100% cpu usage Log file inside

Question: 100% cpu usage Log file inside

Hi i am using windows vista ultimate 32 bit and yesterday my computer went incredibly slow for seemingly no reason so i opened task manager and saw that my CPU usage was at 100%,after looking through the list of processes to see what was being such a resource wh0re, i couldn't see any processes that were using alot of cpu power so i downloaded "Process Explorer" and found that my problem was something called "Hardware Interrupts" which was (and still is) using 88-100% of my cpu how can i fix this problem? PLEASE help as i am completely stumped by this one.oh,and by the way,the 100% cpu usage is constant from the minute my PC is turned on,even with no apps running it stays at a constant 100%.

Thanks,
Tom

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.)

Hello, We have gone to the website
http://www.salonrenovationmaisonneuve.com/en/exposants
and download the file to open Inside of IE. Once the file is open, none of the links either e-mail or web site works. However, if we open the same file Inside of Google Chrome, the links work. So, we want to know if we are missing something in IE or a plugin.
The PDF file opens with no problem but the links are not enabled. The file works in an Apple Machine and Google Chrome. However, if we download the file physically inside of the computer and then open the file with Adobe Reader, the links all work! Any ideas
how to solve this issue? Thanks Miguel Moreno

Relevance 52.89%

I have a Fujitsu 60gb
Fujitsu 60GB ATA - 6 Hard Drive - CA06531-B22200C1

I was wondering if i can get that to be used inside.
With SATA cables if possible?

Answer:External HDD for inside usage?

That looks like a laptop HDD... as far as I know you won't be able to use a laptop HDD internally in a desktop. Definately not with SATA cables, as that is an ATA interface (IDE), and not Serial-ATA (SATA).

Recently my computer started running extremely slow. When I check the task manager it notes that the CPU usage is spiked at 100%. I checked to see what is using most of the CPU and its "explorer.exe" using about 99%.

What can I do to fix this? Here is my HJT log.

Thank you for any assistance.

Hi,
I created a thread in the Windows XP support section of the board yesterday asking about a solution to my computer troubles. It can be seen here.
It describes my computer problems in detail.
I was advised by one of the tech hardware team to follow the instructions in the Virus Removal Help thread and then create a new thread here to make sure my PC is clean first.
I followed the instructions but unfortunately could not get "GMER Rootkit Scanner" to complete successfully like the instructions asked for; it ran for over 4 hours and then my entire computer screen suddenly went black and the machine automatically restarted by itself. I haven't tried running it again since that.
However, I did successfully complete the DDS scan...here are the results:

Answer:Advised to create thread here; DDS log inside (Explorer.exe crashing/CPU Usage 100%)

Hello lanimilbus,

Please run gmer.exe again, but use the following configuration: (it is a bit different from previous instruction)

In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ... Devices
Sections
IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)
Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries


Please attach the ark.txt in your next reply

HELP!My computer has become ridiculously slow, taking minutes to do nothing. The computer is quite old (4-5 years), but has had XP and MS Office installed fom Day 1. I have not added any other software which might explain the slowness.When the computer is slow, if I Ctrl:Alt:Delete, the CPU usage is sometimes very high (80%) or above, but not always, however, the Page file usage history is always at least 80/90% of capacity (value reads as nearly 400Mb).What is the page file usage history? Is this likely to be why my computer is slow and can any settings be changed, or do I have to bin the computer and buy one which works?Thanks

I have been having a big problem the last week with my computer. Everything is running incredibly slow. I opened the windows task manager, and it has shown very high CPU usage, often fluctuating between 80% and 100%, though sometimes staying between about 5-20%. The page file usage has been conistently high, the lowest being in the mid-600 kbs, while most often staying around 720 or 730 kbs. These patterns seem to be unaltered by the amount of programs I have running (the problem occurs even when there are absolutely no programs running) or whether I'm on the internet or not. I am very ignorant when it comes to computers, but I suspected it was some sort of spyware problem. However, after scanning with Norton 360, Spybot's Search and Destroy, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, and Microsoft Defender, only a few low-level threats showed up, and fixing them led to no improvement in my computer's performance. The slow functioning seems to be directly related to the times when the CPU usage is high.

My OS is Microsoft XP. My processor is 1.73 GHz. I have 504 MB of RAM. I will attach my HijackThis log below. I hope I haven't forgotten any necessary information, but I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'm becoming very frustrated.

My question is a security question.
If someone has a file on his/her computer that contains personal/secure information, for example a text file that contains passwords and account numbers, or an audio recording of a conversation where account numbers and passwords were spoken out loud...  Is it possible for fragments of the secure file to end up getting stuck inside of another file or group of files on the same pc...making it possible for someone to reconstruct the secure file from the fragmented pieces and/or view its original contents?  Or could it be possible even for the entire secure file to somehow end up inside of another larger file on the same computer...making it easy for someone to view the secure information....(by the way I only used a text file or an audio file as an example...it could be any file containing secure data)...My simplified concern is this...If you have a file that contains information that you want to keep secure...is there anyway that pieces of this file, if not the whole file it self, could end up inside of another file or a group of files on the same computer that the file containing the secure information was created on?...thus making it a security risk to even share mp3s on a computer that ever had any secure information on it...since maybe there'd be a change ur credit card numbers and passwords might somehow end up in one of those mp3s that ur sharing in a peer to peer file sharing program online.....or do things not work like tha... Read more

Answer:Can a File somehow end up inside of another file/files

It all depends on the program you are using to access the files. For example, Windows (starting from XP) creates a hidden file thumbs.db that contains thumbnails of all the images inside a folder. If you delete the original pictures through some other program or command line, and do not open the folder in Windows Explorer, this file still stays there. If you share the folder, this file gets shared too. Your information gets leaked.
 
If you use a computer for banking online or shopping online (any kind of financial transaction), then do not ever use that computer for P2P file sharing.

I have received an mail that has a RAR attachment. The contents of the email are such that it can only have been written by someone who knows me, i.e. its not been generated automatically and the suggested contents could be useful to me. Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam. Is there any way I can view the contents of a RAR file without actually opening it and possibly exposing my PC to some sort of nasty surprise?

Answer:Looking inside a RAR file

I wouldn't risk it.
"Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam"
So is this someone you normally have no problem emailing? Seems funny if suddenly your emails are seen as spam. Have you tried sending a plain text email with no attachements to him?

Hi,

I am setting up a backup system for my pc, backsup to a remote machine via ftp. The files to backup will be compressed into a zip file and then backed up to the remote machine. My question is, if my pc gets infected with a virus and those files backed up to the remote machine, will the virus infect the remote machine as well ? (if the files are not unzipped on the remote machine & both machines running on windows Xp pro). Appreciate any help or suggestions in this.

Regards
Sudhi

Answer:Virus inside a rar or zip file

No, malware inside a ZIP or RAR file can't infect a machine, unless you extract the malware (and execute it).

So in your case, the simple fact of storing a ZIP backup on a remote machine will not infect that remote machine.

That's why malware researchers share malware samples in password-protected ZIP files.

Without using any Nero or file burning software, can Windows XP itself supports simple file copying to disc. Not that I know of, but i have a user who can do these.

1. select a file, right click and press SEND TO the burner
2. simply copy and paste the file to the burner
3. reopen a file on a disc, edit it, and then can save it back onto the disc.

Strange, anyone welcome to comment. Thanks.

Hi TimS -

If you had followed through on your last thread here we may have avoided another round of cleaning. Please see this through to the end, where you will be given valuable protection information once your system is clean.

I'm going to have you run some scanning tools first, then we'll go after whatever is left.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition

Hello .
I cant access my system volume information file on my hard drive. Spyware doctor has located a trojan there and blocked it on several occasions but I cant access the file to delete it. It says that access is denied. What do I do.
thanks

Answer:Help, cant access file with trojan inside

If you can boot into Safe Mode try deleting the file there. Safe Mode has a limited amount of applications running which makes it ideal for purposes like this.

I've asked that a Moderator move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where there are those that are more knowledgeable about these problems.

I got caught this morning. Hungover, tired, and just plain dumb.

"A friend" sent me a file. Supposedly some great an amazing pics of her new baby. On offer was a .zip file which I downloaded. Within there was a "picture" only it was xxx.jpg.xxx.com, so in fact it was really a .com file.

I ran this file (yes, I am dumb), and now my MSN sends out endless requests to other people to download these files from me which will infect them.

Perhaps my saving grace is that I use WinPatrol. When I ran this it detected changes to my registry startup areas which I told it to remove. Once I had rebooted I am no longer sending out nasty messages (so far, its hard to say exactly how often the messages are sent). However, the virus files are still on my machine in an unknown location.

I do still have the original infected file that I was sent which can be made available for analysis.

I am running XP Pro SP2, and use Eset NOD32 V3 with most recent updates. The bug went straight through this like a knife through butter. I have updated and recanned my machine both locally, and with Eset's online scanner. Nothing found. Eset misses the install files for the virus, and also the running virus (my friend's machine is still actively spamming the virus files out).

I have a fairly large Fortran 77/90 & C program, compiled using Compaq Visual Fortran 6 & Microsoft Visual C++ 6 under Win XP.  On a particular test case it generally executes ok when invoked outside a batch file, but always fails when invoked from a particular batch file.  It stops on a Fortran 90 Allocate statement, but does not return the STAT result coded into that statement.  Seems to relate more to how much storage has been allocated rather than to the particular array being allocated, because I can reorder the allocation of different arrays and the stop does not occur on the same array.Although this is a large body of code, the test case is small and should not be requiring a large amount of allocated storage.I have tryed cutting the batch file down to just the statements that occur before invoking the EXE file (which are SET /P, ECHO, COPY, DEL, IF EXIST), then running the truncated batch file, then executing the EXE outside the batch file.  The EXE also fails in that usage.Any ideas on what I should be looking for to fix this?

Answer:Certain file inside a program can't be deleted.. no matter what I do..

Before you delete anything else that you might actually want, try a system restore to before you had starry night installed.

If this does not help then post details of your system, the files you want to eliminate and the exact error messages.

For those of you who have been complaining about the perceived slowness of Vista file copy operations (And <insert deity name here> knows ther have been many), I now present to you a copy of Mark Russinovich's blog dated 4 February 2008.

In his blog, he provides in-depth details of how the copy engine works, and what improvments have been made to this engine in Vista SP1.

Happy reading!

----------------------
The original text for this post can be read in Mark Russinovich's blog at http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/
----------------------

Windows Vista SP1 includes a number of enhancements over the original Vista release in the areas of application compatibility, device support, power management, security and reliability. You can see a detailed list of the changes in the Notable Changes in Windows Vista Service Pack 1 whitepaper that you can download here. One of the improvements highlighted in the document is the increased performance of file copying for multiple scenarios, including local copies on the same disk, copying files from remote non-Windows Vista systems, and copying files between SP1 systems. How were these gains achieved? The answer is a complex one and lies in the changes to the file copy engine between Windows XP and Vista and further changes in SP1. Everyone copies files, so I thought it would be worth taking a break from the ?Case of?? posts and dive deep into the evolution of the copy engine to show how SP1 improves its performance.

SPDT.SYS used by daemon tools/alcohol and KeyMagic. Both.

Your computer was up for 2 plus days so it isnt happening frequently, and removing those two items may fix it.
Ken J

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

How do I encrypt a .txt file inside an Image so that when I change the extension of the Image into .rar and I open the rar file, there's a .txt file in it? This does work, you can try it yourself.

Hello folks. I'm trying to fix my mother's computer and needless to say it's in bad shape. The memory is being hogged like crazy and the only form of virus scanner i have at my disposal atm is housecall. What's weird is the terms don't load for me to continue, but hijack this works. Here's the log from safe mode. I'm going to restart and run it normally and see if there are differences. ty in advance.

I'm recently noticed that some zip files that I store images on contain some empty image files "0 KB".
I'm just wondering if anybody knows of a quick way to scan a bunch of folders each with several zip each and then show which zip files contain empty files.

Thank you.

Answer:Check inside zip files for empty file

Use wither 7-zip or Winzip. Basic computing 101.

Hello,
I have a couple of computers set up in the network. They're all inside the same workgroup.
Every folder I share is visible by everyone.
Now I want to define permissions on only one folder which containes files only to be editable (modified) by, let say, one computer.
So I need to define special peermissions for this particular folder.
However I came accros to a problem. In network neighbourhood I can see all computers and their share folder and they see my shared files. But when I want to define special permissions on only one folder (one user can write and read, the rest is read only access), I cannot see other computers in the "Select user or groups" window just as shown in the attached picture.

One friend of mine told me that this is only possible when computers are on domain. It is really hard for me to understand that permissions cannot be defined for each folder and for each network user separately.

Can you give me any advice?

Thanks
 

Answer:File and folder permissions inside workgroup

Permissions are configured for local users on the machine, not network users or machines.

If you are on Windows 7 x64 sp1, just go here in regedit;

and export the services subfolder and paste it up in a reply!

Just upgraded to Windows 8 and I'm having an issue I never had in Windows 7. Whenever somebody sends me an archive (.zip, .rar, etc.) that contains file names that are in Japanese, they always appear garbled (文字化け).

1. I am using Outlook 2010
2. This happens through both WinRAR and Windows' native unarchiving program.
3. The file name of the archive itself (also in Japanese) is not garbled, just the file names inside.
4. I have the Japanese language pack (Windows IME) installed on top of this U.S. version of Windows 8, but setting Japanese language priority higher than English (through Control Panel/language) does not fix the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas how I might fix this issue, as right now I have to boot back into Windows 7 to unzip any Japanese archive.

Answer:Japanese file names inside archives getting garbled

Anyone have any ideas?

How do I make Windows 7 search inside of file contents on a removable device?

I have a flash drive with a few hundred spreadsheets on it, in .xls format. I need to search for words that are located inside of the spreadsheets. How do I do that?

Note: I have set my indexing options to search the contents of .xls files - this flash drive is probably not indexed, as it is only occasionally plugged into this machine. I am looking for a way to make Win7 search inside of files without having to index the thing.

Answer:How to search inside file contents on removable device?

Hello Dizzious, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but you will not be able to add removable locations to be included in the index anyway.

An alternative, is to select the flash drive in Computer or Windows Explorer, and search it from there instead.

Hope this helps,

dim result as integer

result =  Shell("C:\Application2.exe " & MYPASSWORD , vbHide)I was asking myself if it was secure to store a password as a constant inside an application.Once the code is compile and transform to binary format, is it possible that a hacker retreive this password with some kind of password recovery tool.Thanks.

Answer:Is it safe to store passwords inside binary file?

Yes if you have the password stored in a file, then it would be possible to reverse engineer that file and gain the password.

I'm using avira and I just backed-up my system. I plan to format my hard drive and before restoring it, I'd like to scan the backup file (.bkf) just to make sure that my pc's really really clean. Will it be able to detect if the backup file has viruses?

In the same sense, how about spyware, will antispyware tools detect spyware inside a backup file?

thanks
 

Answer:will antivirus programs be able to detect viruses inside a backup file?

I'm not sure if this will work but you would have the scanner scan the .bkf file and maybe it could. Even If It could detect I'm not sure if it would remove it because It would be already a compressed version. I would have tried to remove malware before you backed up your system.

Hey guys!

If anyone could take a look at the .dmp file, it would be much appreciated.

I get a random BSOD at any random time.

Thanks!

*If you change the file to ".dmp" instead of ".txt" it SHOULD work.*

Answer:[SOLVED] Vista 64bit BSOD (Dump file inside)

Hi -

The dump has a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA - unknown hardware error

The only items of interest in the loaded driver listing is that your Marvell Yukon Ethernet driver needs to be updated -

Code:

I also noticed the very recent updates of ESET NOD32 and ATI video.

This message found in the dump -

Code:
*** Memory manager detected 1 instance(s) of page corruption,

Hey i'm hoping someone can translate these dump files for me and tell me what the problem is. I'm assuming it's the cpu but not sure why, my temps are fine and I opened up my case to allow more air flow and cleaned out the dust. Basically after playing for about 30min I get a BSOD.

I have a very simple network and recently upgraded to a GbE switch so my two primary machines are now connected via GbE. One machine runs Windows XP and one is Vista Premium.

I'm using ATTO to test the transfer speed between these two machines (from XP to Vista) and the speed seems incredibly slow.

Drive Z: in the picture is mapped to the Vista machine via CIFS (eg. \\HTPC\Storage).

The Vista machine has an IDE hard drive (ATA 133), but these speeds still seem rediculous.



As a comparison, here is the same test done locally on the Vista machine: (which still seems really, really bad)


 

Answer:Why is my XP to Vista network file transfer speed so incredibly bad? (picture inside)

This is a known issue with Vista. If you want speed, go with XP. If you want security, go with Vista. SP1 will dramatically increase network speed.

Hello, Is it possible to desactivate the inside screen of the Yoga 260 to work with two extern screens without adding an extern graphic card or a dock. The 260 has a hdmi output but Lenovo provide also an adaptator that allowed you to connect a vga monitor. Unfortunatly when you use the vga output, the hdmi is automatically desactivated. That seems normal as the Intel graphic card do not support 3 screens. But what if you could turn of the inside screen? Can't we allocate the graphic card only to the two outside screens ? Thanks a lot and sorry for my english. R.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Yoga 260 : Turn off inside screen to allocate the inside graphic card on two extern screens.

Your English is fine. I was hoping someone with direct experience would reply. I don't have a machine here with that chipset to test on. I have one coming, but it will be a while. I am not suggesting that you take apart your new machine and risk breaking something, but I am a little crazy and if I had this question, this is what I would try: I would remove the bottom cover and temporarily disconnect the LCD cable. I would figure that if the VGA and HDMI would not both work at that point, it was hopeless and give up. If it did work I would start reading about chipset options

Hi All...
I will explain what I need in as much detail as possible.
I need a batch file to move specific files into a separate folder,possibly by opening my hex editor,searching for the word "body" ( without the quotes ) and if found ,close hex editor,move file to a folder called "moved" ,then go on to the next one.If the word "body" is not found just close hex editor and ignore the file.
I have approx 900 files in a folder.One is a vehicle and one is a map for a game.They are mixed together and the only way of telling them apart is by opening each one with my hex editor and search for the word "body",which means it is a vehicle.If the "body" word is not found,it is a map.Example wording of the files: mapname.idf carname.idf
Manually this process would take hours,even days.
It would be a lot better if there is a way of doing this without using the hex editor/batch idea.
Here is a link to one map and one vehicle file if needed for an example:

I've been backing up "My Documents" with CDBurnerXP because

1. I consider Windows Backups to be opaque and I prefer to keep them simple and to know what is going on
2. Windows Backups does some things I believe are risky so I will not use it
3. Windows 7 had a deep directory structure problem and I presume Windows 8 continues to
4. It's ridiculous to backup "Windows" when I really only care about the safety of my data and since I am a slow typist who can't type at 3 Gigahertz it seems unlikely that I will ever have produced enough data that won't fit in one piece of optical media
5. I prefer to use a backup medium that has no moving parts and no firmware and humidity and mechanical shock resistant and contains no software and nothing vendor specific and blank DVDs are one such medium
6. I don't understand how a "backup DVD" can get scratched if there are never children and animals in the building (movie DVDs are a different matter)

Unfortunately, I can't continue down this route because my Windows 8 is now inside VirtualBox and I can't seem to make CDBurnerXP and Windows 8 recognize a blank DVD as a suitable target for a backup.

I am looking for suggestions for DVD burning software that is free and is known through your personal experience to work inside VirtualBox.

Answer:can I burn a DVD from inside Windows 8 inside VirtualBox

I can't comment on VirtualBox, but the most popular free burning program is Imgburn. Although I have Nero burning software, I find the Imgburn to be easier to use for iso CD's and DVD's.

The Official ImgBurn Website

I also use Macrium for backing up my PC's, but I back up to separate hard drives, not DVD media. There is a free version of Macrium.

Question: Paging File Usage

Hey guys, whats up?! I have a simple question. No matter how much RAM I get, I always end up having Page File Usage. Right now I have Win98SE, and I have my usual 320Mb of RAM, but I'm still getting 60Mb of Page File Usage (virtual memory, right?). How can this be? Windows 98 only needs 16Megs at minimum, and I'm only running Att worldnet and Imesh, and this explorer windows. What the fudge?! My picture is below, for the first time ever! This is me 2 years ago though, I don't have any new pictures.
 

Answer:Paging File Usage

There are couple of things that you didn't had a chance to mention...
1. Did you had a chance to use the msconfig and see what programs you are loading in the same time with windows?
2. How about the config.sys and autoexec.bat ? Did you had a chance to take a look and "streamline"
3. How about the virtual memory? Did you had a chance to give a fixed value? For instance Min =256 and Max=256 ?
4. Defrag the disk lately?
5. Is windows "seeing" all of 320 megs of RAM ?

The information below is on my mother's computer. We are trying to determine two things. Why has the computer become so slow, when no new programs/software has been added. Also, if it would be more cost effective to upgrade this computer or to purchase a new system? This computer has become increasing slow, and is to the point where it is practically not usuable. We have removed all programs/etc that were not needed, deleted temporary internet files, temp files, etc..but still can not seem to make an improvement in the performance.

When you go to "Control Panel>System" it says:
Compaq Presario 4704, MS Windows 95, Pentium 133MHz, 16MB RAM, C:Hard Drive 1607MB (565MB free).

When you go to "Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information" it says:

GDI Memory Available: 89%

What could be causing the memory to be 0KB and it to be swapping so much?

Thank you
 

Answer:Swap File Usage 72% ?!?!?!

Hi, TxJessy

[tsg=welcome][/tsg]

It's nearly impossible to help diagnose any problem without a lot more information. To begin with you should run an anti-virus program to make sure you are "clean". You should also run something to remove ad/spy-ware. Then, if you want to provide more details for us you should run StartupList, copy the report, and post it back here in your thread.

More cost effective ? A 133mz machine is pretty much a dinosaur nowdays. You will never be able to upgrade it to act like a current model - and even the current models will be out of date soon. I would NOT spend good money upgrading the machine you currently have.

Intel Q9550
Windows 7 Pro
2x2GB RAM

A video file is causing windows explorer to use 97% RAM and 100% CPU.
Navigating to the folder where the file is stored alone causes this problem.
The problem will persist after I have closed the folder.
I think this started after I renamed the file without the .mkv extension.
After changing it back, I now cannot change, move or delete the file.
It just says "File is open is windows Explorer".
Entering safe mode eliminates the RAM/CPU problem, but the file still cannot be deleted, moved or changed.
Strangely, despite all these problems, the file plays just fine.
Besides renaming the folder it's in and never opening it again, I don't know what to do.
 

Answer:Video file causes 100% Ram Usage

I still don't know exactly why the video file brought my powerful computer to it's knees.
I got rid of the file by moving every other video out of the folder, restarting, then deleting the containing folder.
Windows explorer said it was deleting 3 items, not one, so the file was definately, off.
I really hope nobody else experiences this problem.

Hello and Happy Holidays!!!!

Is the Swap File what is used to "borrow" ram from the "storage" memory? i. e. Accessing the "Virtual Memory"

If so, then in Task Mgr., if the available never goes to zero, is the Swap File never being used and your virtual memory not being utilized?

If a computer was "born" with 512MB and 1GB was added.....Once the "available" goes below 1GB, are you using the purchased memory and therefore not driving the swap file crazy which you would have been doing if the additional 1GB had not been purchased?

Hope this makes some sense as obviously I do not know what is actually going on.

Answer:Swap File Re---ram Usage.....

The answer is yes....and no.First, the computer will generally prefer the RAM over the swap file. Some of the names for it are Pagefile, SwapFile, Virtual Memory, and pagefile.sys. It's actually stored in the pagefile.sys on the root (C:\ in most cases) of your hard drive.But, there are some processes and programs that require the pagefile. Usually they do this to load less essential tasks into the pagefile - which will then free up RAM for the more intensive things that they consider necessary.Try this link for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_memoryThe introduction is a bit confusing, so skip down to the section headed "Background".

The CPU usage on my Windows 7 desktop is 100%. I have used Process Explorer to determine an avp.exe file is responsible for 94- 98% of the usage. This file is supposedly from Kaspersky 2011 Anti virus. I attempted to end the process on task manager to see if the CPU usage would go back down, but received a message that access was denied. When the computer is first started it runs well and the CPU usage ranges from 40-50%, but after running a few minutes the CPU usage hits 100%. The computer slows down considerably and programs stop running. It takes in excess of 24 hours to run any spyware or virus scans and no threats have been found. Should I uninstall Kaspersky? Or could some other problem be causing the high CPU usage?

Answer:High CPU usage from avp.exe file

I'd definitely reinstall Kaspersky.

Question: Page File Usage

Ok i do some things about my PC. I have broken it enough times to know it pretty well :PMy question is why the hell is my Page Usage so high? It usually is at a steady 350mb but checking it today it had zoomed up to 1.16gb! I ran Spyware Terminator on fast scan for a quick check up and the processes seem fine. So i restarted the PC, same problem. I tryed checking my RAM usage using Innovative System Optimizer. It had only 250mb out of 1gb free so i tryed to free up space using the tool provided with the software.... this was a disaster! It locked out the computer and so i turned it off.Now i realised that i had to locate the problem. I have an external hard drive linked to the computer, so i turned it off and restarted. Here i am now with no problem. Well none i can see because i cannot check the RAM using that program, it was on the E: drive.Ok simply put, what is happening? It seems like a huge program is maxing out the RAM.

Hi Guys,

I've posted this previously, but may have been in the wrong section .. not quite sure what it falls under.

I'm using IE 7 and usually have 3 maybe 4 applications running at once .... nothing the system can't handle.
I use gmail, so a lotof the time that's open on one browser tab, and quite a lot of the time im using the gmail chat facility that allows you to chat with your other gmail contacts while logged into the mail service.
Inevitably, i get the message that windows is running lo on virtual memory, even though the system shouldn't be under too much pressure.
When i check the task manager, the Page File Usage can be in excess of 1gig at times .. and yet, as soon as i close the browser window, it plumits all the ay back to 200 or so Mb's.

Can anyone tell me, is this normal ??
Is it the fault of IE 7 or is it the gmail service??

It no major emergency, but i'd still like an explanation as to whats happening !

Thanks in advance !

I currently have 768 megs ram on my computer, running winxp sp1. When I felt that programs were taking a long time to restore from the taskbar.

I found that my pagefile usage is 518megs, yet i have 400 megs free ram. Is there some setting that is wrong? Thanks.
 

Answer:page file usage

Where are you getting your 518MB figure from? Not from the task manager Performance tab I hope. The PF Usage figure in Task Manager IS NOT your real page file usage.

To find you real page file usage go to Start/Control Panels/Administrative Tools/Performance. Click the Add/+ button. Under Performance Object select Process and then in the selection list below that find and highlight Page File Bytes. Click Add

Find Page File Bytes in the list at the bottom and click on it. It will show the amount of page file in use.

Right now on my system Task Manager shows 218MB. While my actual page file usage is only 110MB.
But anyways its normal for the page file to be used. Any thing that has been idle for quite some time will be flushed out to the page file to make room for active applications. Don't worry about it. And don't disable or otherwise change the page file's settings.
