    DWM.exe & Client Server Runtime Process taking up a lot of GPU Power


    Hi all...I desperately need help and I'm sorry if this isn't the right place for it.

    So today I noticed that dwm.exe and csrss.exe are taking up an absurd amount of my GPU. They will take between 5-20% just to move the mouse across the screen. I've been pulling my hair out over this issue all day. I've updated my drivers checked for a crypto miner, and various other fixes that have been found online...to no avail. I was thinking of doing a clean install of windows...but don't necessarily want to go down that road if it can be helped. Case in point the right now my gpu...basically at idle is running at 3% 1.5 to Chrome and the rest to the two windows apps.

    I guess my questions is...


    1. is this abnormal and are my concerns justified...I don't remember this ever being an issue.


    2. Does anyone know any potential fixes


    3. Is a windows clean install my only bet

    Like I said I've already updated Nvidia drivers clean install. I am pretty sure the card itself is doing fine. It is running at 30-32C on idle and I was playing a game that had it maxed for several hours and it didn't go over 62C. I've tried unplugging both my monitors and the problem still was there. I'll include my specs below. Oh and everything is at stock...no overclocking.



    Ryzen 2600x

    16 Gig 3000 mhz ram

    MSI Gaming Plus B450 Motherboard

    MSI GTX 1660 6gb GPU

    I use two monitors. Both 1080p one is 60hz the other 144hz.

    :)

    Client Server Runtime Process sucking 40-50% GPU while watching media. It just bumps up causing frame drops in the video. I tried setting the priority of csrss.exe to low but that didn't help. Also changing the priority of dwm.exe didn't. Please help me
    fix this, this is a nuisance. Thanks!

    Client Server Runtime Process using 40-70% of GPU

    I was trying to fix one problem I was having, and while trying to fix that, I ran into another. The other one can wait, because I cannot fix the other one with fixing this one first.

    So a service called Client Server Runtime Process is taking up anywhere between 40-70% of my GPU while watching youtube videos or streams on Chrome. Goes down to 1-5% when not watching anything. Did as much digging as I could and this is what I have done
    so far.

    -Ran Malwarebytes, RogueKiller, Windows Defender, tdsskiller, AVG, superantispyware professional, bitdefender for checks of coin mining stuff, nothing came up
    -Process goes back to C:\Windows\System32 , ending process requires checkbox losing data and shutting down comp
    -Checked process details in process explorer, everything points to it still being the real deal
    -Windows up to newest date, GPU drivers newest drivers, BIOS latest, everything is up to date.
    -Registry cleaned, junk and trackers dumped
    -Rolled back GPU drivers, and windows, problem still persists

    Then I stopped all my extensions on Chrome, nothing changed, I do not have accelerated on either. Tried Edge, Edge just used straight GPU from the browser. So I downloaded Firefox, had no issues with GPU being used under 5%. I proceeded to uninstall Chrome,
    [forgetting to save my bookmarks], re-install Chrome. Find that it's using GPU now from the browser, turn off acceleration, now it goes back to Client Server Runtime Process, and goes back to using 40-70% of GPU while watching youtube or streams. Everything
    on the radeon settings is disabled, most useless things and none of them are running, nor have they ever been.

    A Lot of the solutions were related to GeForce shadow play being uninstalled or something Nvidia related, which I cannot do and do not have as I run AMD. I can't think of anything else to do or have find any solution, I have seen some people have this
    exact issue but they never are responded to leaving it unanswered. The only thing that I can say maybe related is, before this was happening, which was fine earlier in the day, was while trying to fix my previous problem, which required me to try and install
    an run a game on a separate harddrive. [ Trying to figure out if my main harddrive was dying or not]. I can't even play the game when this system process is using 40-70% of my GPU. I then uninstalled from my other drive, restarted, problem still persists.
    All games are from Steam, yes my Windows is legit. I spend my my time on the most used and popular sites, never click ads, I haven't downloaded anything random besides all these tools to trouble shoot. Any help?

    Win10 home

    AMD 9590

    32g DDR3

    Crosshair V formula-Z mobo

    AMD R9 390

    Additional info, if I am watching a youtube video or a stream, and click lets say, on reddit tab while the video/stream is still playing and I can hear it, the gpu usage from Client Server Runtime Process goes back down to 0%. As long as I cannot see it,
    it's fine, but if I can, it starts using GPU again. Regardless of how many youtube videos I can make appear on my screen, the usage doesn't go past 70%. Not really looking for reformat answers, as answers to this could help others. Plus, I could just use Firefox
    and problem fixed, but rather try and figure this out as the issue could be bigger. Hopefully this doesn't get lost or un-responded to like some other forums, i'm trying as many as I can to figure this out.
