Win 7 Home Premium x86 dell E5510. If I get any probs I'll update them here. I cleaned out the SoftwareDistribution directory once again, enabled Windows Update to manually start and started over with the same results. It looks like this in task manager when I open the real? It is very sluggish to respond while it's hogging the cpu but just hover for a minute and the menu comes up so you can close it. This has been a frustrating, ongoing issue since installing Windows 7 fresh install.
I have bookmarked this page, so maybe i am not that confident that my last 3 hours have been a total success. Press Win key logo + R to open Run program. But this is getting pretty nuts that this hasn't been adressed yet. Thanks and Regards: Shekhar S - Microsoft Support. I managed stop this from happening by creating a workaround.
I managed stop this from happening by creating a workaround. Hello again, Today I decided to try a refresh reformat I guess of my Windows 7 pc and when everything was finished I checked task manager since there was almost nothing installed again, no unsecapp. There is not many things that get on my nerves, but when someone wants help, then they find an answer in another forum, they inconsiderately don't leave a link for others. In most cases, the unsecapp. Or that might be on other computer.
Also, run a custom scan for viruses on the System32 folder. This is a rental until I get my return on school funds. Many viruses or malicious programs can cause the svchost. Here you will see every svchost. If you have further any queries feel free to ask. First, install a malware detection tool such as Malwarebytes. See if it did the trick.
Next choose Disabled from the Startup type combo box located in the middle of the dialog box: I have gone through this process a couple of times and it has worked for me. After one more hour all the updates were downloaded. I prefer human intervention with these updates so as to weed out any er, how can I put it, irregularities with stuff we are told we need or force-fed but actually don't like the free Windows 10 upgrade lol. After I took all the important — necessary updates I needed , I have disabled the windows update service and I will check the updates time to time by myself. There are some links there that help, One of which explains why the svchost gets this problem re-complexity of program and recursively checking the possible updates against previously installed updates which by now is a very long list to check etc…. I have cpu meter, network meter and drives meter, clicked off the drives one and all was fixed, did not even have to trouble shoot: I have learned to google first before trouble shooting, big time saver,lol.
Going to try and set windows updates to automatic tomorrow. Repeat the process which you performed in the last step. System Restore will help you revert your system settings back to a date when the system was working fine. So do not remove it. We believe in your mind. Are you adult, aren't you? Apparently this overwrites all Performance counter registry settings and Explain text, replacing them with the configuration defined in the file specified. So, I think this is a bug in Windows 7 64bit.
If it does not help, try these suggestions. I also am running v7. How would I determine what program or startup process is using it? Thanks also for posting the details on Windows Update troubleshooting — I had tried some of those steps, but not all — and not updated with current information. Download Microsoft's to your computer. I will come back here should i still have the same problem and follow a different step on this page.
If you need a full and complete solution, Method 1, 2 and 3 can be your best shot and you can give any one of them for a try now. I am running Windows 7 64-bit and have found updates are nearly impossible to run as the downloading function runs forever! That means that now we have no information if this process is harmful or not. When I had Windows Update set to Manual start, something was starting the process and the svchost. The following services are the ones under the svchost that is hogging all the cpu when viewing process explorer. Thus you are not supposed to block it on Windows 10. Wmi is a very important service that manages your Windows applications.
What a scam outfit, I totally agree with rezai muenster… saying Microsoft could be attempting to force people to Windows 10. I was investigating this issue for a week and was wondering if I am making an even bigger problem of it. It says access is denied. Anyone know what this process is for, or why the sudden appearance of it? I did noticed that controls on the right hand side of the gadget weren't appearing on mouse-over. Look for these services: Diagnostic Service Host Diagnostic System Host Distributed Link Tracking Client ReadyBoost Windows Driver Foundation - User Mode Driver Framework If they're set on Automatic, change them to Manual, then restart. Again, I'm not at all worried about this program starting or anything since we know it's legit it's just why does avast! You should always verify the accuracy of information provided on this page.
I have yet to determine if it's the root cause. Windows 8 Task Manager One last thing I wanted to mention was the fact that the Windows 8 task manager basically makes using the command line or Process Explorer totally obsolete. Method 4: Boot Into Safe Mode with Networking Step 1: Hold Windows key + R to open run command. Yup, seems like forever but that's how long it took. This is getting very frustrating as I have now spent 2 days in front of this thing researching and trying to sort it out. Navigate and locate Superfetch, right click on it and select Properties; 4. But it never bothered much before upgrading to Windows 10.
