    Rundll32 using disk and cpu resources


    Windows host process Rundll32 in task manager shows 4% cpu usage and 3 mb/s disk acitivity for an extended period. It slows down my pc, upgraded from Windows 7. Why is this and what is it doing? Maybe it's no big deal, or maybe that's normal. Just wondering. Any replies welcome and thanks in advance.

    :)

  3. High disk usage and Ram usage

    At this point I wouldn't worry about memory. It would be useful to know what's chewing the disk though. Either order the Disk columns on order of usage or open the Resource monitor (under Performance) and drill down to see what's chewing your disk at
    startup. (Or CPU usage should also tell us the story.)

    I can't see it at all in my task manager so I would assume it has something to do with what you have running on start up.

    Download Process Explorer it will tell you what it is

    The only SoundBlaster item in my startup is the volume control notification in the taskbar, which is probably good to keep maybe. Maybe I'll try disabling it and see if that helps. Thanks for the tip.
     
  7. Well Creative usually creates something like this, maybe not on your soundcard.

    It doesn't list that way. It's just "VolPanlu.exe /r".
