Hi All,

services.exe "Services and Controller App" is taking up 90% + of my CPU power most of the time. Does anyone have any idea why this should happen please?

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on a Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 laptop, single core Celeron M, 1.4GHz processor. Full model no. PSAACE - 00100PEN.

Additionally after so long the screen goes black with a lot of hard drive activity still occurring.

 

Could this be due to;

a) A virus?,

b) Low hard-disk space ( currently 1.55Gb )?,

c) Some hardware component about to pack up?,

d) Something else?

Does anyone have any ideas please?

 

Regards,

John

What functions are called very often? What does the stack count say?

Hi SpiritX and Andre,

Thank you both for your help & concern.

I'm not sure ( 100 % ) if a program called "Spiceworks Desktop" was the culprit.

However after running SFC /scannow and also scheduling a disk check which ran 100% with nothing untoward found, this evening I started my laptop, pressed F8, selected LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION and voila, my CPU usage is back to normal levels ( between 0 and 50 % ) and not running at 100% all the time.

:-)

I'm going to set a restore point ( where it is now ) and find an up to date virus checker that will run on WINDOWS 7.

The one my I.S.P for FREE provide will not run on Windows 7. :-(

I am also going to backup everything to my large external hard-drive after I've run a virus check.

I think I'll try Norton AntiVirus 2010 OEM from here as I've bought from ARIA before.>>
