  1. Windows Image Acquisition High CPU useage - Windows 10


    WIA is using up to 17% of my CPU usage and it gets stuck doing so and therefore my HP laptop fan never turns off. I've stopped the process using task manager but then it eventually starts running again. Also, obviously when I stop it , I can no longer use my Epson es-400ii scanner.Help please.

    :)

    Windows Image Acquisition process - high CPU usage


    I have this service running on a clean install of Windows 10 - it is set to automatic.

    Do you have a scanner or external camera you want to plug in? If not as a workaround you could stop it and set it to manual in services.msc. I just tested it and my built in webcam still works with it stopped.

    Windows Image Acquisition process - high CPU usage


    Hello,
    from some reason, a process called "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA), which I've never seen before is running and using about 30% CPU.
    I read in MSDN that "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) is the still image acquisition platform in the Windows family of operating systems starting with Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me) and Windows XP."

    Does that mean that from some reason my laptop's camera is running now? Maybe my laptop was hacked?

    Thanks!
