Csrss.exe pic 100% CPU for Win 2003 Server


Recently, I've migrated a physical server to virtual (Server 2003 R2 Std). After that, I see high utilization of the processor in the csrss.exe process.

I tried to check in via Process Explorer. Csrss.exe displays as much CPU being picked up in Process Explorer as it does in the Task Manager window.

I tried the below, without a bit of luck.

(1) complete analysis of Ran. No Virus found.
(2) removed corrupt profiles (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555021/en-us)

Sometimes, when I have connection I noticed my profile size is 4 GB.

You guys can suggest me any solution to workaround to fix high CPU usage.

The migrated VM is single processor

Kind regards

  • Satellite M100-180: where can I find drivers for Win 2003 Server?

    We bought a Microsoft Windows 2003 server. I have install then on our laptop Toshiba Satellite M100-180 PSMA1E-02Q00WRU.

    With the laptop, I found Windows XP CD and Express media player recovery CD Reanimator. No disc drivers there. May be dealer lost drivers disk? If that - where can I get new CD of drivers (I am from Russia, Smolensk)

    I try to download the drivers from the web (toshiba.com.ru), but they are very large (I have a dial-up internet). Then I download driver modem (4M). Installation of the works, but no modem appear after that. And no serial port too.

    I plug the USB-serial converter and install Standart Modem (USR external). Then I have to connect to the internet and try to download the drivers with windows update. No results...


    PS Sorry for my English :)


    : D the dealer nothing lost! The pilot tools & utilities can be created in the Windows XP operating system that came with the laptop.
    With the help of Toshiba, you will find a Protect & Fix tab and the option to create a driver disk ;)

    Further, all the XP drivers are placed on the page of the Toshiba driver. But unfortunately, nothing for Win 2003 server.
    Maybe test it works for XP drivers also on Server 2003

    To find the driver download page please go to

  • Svchost.exe (netsvcs) 100% cpu - update of Windows *.256 cause - update forever checks as does Defender.

    Hi, I got 100% usage cpu choking my system Toshiba laptop L300 Vista 32-bit, cause - (netsvcs) svhost.exe in time real trouble was unknown and tried everything has failed. So I did a complete new installation and fully updated to SP2 then the next update and it required me to download the latest update to terminant.256. My system is now unusable with constantly check and update svchost.exe using 100% cpu. All is well until I start to WU and I restore prior to this Windows Update Agent... Also if I close just the update it is still short in the background using 100% cpu by svchost.exe (ntsvcs) until I have manually stop the service.

    I have:

    Disabled Windows Firewall and Avast antivirus.

    I tried all the things as well in safe mode.

    Installed costs.

    Followed the instructions found on the net

    In offline mode, downloaded and installed the latest update which is the same as that.

    Whenever I have restore before this update, it works very well. The download of the update even if I have restore and install only the off-line version, it cripples even with 100% cpu and without end of audit. He made also Defender without end of audit.

    How to fix something that is a solid wall. You cannot uninstall or go around it. If I restore before it, that's all I can ever be updated Vista.

    I admit, I'm going nuts with this thing. I can't be the only one, it is 100% Windows update agent question.

    Hi Experts,

    It's my 8th attempt to install EBS R12 and got the same error.
    OS - Win 2003 Server R2 Standard.
    used CYGWIN, MS Visual C++ 2010 and Strawberry Perl.
    Used Oracle E-Business Suite R12 installation Windows XP steps followed all the steps... Finally even error...


    in the link above, I've added all the screenshots of th and the log files.
    1. can I use MS Visual C++ 2010?
    2. can I use strawberries Perl?

    Can someone help me please... Please let me know if you need any additional info or any other file of log...

    Thank you

    I tried again, installation with perl 5.x and Visual c ++ 2008. And got the same error... think you can change the operating system from Win 2003 to Win 2008?

    It may be useful, but I can't confirm that, until you try the operating system.

    For the moment, I see two options-
    try to use oracle enterprise linux,
    Deployment Oracle VM model...

    I would recommend OEL.

  • doc2text process using 100% cpu for a long

    I have encountered this problem before and never received a satisfactory solution.

    When we publish some PDF documents via collab in KD, doc2text process on our servers portals (also our API) turn at 100% of the CPU for about 90 seconds. This causes the publication of collab to fail, so we resort to directly download the file to the KD via downloading content.

    (1) why doc2text works on our servers of portal in the first place? Is this a result of the service portal server or api? If I move the API service off the coast to another machine, which will remove that pig of our front end servers CPU?

    (2) has anyone seen this before, or found a way around it? Y at - it a newer version of doc2text in gR 10, 3 that is not so terrible?

    I'm about to move to 1 - cpu virtual in our new environment, so any process that takes up 100% of the CPU will kill performance.


    Collab makes an IDK call to publish the document, so it does not hit the API service. For this reason, I propose the wide API service to another server so that the portal is not affected.

    All attempts are like Adimiistator and it still does not work.

    Hello Bobe2,

    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Forum.

    It would be better to post in another forum. This forum is intended for consumers about Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
    Given that your question concerns the connection to a Windows 2003 server, it would be preferable for you to post in the forum Windows 2003.

  • A process called "svctimesag.exe" consumes high CPU on the Production Server.

    OT: svctimesag.

    Hi team,

    In one of our Production Server is a process called "svctimesag.exe" using high CPU. This problem has been detected the day before.

    For immediate solution, we killed the process, but it did not help, then you need to restart our server.

    In the past 24 hours this process has shoot to the top of the CPU twice and you need to restart the server with force.

    Also searched the Internet but found no information. The location of the file on the server is C:\Program Files (x86)\Products\svctimesag\svctimesag.exe

    We organize engine on the server management application. We also opened the case with them to know the process.

    If any user face any problem with that part of process please your valuable troubleshooting strike.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Remote Desktop hangs - Pro Win/7 Win/2003 Server access

    I'm access to about 20 different servers - mostly Win/2003.  On two of them. After working for a while; the screen turns off (gray); the task bar (sort of) will appear at the top of the screen. None of the keys work correctly; I can sometimes part of the screen of Windows Explorer, but it has a white background;  I can only 'X' to.  If I reconnect, I see the same garbage.  I have a system administrator to disconnect the session.  Other servers have absolutely no problem.  We can check?

    We intend to migrate CF7 from a Windows 2000 Server to a new server, Win 2003 and I was asked to verify it will run in this environment. I guess, but that is indeed the case?

    In addition, with respect to licensing, can we use the same license on both servers temporarily while performing the migration and testing?

    Thank you very much
