  1. Will Modern Setup Host ever not hog my CPU?


    Modern Setup Host is going and going. Constantly updating, day after day after day. Never stops!

    Just finished one, now it's at it again. Always hogging either CPU or Disk.


    Can I just murder it somehow?

    Modern setup host

    Hi Hermie,



    Regarding your concern with the deleted Modern Setup Host file, we’d like to ask the following questions so we can isolate it at the same time:



    • What particular action that you’re trying to perform at the time that it was accidentally deleted.?
    • May we know where and how it was deleted on your computer?
    • Were you able to check if the deleted file can be found in the
      Recycle bin?

    As an initial step, we suggest that perform a DISM command. This will help repairing possible system file corruptions. Follow these steps:

    • Type command in the search box.
    • Right-click on the result and select Run as administrator.
    • Type this command: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • Press Enter.
    • Close the Command Prompt windows and check if changes were made related to the Modern Setup Host file.

    We'll wait for your update after trying the steps.

    High CPU usage with Modern Setup Host

    Lately I have been having issues with a process called "Modern Setup Host" using up wifi, modem, cpu etc to the point that I cannot use the computer. What's up? I have a 2 year old HP Spectre. Can I disable? VERY frustrating.

    Modern Setup Host

    Hi Benjamin,

    If you recently installed or updated your Windows 10, the Modern Setup Host might be the process that sets up Metro apps or other features of your device. These should settle down after a few days of time. For us to assist you better, kindly answer the questions
    below:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Which version and OS build number of Windows 10 is currently installed? To check, press the
      Windows key, type winver, and press the
      Enter
      key.

    Regards.
