High utilization of the processor after installing the HP printer

My computer is running Windows XP. When installing recently my computer HP printer failed complete installation on the supplied CD.

Then I noticed a dramatic slowdown in the speed of the computer.
I uninstalled the HP from the disk and was able to install the printer using the HP Web site.
Since my computer is very slow to start. While they inspected the Task Manager, I noticed that Explorer.exe uses sometimes up to 100% of the CPU. How can I fix it?

What is the processor and RAM how much your computer have? Make a right-click on the icon my computer on your desktop and select properties for this information.

Try Ctrl + Alt + Delete, select Task Manager, and then click the performance tab. Under Commit Charge, which is the Total, limit, and the pic?

I'd be interested to see a report of Disk Defragmenter. Open Disk Defragmenter and click analysis. Select view report, and then click Save as and save. Now find VolumeC.txt in your My Documents folder. Open the file, and place the cursor anywhere in the file, select Edition, select all to select all the text and copy and paste into the body of your message. To do this, before you run Disk Defragmenter because it is more informative.

Event Viewer reports

1. normally, when an error occurs on your computer looking in Event Viewer should be your starting point to find a solution. More related system errors are recorded and get an exact copy of the relevant report is important. Unfortunately, is not easy to understand reports and most of the users computer need help with their interpretation. I have to say later interpretation.

2 Event Viewer includes three main newspapers of Windows. Here's the Application, security, and system. For purposes of troubleshooting system is by far the most important.

3. to access the system log, select Start, Control Panel, administrative tools, Event Viewer, in the list on the left of the window select Windows and the system logs.

4. a tip for posting copies of error reports! Run Event Viewer and double-click the error you want to copy. You will see a button resembling two pages. Click on the button and close Event Viewer. This places a copy of the report to your Clipboard. Paste it into the body of your message. Make sure that it is the first dough right out of the event viewer.

5. He cautioned against three types of reports, information, and reports errors. In most situations, it is the error reports that offer the best information but sometimes WARNING reports provide useful clues.

6. all reports have stamps date and hour and when troubleshooting, it is important to focus on the latest reports. Reports of studies from the point when the computer is started, and then check if a similar report appeared in the previous session. If errors do not repeat investigation as to why they happen is wasted effort.

7. in the individual reports the most important information is the event ID and Source such as these help when looking for help on the internet. The description is just as important and copy the exact text to use as search criteria greatly helps achieve better results when using Google. Not paraphrase descriptions when other people asking for help.

  • Leaks memory satellite L655 - 14 d, high utilization of the processor after Win 10 updated

    Hello world

    recently, I updated my Toshiba L655 - 14 d running on win7 Home premium 64-bit to win 10.

    After that update system is memory leaks, high utilization of the processor and get stuck every 5 to 10 seconds, is a rhythmic problem happens while Starter upward.

    If music is played nothing breaks and distortion, while using word or another office associated SW it became marked delay in the characters that appear on the screen, using the internet or live streaming is also not smooth.

    Any suggestions to solve these problems?

    It is advisable to change the RAM and upgrade to the new HARD drive (current RAM is 3GB 1066 MHz and is disc HARD 500 GB, ATI Radeon graphics card), if the change has advised if I want on the RAM even or I can go for a more of the same for the HARD drive also.

    Thanks in advance.

    You may need to check if the problem could be related to some drivers installed (maybe GPU driver would need an update) or 3rd party software.
    Background running processes in the context of the system could block the CPU, and this could slow down the performance of the system...
    So a quick glance in the task manager can be useful.

    Of course, upgrade of RAM can be useful too... If you run Win 64 bit system, upgrade of RAM is recommended.
    The 32-bit OS can handle only 3.2 GB RAM... so in this case the RAM upgrade would be useless.

    With regard to upgrading the HARD drive:
    The SATA controller is able to manage any size of HARD drive, but to be honest, this will not increase the performance of the laptop... But change from HDD to SSD drive would increase the performance of the system... so I recommend you replace the HARD drive with SSD drive.

  • high utilization of the processor in standby mode / x 230

    Hi all

    I have an i5 x 230, win8 installed pro on an ssd crucial msata m4, 16 GB of ram. Recently, I noticed a sharp decline in the life of the battery. I believe that this is due to the high utilization of the processor when idle, I see it in the Manager of tasks and shows the process system hovering over 30% cpu usage. It goes down when I restart, but just on the rise after some time, perhaps on his return from his sleep.

    Does anyone have any idea on this? I tried to get a little knowledge base, but nothing came.

  • In obtaining Windows XP SP3 notice of high utilization of the processor, but do not know the cause

    I keep having problems with high CPU usage, but I don't know what is the cause. I know Norton has sent me a few messages on dumprep.exe high utilization of the processor, but this isn't the only time where she do this and it is causing my computer runs slowly, and a few times the last 2 days that makes my strongest computer. I hope someone can help because I don't know anything about all this

    Hi SandieLaster,

    1. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
    2. When was the last time it was working fine?
    3. When the high CPU usage occurs?

    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State


    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    (a) click Start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

    (b) If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    (c) under the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

    (d) when you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

  • MacBook Pro random high utilization of the processor (iCoreService/DCAManager using + 400% CPU?)


    I'm running an Early 2011 Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 with a 2.2 GHZ Quad Core i7 processor 1 TB Samsung 840 EVO SSD and 16 GB of RAM Crucial. I noticed for about a month, I'm going to do a simple task or two on my Mac, then all of a sudden I noticed spikes CPU temporary, 90 + degrees C and the kick of fans trying to cool high speed. Well, I don't know why this is happening when I do nothing to justify a high utilization of the processor. I'm used to the CPU running hot when I do something intensive graphic as running Autodesk Inventor CAD software, run a machine virtual or even watch a 1080 p @ 60 fps video on youtube (it is the lowest resolution that requires the Mac switch to the dedicated AMD Radeon 6750 M GPU that usually eventually warm it quickly) , but this use high random that happens when I have Mail open in the background, and one tab open with a 720 p @ 30 fps video Youtube open (or even less). I took a few screenshots of the activity Manager indicating the best processes and Intel Power Gadget indicating the temperature of the CPU:

    Does anyone know what are iCoreService and/or DCAManager and why they use so much of my CPU when this happens? And someone has encountered this weird behavior before? Thanks in advance!

    The most likely cause is an applicztion you have running that is corrupt and forcing them to use the CPU too. Were you able to kill the process in activity monitor? If you have not yet tried to do, so I'll try that first. I would also try to quit all open applications.

    If you start the computer in Safe Mode , you can test if the problem is still there. If it isn't, usually means something that is managed by you start-up or an application that you use may be the cause.

    While we are aware of the problem, there is little we can do about it.  The modern realities of security of the web browsers have made sandbox, a necessity.

    There is a good explanation of what is happening here: http://blogs.adobe.com/asset/2012/06/inside-flash-player-protected-mode-for-firefox.html

    Long story short, every video packet must be transmitted from the browser to a medium integrity process broker, then the integrity process low drive flash for rendering.  If an attacker is able to hijack the thread of Flash Player, the process is low integrity, which prevents the attacker to do a lot with it.  While it is not an absolute guarantee (nothing security is), it raises the bar significantly for the attackers.

    The downside is that all this additional message passing consumes cycles CPU, especially if you are trying to fill a buffer of exceptional size as soon as possible.  There's not a lot of opportunity to optimize this.

    If you're fine with the risk, you can manually disable ProtectedMode on your machine.  If you deal only with trusted sites, and you do not have anything critical with the machine (work, banking, etc.), then it is probably not a huge deal.

    Finally, ProtectedMode is like a vaccine - it's one thing to immunity.  If the majority of people run it, exploits targeting machines without that it does not conform and probably not merit to be pursued when you look at the effort involved in the development of a feat of end-to-end.  If a large number of people turn it off, it becomes economically attractive for builders of networks of zombie computers, and you will have problems if you do not use.

    To disable the Protected Mode, add the following line to your mms.cfg file located in:

    32-bit Windows: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash

    64-bit Windows: C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash


    If the mms.cfg file does not exist, create one to any text editor standard (p. ex. Notepad)

    Depending on your operating system, you must first save the mms.cfg file in a directory writable (for example, your document or desktop folder), and then copy the file into the folder using Windows Explorer.

    To re - enable Protected Mode, simply delete the line in the mms.cfg file.

    Hello Joop

    Glad to hear that you found a way to scan. If you're up for it, the instructions below would be the next steps. It should not effect your ability to access the Web server integrated (EWS) and should 'own' or 'scrub' all your computer hp printer drivers. This should allow a reinstallation of the software of the printer. The result should be a centre of solutions of job once again, and this can also dispel the Scan Doctor C++ runtime error and printing (Print and Scan doctor may be trying to call data from a corrupted file).

  • Disk error no. Windows after installing HP 8500 printer

    I just installed a HP 8500 printer and using the USB connection and I now get an error Windows no. disk C0000013 75B6BF7C message when I start upward and also at other times.

    HP was no help at all the.

    Windows says it's problem of HP.

    I deleted the printer via the control panel and then plugged it in. When the new hardware found is displayed I see several balloons with Printer Pro 8500 in them BUT it is one that comes up saying the mass storage device and then it goes back to balloons Pro 8500 printer. I noticed that I now have a disk drive removable extra that I didn't have before. I went to the properties of the drive and looked at the Hardware tab and there is a line in this tab, saying that the 8500 printer is a disk drive.

    I am running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3 installed. I also did a windows update and there was an update for the 8500 printer that I have (an exact match) and installed this patch, which had three built-in patches in it. All this without result.

    I installed the latest version of the HP software for the 8500 printer (revision 14) also without result.

    If I boot with the USB cable to the printer plugged in I can start without any error.

    Why the software for HP thinks the 8500 printer is a hard drive? I have not found the slot of the disk drive or tray in the printer still! Ha ha

    Can someone give me some insight on this issue

    I found an answer to this problem - sort of.

    If you insert a memory card into one of the slots on the right side of the printer, the error message does not occur.

    There is a work around and not a real solution.

    I think it is a HP software or Firmware problem. The problem is that they apparently have no answer to this problem in their database.

    It could also be a problem in Microsoft Software. Microsoft and HP have been pointing to the other and does not have to the real cause of the error message.
