    Background programs


    Programs disapear in task manager.


    When I return to my laptop after 10 mins or so the cpu is almost always 100% even though the laptop is idle. When I open task manager to have a look it briefly shows a couple of tasks running with high cpu but then they very quickly disapear and I am not able to tell what they are. Does anyone know what could be causing this? and how to prevent this.

    :)

    Program running a background process?

    I'm running Corel Video Studio 2018, and it's updates function shows characteristics of a background process:

    - the program has an auto check daily plus a manual option for updates

    - manually checked, presented with an option of downloading an update and Ok'd, evidence of any activity vanishes from the program workspace, yet the connected internet modem activity light begins running hot as the download happens

    - it's repeatable over several up-date cycles

    The evidence seems to suggest a background activity - whilst the program/PC is free to use for other things. Several software packages do this.

    However, a check in task manager/processes, show all, does not display any info of a related background process for any Corel or Video Studio program. If a background process is being used by the software, MUST it be listed in the task manager/processes
    list?

    Platform is windows 7 home sp1 64bit plus the important patches.
