the highest lve seen was a 10C jump by the time l moved the mouse, they returned to normal.. cant reproduce it if l leave any process monitors going

think l have caught the possible culprit.. "audiodg.exe" noticed it just randomly using 50% lve disabled the special effects, but l was wondering if there was any other tweaks.. tho in all honesty l can only assume its the problem at this second as l happen to be listening to some MP3s that and l dont remember it happening before.

Audiodg is a known problem. Since vista, there have been reports of the same problem. I have seen audiodb using upwards of 2 gigs of ram and 65% cpu. there is a fix but I forget where. I suggest you google audiodg and high cpu use

good luck

It is inconsistent at best. If you need the enhancements then you are going to have to deal with it, or find a work around. You could set it to manual and delayed start to see if it helps any.

Good luck

l dont need the enhancements tbh, all l do is watch a few vids and listen to MP3s its just annoying that every few mins l look at the performance monitor the process is using a good 50% tho it seems to be around the times a song changes (at the second)

change that, it seems more random. l guess l spoke too soon.

If you dont need it kill it. I dont think it is dependent on or being used by anything else.

from what l see disabling the service will disable sound.

on another note, l have messed around with the quality settings, changed it from 24bit to 16bit DVD quality, which has helped, at least in the perspective that when it spikes its just a spike that lasts a few seconds rather than constant for short periods of time until the mouse has moved... tho l do notice more contstant usage of the service now but at lower levels between 1 and 2 spiking to the 40s, its really weirding me out.
