sucking between 18% and 30% of available RAM (I have 8 GB ram)

Not sure what happened or what to do but something is obviously wrong. Anyone got any ideas?

thanks

Preferred Solution: PC VERY slow to wake up & Radeon Settings: Host Application

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.)

IBM Connect Direct application used for Host to Host connectivity has been picked up as a Trojan Virus by some Microsoft Security Products including Defender, System Centre Endpoint Protection, System Centre Endpoint
Protection 2012 and Security Essentials.

The result is that Connect Direct is deleted by the security software.
Question: What will be the implication of excluding this from the security policy?

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

Answer:SVC Host.exe application error

Some issues may be malware related, but most are not. Often it is due to buggered Windows Updates.

You can test this by running services.msc and double clicking Automatic Updates and setting the startup mode to disabled and reboot.

If that seems to end the error, follow the instructions here:

I have an application which always worked fine under XP, however now I've got a new laptop with Vista I've got one small(ish) problem.

The application should open with (and is correctly associated with) the HTML Application Host - which it does for about 1-2 seconds, but then the App Host closes, to be replaced by IE instead - and, in fact, two instances of IE - both with the 'click on bar to allow blocked content' message.

Is there anyway that I can stop IE overriding the HTML App Host ?

Cheers for any suggestions.

Hello everyone,

Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place, I'm new here.

So, here is the issue: I just recently installed Windows XP Pro, SP3 on my gaming PC. It dual boots with Windows 10, done through separate partitions.

Since I don't have drivers for XP, I am attempting to use Driver Pack Solution to install the needed drivers, or that is, compatible versions of them. It's a great program, and I've used it in the past on similar projects with great success. Since I don't yet have a network driver, I'm using the offline version.

However, whenever I try and open the program, I get the following error: "Windows HTML Application Host encountered a problem and needs to close". I'm not sure how to get around this. I'm thinking about trying older version of the software, but would appreciate everyone's input on the matter.

In case it helps, the latest version of Driver Pack Solution is 17.7.58. I've also listed my specs below.

Intel Core i-7 6700K Processor
Gigabytes GA-H110M-A Motherboard
Geforce GTX 1060 Graphics Card
West Digital Blue Caviar 1 TB Hard Drive

(I know, the motherboard components lack official XP support, that's why I am using DPS)

I already have the supported driver for the graphics card, however it will not currently install because it cannot currently detect the graphics card (presumably because other drivers are needed first).

A big thanks to everyone for their help!

About every 30 to 40 minutes, it gives a "hiccup" and a message appears saying: "Application Host Service has stopped working." At the same time the icon for Panda Protection, my AV, briefly shows a red X which goes out after about 5-7 seconds. I press "Close" and thing's proceed normally until the next occurrance....these periodic interruptions can go on all day.
On the other computer, which runs Windows 7, I always have to manually start the Windows Firewall and Windows Defender, and Defender seems quite reluctant to do so at times.  Once on, they stay on. I vaguely remember this began when I started to use Panda as my AV.
Haven't received any Windows Updates on the older computer since a year ago last August, and don't think it, Windows Defender, is even active, although I still scan with it. Needless to say I don't use it for any browsing where security is a must, but scans with my other security programs including MBAM and Hitman Pro show I haven't picked up any malware on it. And Panda never finds anything either.

A new installation of the graphics card driver and Catalyst Control Center did not change. Instead, a standard graphics card driver from Microsoft is installed.

So it is reproducible.

Do you get this display driver update from Windows Update?

If yes restore the system to an earlier point and disable this display driver update and choose only the important updates from Windows. That?s enough.

Otherwise you could try to run CCleaner. It can clean and fix registry problems.

I just bought a new Samsung 850 SSD and cloned my Windows 7 OS (all went perfectly). Two issues, one is that I configured my pc to reflect the nature of a SSD by adjusting Virtual memory settings, turning off Hibernation, etc. I was nervous about wearing out the SSD. These are virtually the only changes I have made and now the PC awakes almost immediately after I put it to sleep.

I first used the Samsung Magician software to configure the OS and also tried manual settings using this article.
Storage talk: Understanding your solid-state drive - CNET

Could it be that after setting the Virtual memory to a smaller size, windows cannot sleep anymore? Ive tried all the various other basics like editing the advanced sleep options, disabling wake timers etc. Thoughts?

Second issue is that my mapped drives from a NAS (synology) show the "red X" after a restart/reboot? If I click on them, they load right up! Ironically one out of the 3 mapped folders loads perfectly, the other 2 do not???

Hi!I have trouble finding all the places where power management settings for the network card can be modifyed (Windows, BIOS, Lenovo software...). In device manager my settings to allow Wake on LAN (Power management tab of the NIC) are overridden after every reboot, making Wake on LAN unusable (The checkbox 'Allow this device to wake up the computer' get automatically unchecked). In BIOS and Power manager everything is set to allow Wake on LAN, at least I think so, but there is obviously something I'm missing, so I'm asking for you help to find what. I've googled a lot, but with no results :-(. I have the same problem on SL500 and R61 running WinXP.

Answer:power management settings shutdown Wake on LAN

After the last Access Connections update the checkbox does not uncheck itself anymore. However WOL works only a few minutes after shutdown, after that I cannot wake the PC anymore using WOL. It is as if the PC turns off the NIC completely after some time being turned off.

Windows 10 overrides bios settings for wake-up.

I have set in bios to wake up on ctrl-esc.
That works until I boot into windows 10.
Now when I shut down windows 10, my computer will
wake up on ANY keyboard event or mouse event.
OK so then I uncheck in windows:
power management->allow this device to wake up the computer.
Now the problem is that when windows shuts down, it turns off
the keyboard totally so it is impossible to send keystrokes.


All this time my settings in bios are:
don't power up from mouse
powerup on ctrl-esc ONLY

In windows 7 I don't have this problem, everything works
as set in bios.

My computer is not in sleep or hibernate.
Another thing to note is that when I power it up
by clicking any key ,and then power it down on the switch
next time it will only start on ctrl-esc.

(hybrid sleep is off)


Many thanks.

Answer:Windows 10 overrides bios settings for wake-up.

OK I figured it out.
I need to disable "fast startup".
Everything works fine now.

But if I wanted fast startup , is there a way to
choose which key wakes up the system?

I am having trouble with my computer. A message pops up that Catalyst control center: host application has stopped working. And my PC will inform me when it is working. So I try to restart but it says that the host application is preventing the computer from restarting even though I know that it is not turned on. The problem is that it slows down my computer and even after I think I have solved it it goes back to not working. The problem has caused me to not being able to use the internet. Also on occasion, when attempting to restart or shut down it took longer than 10 hours (I did not wait for it to complete I then manually shut it down).
i have tried resetting it to a date where my computer functioned fine several times but it only solves the problem for a short period.

Answer:Catalyst control center: host application has stopped work

I suggest you find exact model of that "amd Radeon HD" And download last version of driver for that particular GPU. Download Drivers that uninstall old driver (it will offer it when starting driver installation) and install it.

I just purchased two HIS HD 5670 video cards and installed the hardware and drivers with no problems. Where I am getting a problem is with the Catalyst Control Center. It will not open. Every time I try to open it, I immediately get a windows error which says Catalyst Control Centre: Host has stopped working. I've tried uninstalling every piece of ATI software on my computer, re-installing, different versions of the software, etc. Nothing fixes this issue. My graphics work just fine, but I cannot get in to change the settings or turn on Crossfire. It is very frustrating and I have tried everything I can think of short of re-installing windows. I'd prefer not to do that. Here is the info from the error message. Can anyone help?

Initially some plenty of weeks ago (2-4 months), when IE11 hangs began, I thought it was my laptop's mouse faulty. Changed 3 of them to use, changed batteries,  initally seemed to resolve IE 11 hang problems. Subsequently, doesn't seem changing mouse was the way.

Hi dude?

To be honest I never meet such error message on my two different notebooks with an ATI graphic chip but I searched a little bit in the internet and it seems that this error would appear on different systems. Vista and Win 7?
It seems that it could appear on desktop PCs or notebooks? so it?s not easy to say why this happens but I found a interesting comment in other forums?

_Someone wrote this:_
+To fix this issue, I use the following steps.+
+Navigate to c:\ and right click on Users. Select properties. Under the General tab, look at the bottom for the Hidden selection. If there is not a check mark in the box, place a check mark there. Hit apply, select yes to apply to all subdirectories. If you clicked ok, you may notice that it disappeared from the right pane once it finishes. It should still be listed under the tree on the left. Right click on it again. This time remove the check mark and apply to all subdirectories. Once it has finished, your files in the Users directory should reappear and Catalyst Control Center should function normally again.+

Hope this could be helpful for you!

Erm hi. Last night my PC was absolutely fine, and today it seems to be completely broken.

I turned the computer on today and received a "malware detected" message from Avast antivirus. I tried to move to chest/delete and the message kept popping up. I looked up NewDot malware on the internet (which is what Avast was detecting) and it said that NewDot prevents access to the internet, which seemed about right as i was having to use my laptop to access the internet as the time, because the other computer wasn't working properly. It said that i could get rid of it easily my going to Add/remove programs and uninstalling it, which i did.

After this i restarted the computer and the loading time was exceptionally slow, i thought it had frozen, but it was just taking 5-10minutes to load. When it finally did load i tried to access the internet through a number of different browsers, but none of them would load. I tried to open some other applications too, and they wouldn't load either. I went to msconfig and disabled the majority of my startup items, and then restarted the computer. Once again the loading time was slow, and no applications would start. I then tried to do a defrag, but the program didn't work. Then i tried system restore, and the application didn't load, i came back to the computer 5-10minutes later and it had loaded, but it came up with an error that said something along the lines of "system restore is unable to protect your computer, please restar...

This seems to be what has happened to me, so i'm going to try the LSP fix utility available for download on that site. The problem is that this laptop has no floppy disk drive, and i don't have a UBS storage device available.

I was just wondering, if and when i do repair the LSP problems, could that be what is causing my system to run slowly? I hope so.

Answer:Network adapter settings to isolate vm from host

Hi there

Some sort of Switch / subnet probably required here with firewall settings also perhaps to block communications from the subnet.

I think this is more of a Networking issue than a VM one itself. The other question - do you still want the HOST to have access to the Internet.

I've only done this where I've had a SINGLE VM which needed Internet access for a "Dodgy site" --was testing a Virus and so I attached the NIC physically to the VM and disabled networking on the HOST while I was testing.

However if you need Internet and LAN access on the HOST and you have more than one VM running concurrently I should ask the Network gurus as this is outside my area of expertise. I suspect also you might need two Physical NIC's for this - one for the Host and one for the subnet your VM's are on - but I can't give any more help than that.

Try asking @Kari -- I'm sure he's done things like that but he uses HYPER-V which is also a good system if you have W10 pro or Enterprise.

Hi

I googled for this error message and found many people having this issue.
It?s not related to the notebook but to the driver?
Who knows why?.

Anyway, in most cases the people solved this by new driver Catalyst installation.
You should do this;

- update your Vista to the latest state
- remove the old Catalyst from the system
- remove/uninstall the graphic card driver from the device manager
- reboot the notebook and install the Catalyst and driver again

Should run!

This seems to be a common problem, as I have read many other threads addressing the same issue. I have tried all the suggestions from other posts, but my problem persists.

I just built my new PC two weeks ago, and everything seems to be running smoothly...until I loaded the first game: Far Cry.

The game installed without a glitch, but soon after I start playing it, the screen would black out for fraction of a second, then turn blue for about 250 ms, and then the system reboots. This happens everytime I play Far Cry, but the rebooting occurs at different parts of the game (but I never get too far). It usually happens about 1 to 5 minutes into the game.

The rebooting also occurs with my 3D OpenGL screensaver (Helios), but never with any other program. The browser (FireFox) never triggers the reboot, and neither do Paint Shop Pro or any other 2D graphics program.

From what I've read so far, some people who had the problem found a resolution by updating the motherboard driver and the graphics card driver (which I have done already). Some people suspect it's a power issue, but I have plenty of juice from my PSU.

Here is a complete spec list:

One thing I found handy with IM sure you know about is the Win Key +P key to switch between screens or to dup screens

Good luck and let us know how it goes

Hi! So for a few days now any search engine that I use will automatically redirect me to different websites that display my search keyword, but none of the sites are legit, which can be seen with one look. It got worse yesterday, with pop ups that dont let me close the page they came from, so I have to close the browser: either firefox 3.6.3 or IE 8. Re-opening the browsers does not help. Firefox will not re-open at all. It says that firefox is already open, and it must be closed inorder to open a new window. I cannot end the process using task manager and it does not appear in the applications list at all. IE does restart, but the redirecting still occurs. The redirecting has stopped today after I deleted a wierd IP address form the "hosts" file and made it read only with no System access. I also locked the hosts file using my firewall I think. I just dont want it to come back.

It also started to change the themes on my computer and took Vista and Aero out of the choices. My theme was changed to Windows Standard. I cant figure out if something triggers this or not. Windows gives an error message that Host Process has stopped and was closed. All of these issues are minor, but very annoying and I just want to make sure that something more devious isnt going on in the background on my laptop.

This is more of an annoyance than a problem but I thought I would post it and see what you guys think. So after updating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 I'm really liking the new OS except for one nagging issue. After installing the AMD driver package everything works fine for about a week or so then for some reason my system decides I don't need the Radeon Settings program and uninstalls it but leaves the drivers alone. Is there any reason why Windows would do this?

Hi guys i have just bought an ATI Radeon 9250 GFX card as my old Gforce FX5200 was playing up. When i try to play games they are too dark so i have gone inot the colour settings and the 3D settings on the card to try and fix the darkness but it does nothing to the colour on the game.

MY old card allowed me to brighten up the games that i wanted to play by adjusting the contrast etc, but when i try it with the Radeon nothng happens. It allows me to adjust the desktop colour but that is it.

I have tried various official drivers includng the latest ones but nothing changes. I dont really want to try unofficial drivers as they can sometimes make things worse so i was wondering before i do does anyone have any suggestions on what i can try.

I have tried uninstalling the card and the games but still have the problem.

Thanks

Mick

I have a Radeon 9200 and my old LCD just crapped out. I want to use a new wide screen monitor that suggests a setting of 1980x1050 and the highest setting allowed is 1280x1024. I have spent over an hour on ATI's site unsuccessfullly looking for any info that will allow me to upgrade the drivers to get a higher setting? I tried to call but they are closed for the holiday. I don't even know if it is possible to upgrade the drivers to get a higher resolution setting. So basically my question is will upgrading a driver get me a higher resolution or do I need to get a new video card? Thanks for any input. GD

I would HATE to reformat disk and start over but i will if all else fails . any one have any ideas ?

Answer:Really really really slow after wake up

It could be a normal occurrence. Modern computers have so many "chores" to complete, running in the background isn't unusual. If it only happens some of the time after "awakening" it's not serious. Also FYI, check out an article on computer sleep vs. hibernation.

Unless you have some crazy resolution I'm gonna say you will be more than fine . Hopefully it'll be properly supported out of the box; this is a major release though so I'd imagine any issues would be addressed very quickly.

I've been running with my new system now (that I've made a few posts about) for a while and it plays games great but I believe that my Radeon HD 5870 is having some heating issues because when playing games they seem to just freeze on me at random points. I encountered this several times today while playing Dragon Age: Origins and Borderlands. How can I change the fan settings and what settings would you recommend for the HD 5870 and my system to be running at adequate temps?

System specs:

Corsair 750W PSU
Intel Corei7 920 2.66ghz quad-core CPU
Diamond Radeon HD 5870
1TB Western Digital HDD
Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card
ASRock X58-Extreme MB
6gb OCZ DDR3 1600 Ram
 

Answer:Solved: Recommended fan settings for Radeon HD 5870?

Your case? Case fan sizes, airflow, and placement?
Ati Catalyst Center is a good utility to use for fan speed adjustments if you already have it installed with the driver package. If not... You would probably want to get it.
For the speed, something like 50-60% should be well enough to keep any card cool enough in any at least decently cooled case in any game. Except maybe S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat. Most graphics demanding game (not to say absolutely significantly most impressive) I've ever played. Haven't played Crysis on higher than medium settings though, and never will.

Hello,

When my laptop wakes up from stand-by or from hibernation mode, it pops up this dialog box asking me to

"Please choose which application should receive the image"

and has a list of applications below (currently):

"Imaging
Microsoft Office Word
Photoshop
Picasa2"

This also happens when I attach an external monitor to my laptop. The pop-up window goes away regardless if I select an application and click OK or click Cancel, and its the same behavior - the window goes away and nothing further happens. Its not a major problem, as everything works fine, but its just annoying. If anyone knows what's going on and how this can be fixed, I'd appreciate a reply.

Attached is a screenshot of the pop-up window.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-SR190E laptop computer, purchassed in December 2008. I have Windows Vista Service Pack 2 installed, and I have most of the updates installed--save for IE 8 and the Microsoft Office 2007 SP that was released a month or so ago.

Anyway, I use screen-reading software (I am blind), and at times I need to change the system's text-to-speech voice for use with certain aplications (mainly the accessible iPod feature in iTunes, which uses the system's text-to-speech voice to generate spoken menus for the iPod), and for the last few months I have been unable to do anything in the control pannel>text to speech settings. I have three SAPI5 voices installed on my system, but none of them show up in the voice selection combo box. When I click the voice selection settings button, I get this error message: "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped
working
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem..."
My only option is to close the message and then I end up back n the control pannel.

I have looked on Google for general rundll32 errors, and most of the forum topics I have found surround video software and such with Vista. In the c:\windows\winsxs folder, I have two files with names that include "rundll32", starting with "x86_microsoft-windows-rundll32...".

I've had my Dell monitor for about a year and it's been set to turn off after an hour. Until a couple of days ago I could move my mouse and it would come up. Now it takes a long time to "wake up" after I click the mouse.

The power settings are "turn off monitor" set at one hour; "turn off hard drives" set at one hour and "System Standby" after two hours.

I vary the monitor setting once in a while because sometimes it doesn't shut down at all.

A friend has his system standby set to "never" and swears that's the way to go.

Any suggestions about settings, etc. would be appreciated.

I found a thread about three years old on this subject but it did not answer my problem. I am using an HP desktop (new 10/06) with flat panel monitor. Recently, the monitor is taking a long time to wake up (2-4 minutes). After wake up, everything runs normally. The slow wake up occurs after sleep or on initial boot up. The PC will wake up and the blue light behind the monitor power button will start flashing slowly. During this time, I can open Aps, I just cannot see them. Eventually, the monitor wakes up and everything works fine. I checked for a new monitor driver but it said I was up to date.

Once woken, it runs quickly, and the laptop also wakes from sleep instantly if it's only been asleep a few minutes or so. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? I'm also running Symmatec antivirus, so I don't think there's any malware currently on the computer. Thanks

After a recent upgrade (a forced windows upgrade) this problem began. Not a W10 install but a periodic Windows upgrade. Prior to the upgrade there were no issues.

I have dual monitors and the #2 monitor takes 5+ minutes to wake up. It does this both from either a boot up or from a sleep wake up. Just a blank (dark) screen. Once it decides to wake up everything works normally.
Is there a setting somewhere to 'fix' this?

Hey guys,

1st, I'm running a dual boot system with both OS installed on my system drive (SSD).

I have hibernation disabled on both OS and I wake my PC with a key combo. (PS2 Keyboard)

When I wake Windows 7 I hit the key combo and immediately type in my password and hit enter before the monitor even wakes up. By the time the monitors come on Windows 7 is already fully awake and 100% responsive to input.

When I wake Windows 10 ......... I have to wait for the monitors to come on, then wait several seconds for something to come up on the main monitor. Some times it's the lock screen with the clock and weather, sometimes only with the clock. Sometimes it skips the lock screen and starts with the login screen. Sometimes it's a black screen that I click on and then I get the login screen. It never fails to wake, it's just slower then I'd like. This whole deal takes nearly 10 seconds which is an eternity to someone used to the PC waking faster then I can type in my password.

I'm just wondering if this is normal for windows 10.

Answer:Is your windows 10 slow to wake?

^ Nope. Mine is what you describe when you're in Windows 7
