Windows 7: typical low cpu usage medium memory AND MORE!

1. yes i have 4 gb but where did the 2gb go? is it normal for ur memory to be up to 30% when ur system is idle?

2. My issue is the cpu because whether my cpu is at 8% or 80%, it barely goes up

3. yes i do have more than avg process running. I don't know if tha'ts normal or not but considering what's been going on with my system, I'd say one or some of these processes might be the reason.

4. My complaints are single. my system isn't running like it used to. It's not normal for my system to have a black screen for a minute before finally showing my desktop. Furthermore, it's not normal that a recently formatted system is a bit slow between going into desktop and beginning your work (openning files etc). My video experience isn't bad because it's bad. It'ss bad because of the slowness which is due to god knows what.

5. no it wasn't like this 6 months ago. everything was fine until one day i decided ot uninstall a bunch of apps because i didnt know what they were or i didnt need them anymore. soon after the problems started.

6. So far it seems that ms sec and malware are doing this. I'm uninstalling them then observing my pc's behavior for a while. I don't think that the reason why i could do so many things at the same time was because I didn't have ms sec.

7. utorrent was NEVER an issue. I'm even surprised it sometimes takes several processes threads. As for jdownloader, the only type of issue it caused was memory. My cpu never overheated because i had these two running before. Ever. And even if i were infected, it didnt do this kind of damage Anyways I've had ms sec and malware for days. I keep scanning and quarantining but there's not that much effect.

8. the image shows bluetooth software at the end of that list and 3 others under it but these 3 aren't checked.

9. found the sticker. but no version. it's been wiped off. found numbers and characters. words. but no windows version. I don't think im imagining this but im sure I told him i wanted 64. Also, regardless of the version, things were great before. I've had 64 bit for a long loooong time.

If you have to keep quarantining things then something is continuing to infect your system.

Utorrent will keep you infected whether or not you believe it or not.
Download Manager is iffy at best. It normally will also download a lot of things you don't know about.

Iastor??

All those things you got started at boot are not necessary.

I'm done preaching. Your system do as you please.

okay look at this.
everything was fine. and i started a skype call. 23 min later he tells me he can't hear me. 30 seconds later the screen lags a lot.
image is while call was on

i will address your reply later. But really look at this .... not fair :P even after i closed skype and torrent, it was still slow for a while. i was almost going to end my epxlorer and start a new one when it FINALLy slowed down.

What version of Skype are you using? 6.?
Also can you check the PID on the process running under svchost? You will need to add the PID column to the Processes tab, then check the PID for svchost and switch to the services tab and try to find the processes with the same PID. There will be several of them, that's OK. Post back with the results.

A lean system might have 50 processes and use 1.4 GB of RAM shortly after a boot. I have 52 processes and am using 1.36 GB of RAM right now. With all the stuff you have running, I'm not surprised you are using as much RAM as you are.

Have you run SFC /scannow from a command prompt? I'm wondering what kind of damage you may have done when you uninstalled "a bunch of apps because I didnt know what they were".

What is ms sec? Microsoft Security Essentials????

Yes Skype 6
Wesvc is the only service with pid matching svhost. Windows reporting service
Lay back bear I will get back to you promise.
I'll run the command and see what I get.
As for startup and memory, if I remove these from startup I'll still need to run them after startup. So at least you're saying that 2 gb is normal.
It just froze again. Lagged cup at 100 etc. Ms sec had 15 even tho it wasn't running a scan. A bunch of chrome had 7 each. I think there were 2. Still don't no why one page creates several processes. And a few other processes that made it go high up. If only I knew why it was doing this.
Yes ms sec is microsoft security



EDIT: passed sfc. no integrity violation found
shall go ahead and scan my disk and my memory? but ill have to do those when i sleep

EDIT EDIT: passed disk check too. that's the tool via computer properties. i restarted my pc and read 3 lines. 2 of which were THE FILE SYSTEM IS NTFS and THIS VOLUME IS CLEAN. This was all in a couple of seconds. it's like there was a check that told it whether it should bother scanning or not

sorry for double post. but svchost.exe now has a diff PID 5876 and therefore different services depending on it. right now it's pnprsvc, p2psvc and p2pimsvc. those are peer name resolution protocol, peer networking grouping, and peer networking identity manager. but i can go like this all day o.o whenever the PID changes, i make a post about the new services under svchost.exe. so i think perhaps, my next post will be the same but only when the laptop decides to go crazy again

Also please check previous post. Edited it twice.

leave your task manager running and sorted by CPU usage, highest at the top. What you need is to catch what brings the CPU to 100 because that's not normal. BTW Skype 6.9 is known to use 20-25 CPU!
Also keep an eye on the task manager. You want to see the PID when svchost is using more than 1% or so of CPU.
Incidentally what driver are you using for your audio? The CPU usage of audiodg.exe is quite high. Maybe it was just a fluke on the screen shot you posted, but if that app is frequently using more than 1-2% CPU you might want to review the driver and any sound effects.

my skype is 6.18.0.xxxx

i started utorrent. it's CPU usage reached 15 for a few seconds. It's been a minute and it's averaging anywhere between 4 and 9 percent. What if it's the new version that's causing all this? at least causing it to take on that much cpu. utorrent build 3.4.2 32bit.

as for the svchost, i made a mistake. there were more than one svchost. at least the first time maybe there were one but the second time there were many. so ill have to take screenshots of all svc quickly and then later when the cpu calms down i can get the services running.

as for the audio, it's either in my profile or i wrote it in one of my long long posts. i have two i believe. one i got as an update from microsoft while the other was from nvidia. i can just uninstall the one from ms how about it? i dont know if i can uninstall the audio from nvidia. if i can id uninstall both and just download a driver from hp.

there are 2 processes called nvvsvc.exe and 3 called nvstreamsvc.exe. these are nvidia driver helper service and nvidia streamer service. is that normal?

i have 14 svchost running. all are 00. so like i said, ill have to take ss when cpu acts up. it's the only choice i have to get them all together.

I read about your slow Malwarebytes scan and its detections. Here's a super fast tip to scan with 50+ antivirus products

Process Explorer from Sysinternals(Microsoft). It's like Task Manager but MUCH better and has an option to check each file on VirusTotal, a multi-engine scanner with 50+ AV's. If you launch it as Administrator it will check all processes incl. those running as system and with high integrity. If the VirusTotal column shows for example 0/55 it means no AV detected anything out of 55 different AV's. If any process shows something else than 0 you can click on the rating to view the report on VirusTotal. See the report to find out if perhaps it's a false positive or a malware. Process Explorer

Go to the Options menu - VirusTotal.com and select Check VirusTotal.com. If you have any processes that hasn't previously been scanned on VirusTotal you could also select Submit Unknown Executables, in the same menu.
A review with screenshots here: http://www.ghacks.net/2014/01/30/pro...total-support/

If you find a suspicious process you can enable the lower pane by pressing Ctrl+L, then all DLL's used in that process will be checked on VirusTotal as well (assuming Process Explorer was launched as Administrator).
