  • Unknown to the programs that run in the background, slowing down the computer

    System resources are always be taxed.  How to get to the screen that lists all the programs that start automatically at system boot?  How to identify unnecessary programs in startup list?  Once identified, how to eliminate these programs?

    Hello DcR3, levels,

    How to get to the screen that lists all the programs that start automatically at system boot? How to identify unnecessary programs in startup list? Once identified, how to eliminate these programs?

     I would say do not delete program files if you are unsure what it is.  You can do a search online of a file if you don't know exactly what it is.

    To view startup programs:

    Right-click on the icon in the start menu. Select "Explorer" from the menu that appears
    Find the 'Programs' folder in the pane on the left side of the dialog window. Click the plus sign "+" to expand the tree of folders
    Click the "Startup" folder to view the programs that start up when your computer is turned on

    Go to the start menu. In the menu list, click on 'run '.

    Type "msconfig" without the quotes in the text bar. Click on 'OK '.

    Click on the "Startup" tab in the dialog window of the System Configuration that is displayed.

    Scroll down to see all of the programs and program files that start up when your computer is turned on.

  • Windows Installer slows down my computer

  • Video games slow down the computer even when closed?

    Recently, I replaced the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE with a 8400 GS PCI Express so that I can play Call of Duty 4, Fallout 3, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, etc. After installation of the new equipment, several problems came. I have a 32-bit of Windows Vista Home Premium.

    1. the "Windows experience index" could not evaluate the 8400 GS.
    2. Windows could not find the driver for the 8400 GS software automatically, then I found myself from www.nvidia.com.
    3. Although games played much more quickly after any where between 5 and 30 minutes of games, the computer goes REALLY slow. Yet once I close the games via the Task Manager, the computer continues to accuse. Icons highlight more slowly, for example. It remains for 5 to 10 minutes before returning to its original state.

    It could have been a problem plant material so I reinstalled the driver/3 times already.
    I have cleaned the registry of the computer, defragmented it and the two drives C and D.
    Problem persists.

    Help, please? Otherwise I'm going to get a new video card that is not too good.

    Hi decapen10,

    Looks like you're having overheating problems. Everything works fine until the internal temperature reaches a certain point, then the system slows down to protect the processor failure. When you leave the high demands of the games that you play, the card can cool down a bit and things pick back up. Take a look at your map and see if there's a fan built in. If this is not the case, try to join one. If so, try to take the case out of your pc to see what happens. If it works fine, then you must install some additional cooling in your case to dissipate heat coming builing. The other scenario is that you could have a defective 8400 GS. You could try to Exchange if it is still under warranty.

    Here is a link to a site discussing these issues:

  • CEPHtmlEngine slows down the computer (Mac) and the solution.

    Hello users Adobe and CC,.

    I've seen there are already other posts on the "famous" CEPHtmlEngine, I got a new (2 months) iMac 27 retina (with the highest config.) and I noticed that when I run (for the 1st time), all programs Adobe CC (it may be InDesign or Photoshop or another) they very very slow. It seems that something done the CPU works a lot. After some time spent in the Manager Mac tasks I found this CEPHtmlEngine itself two or three times and each copy 'calls' the CPU at least 20/50 times. I found a temporary solution by manually closing all CEPHtmlEngine. By doing this all programs of work fast and well as usual and there is no error or problems. You must close the CEPHtmlEngine and not the CEPHtmlEngine assistance program: the assistance programme is just the 'son' and if you shut the engine creates another. Last thing: the CEPHtmlEngine will not appear again until you restart the computer.

    It worked on my computer so I just wrote this to give notification of Adobe (a more) of the problem and to give a solution to all Mac users (it might work on Windows too but I can't try it) which can be useful until an update will fix this.

    PS: I received the software CC and all the applications that have been upgraded to the latest version.

    Hi days_of_speed,

    Could you please try it on private design library (shared - files Acrobat.com), construction that has a potential fix for the issue of the use of the CPU?

    1. move the old design library extension to another location (move your desktop for example):

    • Photoshop: / Applications/Adobe Photoshop 2015/Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.app/Contents/Required/CEP/extensions/com.adobe.DesignLibraryPanel.html/ CC
    • Illustrator: / Applications/Adobe Illustrator CC 2015/CEP/extensions/com.adobe.DesignLibraries.angular/
    • InDesign: / Applications/Adobe InDesign CC 2015/Resources/CEP/extensions/com.adobe.DesignLibraries.angular/

    2. download DL.zip of files shared - Acrobat.com, then extract it to

    • Photoshop: / Applications/Adobe Photoshop 2015/Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.app/Contents/Required/CEP/extensions/ CC
    • Illustrator: / Applications / Adobe Illustrator CC 2015/CEP/extensions /.
    • InDesign: / Applications / Adobe InDesign CC 2015/resources/CEP/extensions /.

    The final directory structure should look like:

  • Micorsoft windows search filter host uses 3g of ram and slows down the computer to a crawl.

    search filter host started running after the updates and it slowed my laptop to a crawl.   Why is it turning?  And that fact?

    Running Vista on the HP hdx laptop.  RAM 4g dual-core

    It is probably rebuild the search Index (maybe called something in one of the updates for this action) - Although it could do other things as well (it's hard to tell).  You can do this finish faster in general by reducing the number of file types or sites included in the Index (Start/Control / Panel / Indexing Options / Advanced)- but the file types and locations are not included in basic research (it's a compromise).  Some people say that excluding files .xml help (especially if you have a big disco).

    If this does not solve the problem (or you're stuck with it running and it will not be closed) Download Process Explorer http://download.cnet.com/Process-Explorer/3000-2094_4-10223605.html and see which fits all the CPU usage - it should provide more information than Manager and helps focus in spots on the problem.

    The problem may be with the updates (or one of the updates).  Try a system restore to a point in time BEFORE the problem started (before installing updates without doubt).  Here is the procedure: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/.  Don't forget to check the box to show more than 5 days of restore points.  If the first attempt fails, then try an earlier point or two.  NOTE: You will need to re - install any software and updates that you have installed between now and the restore point, but you can use Windows Update for updates (but be careful, because if the issue is resolved, then one of these probably caused updates and you do not want to recreate the problem).

    For more information on the updates (which seems to be the source of your problem since it was started after them installed), repost in the Windows Update Forum: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/InternetExplorer/threads where the people who specialize in updating issues will be more than happy to help you with this problem.  Try to provide them with the names of the updates and their number KB (as well as all that you have done to try to solve the problem).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Dllhost.exe surrogate COM slow down the computer using the memory


    I could really use some help if anyone has the time. :-)
    My computer behaves strangely since I made a restore point.
    I did the restore point because I could not get online, oddly enough it turned out to be a loose wire.
    Anyway, now there is an application that keeps popping up in my task manager using most of my cpu, so my
    computer bogged down. It is named dllhost.exe COM surrogate and when I opened its location
    He was in my folder windows32. It is not my services that I can see, but it seems to be bound to play
    video or music files. I could be wrong.
    I did the usual antivirus (avast free edition free antivirus and malwarbytes) analysis, I defragmented
    my computer, I did a scan of system, I did a scan of the memory...  I can't understand.
    Any suggestions?
    My computer has 16 GB of installed RAM and 1 TB HDD I am running Windows 7
    Professional 64-bit.
    Thank you in advance.  :-)

    I did go to the task manager of windows, processes, sort them alphabetically by the description column, you can list by going to display and select column, and then down to the substitution of com and do a right-click and choose end process... you may need to do more than once... This will remove at least for awhile... it is mainly used to display thumbnail pictures in my photo folder... you can the delete permanently, but then you would not have miniature photos...
