Windows 7: wmplayer.exe CPU usage above 50

07 Nov 2009   #1

7600.16385 x86
wmplayer.exe CPU usage above 50

I've search all other threads but I can't find how to solve this problem I've been having.

I use Windows 7 build 7600.16385 and WMP 12.0.7600.16415. I've been using a headphone with built-in mic with two 3.5mm jack interface, black and pink jacks. It's all normal since I fresh installed Windows 7 until recently I unplugged my headphone for cleaning. When I plug it back again, wmplayer.exe cpu usage is 30-40 without playing any media, when it's playing mp3 and other audio files it spikes up to 50-60 cpu usage.

I tried to unplugged it and plug it again, restart, safe mode, but still no luck so far. Help please.
