    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.

    Program running a background process?

    There's no updating "process" (using that term for both a process and a service that runs background) for video studio showing using

    - Task Manager/processes

    - msconfig/services

    - msconfig/startup

    So I guess there isn't one.

    The question tho wasn't "is there one running" (I'd already checked that for task manager at least and reported so in the 1st post), but whether by specification if a vendor was to run one, it must appear in the list.

    Ergo, not listed = not being run.

    Next stop on my diagnosis path is to check scheduling.

    Hi Joyboat

    1

    Turn off all unnecessary startup applications and processes:

    Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager

    Click on the Startup Tab

    See any non-essential items are listed there

    If so, select and click 'Disable'

    Close Task Manager

    Click your Start Button, type msconfig and hit Enter

    When the System Configuration dialog opens, click on the Services Tab

    Check the box marked 'Hide Microsoft Services'

    In the remaining list, see any non-essential items are listed there, uncheck any you find

    Click Apply and OK

    2

    Turn off all unnecessary Background Apps

    Open the Settings App

    Go to Privacy - Background Apps

    Turn off any App you do not need running in the background

    Restart your PC

    3.

    If your PC is still running slow:

    Open Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc)

    Choose the Processes Tab

    Leave that window open to monitor your system

    When your PC is running slow, is your Hard drive, CPU or RAM overly busy at that time?

    If so, click on the appropriate column header, so the arrow faces down

    What are the top 5 processes at that time?
