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

windows 7 ultimate x64

Update Skype to 6.8
No idea about the torrent app, not using them.
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't see that you have listed the drivers anywhere. Sorry if I missed it. Can you check which driver is loaded for the sound card in Device manager?

1. can i selectively choose which version to update to? can't unless i find the setup file myself. last time i made an update, i started getting those advertisements on skype :P u said 6.9 is bad. does that mean than an older version is bad too?

2. here's what i see in device manager:
bluetooth hands free audio
idt high definition audio codec
4 lines of nvidia high def audio
nvidia virtual audio device (wave extensible) (wdm)

will reply to other posts later

i took two ss. one is a few seconds after it acted up. i had to create an image file then edit it. the second is after closing teamviewer and skype. i wasn't doing anything with skype. teamviewer had a meeting but wasnnt doing anything there either.

this is the services running under all svchost.exe processes.
i couldn't find 2900 :O
one svchost had pid of 2900. there was no such service with that pid

i deleted the services that weren't under svchost.exe to avoid confusion. but i find myself having deleted less than 5% of the services tab. So I do hope this helps.

regarding audidag.exe (forgot its name), you said that it should be between 1 and 2. At some point, it was between 3 and 6. not just a fluke. It was like that for quite some time. I don't remember what I was running then. I forgot to take ss sorry.

my skype is 6.18.0.xxxx
what's behind the xxxx?

You have way too many drivers for audio. Which to keep and which to uninstall might be easier to determine if you actually told us what drivers are loaded rather than enumerating the devices....

Was there a screen shot with your previous post?

We obviously don't communicate very well with each other.
The processes running under Svchost are only interesting if svchost is using a lot of CPU. You don't need to collect all the instances of svchost. Just the one that is misbehaving.
The screen shot with the processes shows two instances of Teamviewer of whic one is using 15% CPU.
Same screen shot also shows audiodg.exe at 15%.
Try this:
  1. Right-click on the speaker icon on the bottom right corner of the screen.
  2. Select Playback Devices.
  3. In the list look for the icon with the green check mark.
  4. Highlight the icon.
  5. Click Properties and then click on the Advanced tab.
  6. Uncheck the Enable Audio Enhancements checkbox.
It's almost certain this is on of the hdmi drivers that is causing trouble.

Sorry you're right. I forgot u wanted the bad ones. My current playback is the TV I'm connecting my laptop to via hdmi. Clicking on advanced gives me two check boxes none of which you mentioned. My two options are allow app to take exclusive control and give exclusive mode app priority
Same for my laptop speakers which aren't selected of course. I do have an enhancements tab but none of the options are selected.
How do I tell u what drivers are loaded? I gave u the list from device manager as asked.

okay so torrrent is causing this. one of the causes. i just don't know why. it's never been like this before. it makes no sense. if torrent always causes a problem, no one would leave their torrent on ever.
is it torrent or is it my version of utorrent or is it utorrent?

anyways, i started utorrent and 5 minutes later it acted up. I checked svchost and there was one that was acting up going between 1 and 12.
I took a screenshot of the service it was for.

Furthermore, no one told me how to tell u what drivers are loading Do I open each line in device manager for sound and see what info they have?

How did you arrive at this conclusion?

Do I open each line in device manager for sound and see what info they have?
pretty much, yes: right click, properties, click on the driver tab, take a screenshot

Layback Bear post 11:
yes it means the real problem isn't being taken care of by malwarebytes.
if that's true about torrents then why did it start now? it's been on my device for years and years and i can't say iv had one issue as a direct cause of having torrent. that's why i asked a few posts ago if it's my version of utorrent or utorrent itself (maybe another torrent app is better?)

Download Manager. I've been using Internet Download Manager for a few years and again, I can't say that any issue that occured is a direct result of using it.

Iastor: I googled it. A legit process but sometimes it's a virus disguised as it. I will deal with it later.

The startup section under msconfig is now unchecked. I did this a few days ago. No diff really. The issue is somewhere else

Tookeri post 20:
You'll need to sit with me and show me how this works and what i can really do with it. Sorry I didn't understand much. I did have a quick look at it though

Cyanna post 28:
I have new pics for you from yesterday. first time skype and teamviewer were on. audio skype meeting teamviewer. second time teamviewer was meeting but skype wasnt doing anything. at the time i decided to open a file using netbeans. my laptop lagged so bad it was ridiculous. third time teamviewer meeting skype closed. decided to skype via mobile. my audiolg was at 3%
i had to restart inorder to use skype again. ending explorer didnt work.

skype do u really think that upgrading to a new version will be better?

torrent: it's one of the problems. torrent and skype. okay not the causes but the result of something else.

Well I thought you didn't read my post # 11.

It's not the torrent program itself. It's what you download using the torrent program.
You have no idea what is coming from where.

The bad guys like most everybody else know why you use torrent.
So what the bad guy's do is infect the feeds that you are downloading from.
Because you have given permission to do these downloads the security programs don't stop the bad things. You have basically told your security programs not to stop them.

These infections will come in pieces at times and be assembled by your torrent program and (bingo) you are infected again. Also because the infection can be in pieces it's very hard for any security program to recognize them on the way in your computer.
But once they are assembled you security scans finds them.

You are doing the same thing in the same way so you are ending up with the same results.
No security system can protector the owner/operator of a computer from themselves.
