  1. Internet Explorer background process normal in Windows 10?


    Hi, slight fork of a thread in the anti virus forums below. After loading up Windows 10 (x64 Home), after about 8 minutes I am seeing a background internet explorer process iexplore.exe launch, which then launches up to 200 connections to various ips, some look like possible ad servers akamai, amazon etc. This lasts for about 3 minutes, and will maybe occur every hour or so. I thought I'd disabled all ad options I have seen in Windows 10 options including Cortana, however it seems searchui.exe may be connected to this process. I'd really appreciate if anyone could check for any background internet explorer processes running in Windows 10, either by using something equivalent of Kaspersky network monitor in your anti virus, or a third party app, thanks!

  2. Is it normal to have 97 background processes?

    My laptop has 8gbs of RAM but the amount of background processes are sucking nearly 50% of it, so when I start using apps like browsers, or voice chat apps, it gets up between 70 and 80%, making my laptop fans loud, and hot. Most of this processes seem
    to be from windows, and I don't know which ones should I close, or how to eliminate them. I don't know anything. Please help.

  3. Is it normal to have 97 background processes?

    We are volunteers willing to help you try to resolve this issue.

    The computer I am on also uses approx. 50% of the 8 GB at startup. Remember that Windows 10 uses different memory management than previous Windows versions and will free up memory as required. Free memory is unused memory which is doing your system no good
    whatsoever.

    I would do a Performance check for the entire system.

    If using an SSD or hybrid hard drive be sure it has the latest firmware.

    Try the Clean Boot method to see if a startup program is involved - if so it is a process of elimination :

    Right Click the start button - Command Prompt (Admin) OR Windows PowerShell (Admin) - at the prompt type in

    MSCONFIG

    and hit enter

    Process Monitor - Free - an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon, and adds an extensive list of enhancements
    including rich and non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties such session IDs and user names, reliable process information, full thread stacks with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging to a file, and much more.
    Its uniquely powerful features will make Process Monitor a core utility in your system troubleshooting and malware hunting toolkit.

    =====

    Do all of these :

    If you had a 3rd party antivirus on the OS you upgraded OR if you have one now uninstall it and then run its maker's removal tool. Use Windows Defender which in Windows 8/8.1/10 is a full antivirus. Despite all the hype out there

    Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall are true superstars.

    Tips to improve PC performance in Windows 10 <-- read this link

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/400201...

    The below is additional help with some of the methods in the "Tips to improve...." link.

    Windows Key + X - Command Prompt (Admin) OR Windows PowerShell (Admin)

    (Run these one line at a time.)

    SFC /scannow

    Note if that shows uncorrected errors - do the below regardless.

    When that completes run these :

    DISM /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth

    DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Note if that shows any uncorrected errors - do the below regardless.

    Then restart the computer.

    ------

    Be sure you are running the latest available BIOS, chipset drivers, and all the major device drivers.

    Check with System Maker (Motherboard Maker for custom systems) for updates to the BIOS, low level chipset drivers, and the major on-board and separate device drivers. Run DriverView - set VIEW to Hide Microsoft drivers - update those without Dump in their name.

    DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system. For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver, description, version, product name, company that created
    the driver, and more.

    DriverView: Loaded Windows Drivers List

    For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the most current. Right Click Start Button - Right Click Start Button - Display Adapter - write down the make and complete model of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab - write
    down the version info. Now click UPdate Driver (this may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click - Uninstall - REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard if 3rd party with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers you have.

    Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and then Device Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their latest versions. (Look for BIOS, Chipset, and software updates at System Maker's site while there.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are installing actually shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the latest is installed (sound drivers particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot - check to be sure
    it is installed and repeat as needed.

    Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - check manually by model.

    Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.
