Cpu Usage - Google Documents


I would like to start by saying "i love windows 7!". I have an hp pavilion dv9720us which was originally purchased with vista home premium 32-bit. I did a clean install of windows 7 64-bit and added 2 gb of ram (total 4 gb). Other than a view driver problems, solved through the hp forums all as worked well except for one site i access frequently. A friend and i share documents via a google documents site and now when i try to access the site my cpu usage shoots up to 50-80% and the only option i have is to use task manager to get me out of the site. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

High Cpu Usage

I have searched the forums and the internet and even contacted microsoft customer support but cannot find any help. I upgraded from vista 64-bit to windows 7 64-bit home premium a couple of months ago. I guess i was the only person that never encountered a problem with vista so i was expecting a smooth transition to windows 7. The problem that i am experiencing with my hp desktop is very high cpu usage after some random period of low usage after it is first turned on. The cpu usage goes from a few percent to high 80’s to mid 90’s and everything slows down to a crawl.

This random period can go from minutes to days. Shutting the system completely down works most of the time. When checking task manager, no processes indicate high usage at all with processes running less than a few percentages after an initial spike after starting a program.

When i check "show processes from all users", the only high cpu usage is with system idle process and nothing else. I’ve redone the upgrade couple of times and then finally bit the bullet and did a clean install, but nothing helps. I’ve kept track of the processes and the services in task manager that are running when it is in low cpu usage and after it goes into high cpu usage and nothing changes. I’ve tried too many things on my own to mention here, but would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have. My hardware specs are as follows:

Amd phenom 9550 quad-core processor 2. 2 ghz
6 gb ram
64-bit operating system
Nvidia  geforce 9100 graphics

Cpu At 100% Usage

I upgraded from vista to win 7 on release day and have had no problems until recently. Over the last few days, my cpu usage will spike up to 100% at random intervals and stay there for a long period of time. When i check task manager and show processes from all users, services.exe is fluctuating anywhere from the low 50 to low 70% in usage. When the computer is running normally, services.exe is around the high single digits. I've uninstalled and programs that i installed immediately prior to the problem happening (and it's happening again as i type this) and i've run comprehensive virus/malware scans using microsoft security essentials and the eset online scanner.

Both found some adware stuff and removed it, but no virus or serious malware issues. This has been going on for several days and has made my computer almost unusable, and i'm at a dead end for what to do or where to look next. I hate to to a reinstall because the original install was so recent, so any advice i can try to avoid starting over would be great.

Cpu Usage High

I'm a fairly experienced computer user, and have a basic understanding of computing theory. I was wanting to propose an idea about the high cpu usage in windows 7 and see if anyone with a deeper understanding could tell me if i'm looking this in the right way. Not only have i had high cpu usage, but my ram is running at a constant 50-60% as well. I have a pretty cheap setup, only running a 1. 8ghz amd athlon and 2 gb of ram. However in my laptop which only has about half the
Computing power and yet doesn't have this high usage. So here's my question.could the high usage issue be in the fact that the system bus takes up more resources to operate.

Meaning say for example, and only for example as i know it's not this simple, a 32 bit system with 2gb ram uses 512mb of ram while idling, shouldn't a 64-bit system need 1gb of ram while idling?  Again, i know that usage percentages aren't set in stone like that, but i was hoping to simplify my hypothesis/question enough for you (the readers) to understand what i'm asking. If this does sound like a reasonable suggestion, could anyone tell me how i might go about testing it in order to prove my theory. I may just be looking at the meaning of 32 and 64 bit all wrong, and if so can someone please explain it to me better?

Cpu Often Goes Up To 100% Usage

Often, i turn on my computer and it slows down a lot when i get to the login screen. It hangs on the "please wait. " Screen for a minute until finally letting me log in and then goes to the "welcome" screen and hangs for a minute more until it finally pulls up my desktop. The cpu usage stays at 100% for a while. Sometime it goes down to a normal level, but other times it will stay there until i restart my computer (which usually leads to the same thing).

I used malwarebytes' to check to see if i had any viruses, malware, spyware, whatnot and it came up clean. I defragged my computer and that didn't work, i looked to see if there was a program eating up the cpu and there wasn't and then i tried anti rootkit and that found nothing. So, i am pretty *** right now because i have yet to find a solution.

Dumprep.exe Causes 100% Cpu Usage

Whenever a  program is "not responding", i'll hit "end task"in "task manager", then another window opens up with a choice to select "end now" and it'll take forever for it to terminate. Meanwhile, i cannot do anything else as task mgr shows 100% cpu usage. I notice dumprep.exe is causing the 100% cpu usage and i can only wait until it completes whatever it is doing. Most often, i'm waiting several minutes. I'm not sure what started this problem as in the past i never recalled this happening.

Cpu & Memory Usage On 100% Even With No Programs Running

My new laptop with windows 7 pre-installed is running slow. Task manager shows cpu usage and memory usage at or nearly always on 100% even with no programs running. Checked out various user forums and tried using the tools within win7, but no joy.

Opening Program Will Start Run32dll.exe, Raise Cpu Usage

Opening an older program will start run32dll.exe, raise cpu usage, but not successfully start the selected program while running windows 7 x64. Up until this point, i have had no problems with windows 7. My system came installed with it, and i have recovery discs (although not with me right now, more to follow). I installed a program the other day and set it for win 98/me compatibility mode.

After executing the program, run32dll.exe would start and while cpu usage would go up to 80-90, the selected program would not start. Is run32dll corrupted (viruscan and anti-spyware programs run)?  Do i need to reinstall windows 7 (i have a valid product key, can i use someone else's disc and my product key)? Can i just get a copy of run32dll and drop it into the windows system folder?

**Yes, i know that i should have the operating discs with me, but i'm currently part of the haiti relief effort and didn't really have time to pack. I don't have access to them, and i'd rather fix this than use the evil restore portion of my hd.

Cannot Google

Running ie8 under windows 7 on a realtively new dell computer. Whenever i type something in ie8's search box next to the url/address box i get the error below. If i click on 'here' in the last sentence the search goes through. This is starting to be annoying if i use bing from the search box everything works fine. If i use firefox, everything works fine. It only happens with ie8 & the search box. I can go to google.com and it works fine from there.

Google error forbidden your client does not have permission to get url /custom?Cx=partner-pub-5975212467994412%3a4afwhv-2bm2&ie=utf-8&q=internet+explorer from this server. (Client ip address: 98. 162. 216. 240)

We apologize for your inconvenience, but this request could not be processed. Please click here to continue your search on google.

Cannot Get To Google

Since last monday, i haven't been able to get to the main google search page. I can still get to maps, videos, and a couple other pages, but if the address starts with www.google.com, i can't get to it. What makes this really frustrating is it works just fine on another (very old) computer in the house that's hooked up through the same router (at&t), so i know it's not the connection. It's this computer. I've even scanned for malware and nothing came up. I have no idea what else to do.

P. S. I have ie 8 and windows xp sp3.

Cannot Remove Google Redirect Virus

There is apparently some kind of virus that is causing google and yahoo (also bing) search result links to be redirected to unrelated sites or spam sites. I did a full scan with kaspersky internet security and also with windows defender - both had updated databases but neither detected the problem. I have the same issue with both internet explorer 7 (xp with all security updates) and firefox.

The symptom is when you do a search on google or yahoo, then click on one of the results, you are taken to a page other than the one specified in the link, usually a page about a completely different topic or a spam site. Other people have reported the same issues on various blogs but not clear solution. How can i find and remove this virus?

Browsers & Mail - Google Search Results In Blank Window

This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When i do a google search, i'll get the first page of results no problem. If i click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that. Refreshing the page doesn't do anything either. I can open the search results themselves no problem, but anything that involves further searching from the first page doesn't work. This just happens in ie9, it works normally in firefox no probs. Also, this is only happening on my windows 7/64 laptop. On my windows 7/32 desktop all is a-okay.

I've tried emptying the temporary files/cookies etc. With ccleaner, and tried it in private mode as well where the cache and cookies are bypassed. Finally i then tried resetting ie (tools > internet options > advanced > reset). No dice. I can drag page links from the results page up to the tab bar and drop them there and they will open that way (in other words, to go to the next page of links i can click and hold the "next >" link or one of the page numbers at the bottom, drag it up to the tab bar and release and the next page will open in a tab. )

Memory Usage Goes Up

When i starting the windows (in the first few hours) everything is normal but after 1 day or 2 (sooner or later) the amount of available memory gradually goes down and the physical memory usage increasing. This increasing, continues until the memory usage reaches near the 88% and at that point , there isn't any memory available to operate any software . Also when memory reaches that point, i can't access any drive in the hdd; because everytime i want to open any folder, the following error appears :

C: is not accessible. Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service. At this point, i even can't shutdown or restart windows normally; i must restart windows manually by pressing the restart button. After restart, everything goes to normal again; but this problem appears again and again. (I had to restart windows every 1 or 2 days)

Here is the screen-shots of processes and performance tabs in the task manager (at 88% memory usage)
You can see that there is no software(application) that uses this amount of memory :

http://photoserve. Nl/v.php?Id=786204.jpg
http://photoserve. Nl/images/786204.jpg

I already did the following actions but unfortunately none of them helped me:

0- using some optimizing and freeing softwares like (memory booster gold - ram saver pro - cleanmem)
1- scanning my computer with antivirus and antispywares
2- changing antivirus software
3- updating windows with all updates available via windows update
4- updating drivers of all hardwares
5- downloading and installing the following hotfixes that are related to memory leak:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978042
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978155
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979223

6- using cclenaer for clearing everything and using memtest86+ for finding any possible error in memory. And here is screen-shot from process explore (from sysinternals suite) at 90% memory usage :

http://photoserve. Nl/v.php?Id=8885391.jpg

So is there anything that i can do to solve this problem? Any solution? Hotfixe? Trick? Suggestion? Anything?

Win 7 Memory Usage

I am noticing a weird behavior in my windows 7 since last 2 weeks. I have 4gb ddr2 ram in my laptop and when starting, windows gadget shows the usage to be 26%. After however 2-3 hours of usage, even when all the programs have been shut down, the gadget shows the memory usage to be 40-45%. A few percentage (2-3) higher wouldn't have worried me. But this difference is a bit too much i feel. What could be the probable cause for this? Any idea or any help to diagnose the problem would be much appreciated. To add, there hasn't been any recent changes in my laptop except for regular windows updates. Also i haven't run any diagnostic tools yet.

Media Player 12 Memory Usage

I installed windows 7 professional 64 bit from a 32 bit vista home prem system and have encountered memory usage problems. Basically, the longer i have windows media player open, the more ram it uses, in other words it keeps increasing until i close it. I reinstalled win7 and found that the problem went away, however, once i updated windows 7 the problem came back. Before i updated, the usage was low, in the 20, 000k range and when i updated it turns on at 30, 000k and increases dramatically. Should i install 32 bit windows 7 or does anybody have a solution?

My system is a dell xps 420 q6600 2. 4 ghz, 4 gb dual channel ddr2 ram

Over Heating And Physical Memory Usage

I have 2 month old hp dv6-1217ax lap top with 4gb ram, i have just installed my windows 7 and now have a problem with over heating - the bios set the fan to be 'on' always which i have changed and i have also found that stacsv.exe (something to do with audio) was chewing up 50% of the cpu so i have ended that process - temporarily until i have to restart. This hasn't affected my audio but i have noticed that when i use the mute function on my laptop the little speaker indicator above the key pad is not turning red but the mute function is still working.

The other issue i am having is that my physical memory is running at a constant 35%? While not running any programs and i haven't been able to find a solution to this.

I have also asked a tech friend who has been in contact with hp regarding these issues and they knew as much as he did - nothing.

I have also been in contact with hp myself and they instructed me to download and install a bois ( winflash for hp notebook system bios (for notebooks with amd processors) " microsoft windows vista-based version f. 17) this basically put my machine back to the same settings as when i had originally when i did the win 7 upgrade. Still got the high cpu usage with the stacsv.exe.

Ram Usage Issue - 100% Running

Recently (2-3 days) i noticed that almost all my ram was being used, but no process was using it. As i use stuff like maya, with its known memory leaks, i was somewhat alright with it. Having restarted (ram was now free), the problem disappeared. Within about ~10 minutes, ram usage was at close to 100% with nothing (well, very little) running. Here is a screenshot of the problem:
http://img687. Imageshack. Us/img687/2259/aggfdaggfdfgdfgd.png

I then attemped to clean up my boot, and with odd results. It seems like the ram issue has abated (left it overnight running, ram was technically "free". Upon further inspection, the ram, whilst free, is under "standby". What would use this kind of memory? Nothing was running overnight except task manager and resource monitor. I've tried removing programs and services from startup, and the issue still occurs. Does anyone have any insight onto either the full ram usage or the ram standbys possible causes?

System specs:
Win7 home premium x64
I7 email removed for privacy
Blade ddr3 6gb @ 1996
Samsung 128gb ssd
3x1tb f3 raid5
Gtx 295 (latest whql)

Hard Drive Space Usage Under Win7

I just upgraded to win7 (64 bit). My c drive (intel ssd) has ~75 gb space. When i click on "computer, " it says that the total free space is 25gb (i.e 75gb is used up). But the space occupied by all files/folders adds up to only ~24 gb (~21 gb of this is occupied by "windows" and "windows. Old" folders, ~2. 4 gb by "program files" and "program files (x86)", and very little by other folders/files).

How can i find out what is taking up the rest of the space? I have emptied the recycle bin and have done disk cleanup. In addition, in the advanced settings list, i made sure that "show hidden files, folders and drives" is selected. I also unchecked "hide protected operating system files. ".

High Memory Usage With Smb Sharing

I have a number os shared folder on my computer, shared in the old way through advanced sharing. The usual ram load is 1. 49gb as evidenced by task manager showing 4094mb total, 2387mb cached, 2562mb available 215mb free. This morning i realized that my memory usage was 3. 9gb and the numbers didn't add, firing up resource monitor didn't add up suage either it was all "in use" with less than 300mb of cached and 0mb free, it was showing the usual same processes, the thing i discovered with computer manager was that my brother had an 2. 9gb. Iso file mounted in daemon tools in his computer(shared from mine), only mounted it wasn't using it at all and that struck me as odd.

The moment i told him to unmount the iso(and the moment it disappeared from the open files list) memory usage plummeted to normal. During the period of high memory usage, the computer was very sluggish paging left and right whenever i tried to open windows, open tabs in firefox, switch tabs, etc.

I want to know how to fix this horribly wrong behavior as my machine has a ton of files shared and under no circumstance i'll tolerate that eating all my ram(what if i want to start a game when the usage is through the roof?, What if all the other users on the network mount the same file?), On xp i had no such issue and memory usage didn't even flinch on sharing. I have offline files turned off and the service as well. Pc specs: win7 x64 pro, 4gb ram

Expand Shared Graphics Card Memory Usage

How can i expand my shared graphics card memory usage? I have a 4gb ram ddr3 laptop which i'm very happy with and it runs windows 7 very smoothly. Lately, i've been trying out games however i realized that the 'game-report-thingys' say that the shared graphics card is only allocating 64mb of ram.

On my laptop itself though, there is a physical sticker which says that the graphics can use a total of 1. 7gb of ram. How can i expand my ram from the current 64mb to 1gb? The bios set up doesn't show any ram allocations for shared graphics cards.

Open Documents In Ie

Recently i have noticed that word and excel documents accessed via ie (7 or 8) do not open in their own application. Instead, they open in what appears to be half browser/half application. Once the document is saved, it is then shown in its native application. This is a change to the way documents used to open in ie, and i was wondering why this change was made.

I know it is browser related because i have tested it on several sites with the same results, but documents opened in firefox open in their native applications. I know this is going to cause a problem with some of my customers who are not very computer literate. Is there a setting that can be changed to avoid this?

Getting My Recent Documents

How to get "my recent documents" in windows 7? I need "my recent docs". I purchased win7pro because i assumed it was created with professionals in mind. People who rely on their computer for their lively hood rely on "my recent docs" for a million things. The "recent items" function does not seem able to locate any but the last version. When an earlier version is shown in he jump folder, windows can't find it. I need to know what i did yesterday, last week, and in 2002. Xp does that, (pro and home b. T. W. ). Please tell me there is a setting some place that i just haven't found. Everyone in my field relies heavily on "my recent docs". I can't believe it is gone.
