Windows 7: Does running Verifier put any kind of load on the system?

Does running Verifier put any kind of load on the system?

Hi all,

I configured Verifier.exe to run to see if it might shed some light on freezes and bsods. Anyway, I'm notice my audio playback is now choking every few seconds. I notice a little bump in the cpu load but nothing major.

Well wanted to ask since I made that configuration change and all of sudden the audio issue. I read somewhere that it's good to let it run at least 24 hours. So trying to avoid stopping and starting before that time is up.

Thanks.

I believe it does cause a lag on the PC . It is stressing the drivers to see which driver causes the BSOD . So what you're experiencing is normal when you have DV enabled .

If you have a look into Resource Monitor > CPU tab, you should be able to tell.

Thanks VistaKing. Now if only the system would crash already.

You're welcome

If you had a few BSODs then I would recommend taking a look at the link below

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Note   Note
Click on the GRAB ALL button and wait until every file is generated to a folder . It will take a while to complete .


If you have been running DV for 24 hrs and didnt get any BSODs I think its safe to disable the DV .

Right, I was looking at a cpu gadget on my screen. Same reading in both though, 25%, which is probably a bit much for idling but doesn't seem like much to cause lagging.

Thanks VK. I did that last year, before the neat(er) interface. But the system has been problematic on and off for some time. One of the recommendation last time was to remove Comodo. I went back and forth on whether to uninstall it. Thing is whenever I'd look at dumps through windbg there were never any cmdagent or other comodo related files. Anyway, apologies for the tangent. It's possible that if DV doesn't help I may utilize the new diagnostic and post again.

Try running a memory test .

Will need a USB flash drive . Take a close look at Part 3 if you get any errors during the test

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

That's a good idea. Haven't done one in a while so makes sense. Thank you.
