  1. Windows reducing speed of processing of long running program


    I am a retired systems analyst. In my free time I work on various projects I have long put to the side in windows 10 pro. Some of them involved long running programs. I have been trying to get one in particular to run recently. In the past it took 3-4 hours. Currently it is taking 5-6 days. In watching resource monitor and task manager during its run I have noticed that the cpu never gets above 10% usage and the hard drive more than 33% total. For my program it is more like 0.1%-2% cpu and hard drive reduced for an hour or so to less than 10mb/sec. My research indicates that increasing the priority will only add 1% performance increase max. And that is what I have observed.


    Why is the execution being so limited when no other program is running?


    How can I get the program to execute with more cycles and thus faster processing?

    :)

    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.

  4. Windows reducing speed of processing of long running program

    Open a running program

    Hi,

    Which program are you referring to?

    If Windows states that the program but can't see it, then I would suggest you check in the task manager if the program is running in the background. Right click on the start menu and select "Task manager" and check if the process is listed in the processes
    that are running currently. If yes, right click on the program and click on "End task" to end the process completely. Now restart the PC and try launching the program. If the issue persists, get back to us with the name of the application that you are trying
    to use so that we can check suggest accordingly.
