Windows 7: Fixing audioDg High cpu usage

Fixing audioDg High cpu usage

Disabling Audio Effects

In order to fix the high CPU usage, I disabled the audio enhancements processed by the audiodg.exe file. To disable the audio enhancements, use the following steps:

Right-click the speaker icon in the lower right corner.
Select Playback Devices from the menu. A list of devices should appear on the screen.
Double-click the device that has a green checkmark. The properties windows for that device should open.
Click the Enhancements tab at the top.
From the list of enhancements, uncheck all of them, or click the Disable all enhancements checkbox.
Click the OK button to save your changes and close the window.
Click OK to close the Playback Devices window.
Once I disabled the enhancements, the movie played without any issues. I also didnít notice any difference in sound with the enhancements disabled. If I do want to use sound enhancements, Iíll stick to the the options provided in the application.

Thanks to

Just curious, do you remember what enhancements were enabled?

The efficiency of the audio driver makes a difference as well.
