CPU Usage constantly at 100%

I have had this problem for about a month after I cleared a bunch of Malware problems. I installed a few programs after that to prevent any future Malware attacks.

Right now, I have only IE open and it is at 100%. Sometimes when it goes down, if I go to a new website, it will go right back up to 100% and freeze me. Right now, though, it's not moving from 100%.

On a side note, around the same time that this problem started to happen, some of my mpegs stopped working. They won't play in Windows Media Player or any other program. I tried playing on with Divx and the CPU Usage went to 100% and it has stayed there, even after I closed Divx. Some of my mpegs work and some don't. I am only mentioning this in the case that the problem is related. An expert would know better than me. By the way, the error I get when trying to play mpegs with WMP is: 0xC00D1199: Cannot play the file

In any case, this 100% CPU Usage is killing me. I don't know if I should post a Hijack This log. Just in case, here it is: (thanks iin advance!)

edit: attach HJT log

actually most of the processes look normal except for 2, doubt he has spyware...

however in the processes in task mamager have you sorted the list by cpu usage, to possibly see what is using so much cpu?? if you can find that process perhaps we can do a quick search on it, see if its had a known issue before.

yeah, thanks for that HPDV8315LOVER-

but, my post is clearly not about Malware.

AitrusSkyy, I don't have many things taking up that much. When I get home later I will post again.

Ok, ill check up when you post again. Also check and make sure your computer has good circulation with air and the fan is working... sometimes if things overheat they can not work correctly...

my guess is though there is a single process that is causing the issue, if I know which one, I may be able to walk you through a fix.

Upon a better review and lil research of those 2 processes that seems unfamiliar to me... I think I may have found something to help you, or something that "may" be the issue...

its related to that process you have running called

C:\WINDOWS\system32\lvhidsvc.exe

Its not spyware, its part of some tv software or something

lvhidsvc.exe file information
The process TV Remote HID Service or Lifeview ® TV Remote HID Service belongs to the software TV Card or Lifeview ® TV Card by Philips (www.philips.com) or Animation Technologies Inc (www.lifeview.com.tw).


And take a look at the first 10 user reviews on this process...

User Comments

From the lifeview site I found this...


A04 My remote control uses too much CPU Power
We received feedbacks from end-users that the Remote Control Service uses too much CPU Power, in the Task-manager the process !ˇ±lvhidsvc.exe!ˇL reaches up to 99%. If you have the same symptoms, please download from our driver section a patch file for the remote control, which corrects this problem.
FlyTV Prime
FlyTV Platinum



for the prime the update is here... http://www.lifeview....e_3x_series.htm

for the platinum
http://www.lifeview....tv_platinum.htm

I would uninstall your shiz, download both the application and driver package for whichever of those you have.

Install the drivers first, then application...

Both of the driver updates for either product were released this year 2006/05/29 and they say this fixes the issue. Good luck and let me know :whistling:

hey there,

upon further review, i do not have either the prime or the platinum. i have the "Tv Tuner Card 7130"
It looks like it's made by the same company. the user manual looks almost identical.

I noticed that the prime is 3.25, the platinum is 3.23... mine is 3.20
i am not sure if i should install either of these?

Memory Loss

WinXP Unload DLLs: Go to Start - Run - type in "REGEDIT" without quotes and press enter. The Registry Editor opens up. Now use the lefthand explorer pane to find this key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" Still in the lefthand pane, right click on the Explorer folder and choose "New - KEY". Give it a name of "AlwaysUnloadDLL" (without quotes and capital letters are important). Inside that key change the default string to 1 and close regedit and reboot.

This tweak is perfect for low resource systems. The drawback of using this is a very small slowdown in the initial opening of programs,


see if that works

I might be headed in the wrong direction, but this has helped several people who have had 100% CPU, which was apparently from a corrupt or full index.dat. In any case, the worst that could happen is your computer would be cleaner. :whistling:

Download CCleaner from http://www.snapfiles...t/ccleaner.html
  • Install it. Then start the program.
  • In the area designated as "Cleaner Settings", Make sure the Windows tab is the selected tab.
  • Under the category of "Internet Explorer", UNcheck all boxes except for the first two boxes (Temporary Internet Files and Cookies) and the box called Delete Index.dat files.
  • UNcheck the box next to the category called "Windows Explorer."
  • Under the category of "System", UNcheck Empty Recycle Bin.
  • At the top, click on the tab that says Applications.
  • UNcheck EVERYTHING! If there is a category called "Firefox", then leave the Cookies option checked.
  • Now click on Analyze. When it is done analyzing (it could take several minutes since this is your first time using ccleaner), click on Run Cleaner.
After it is done deleting the junk files, including index.dat, restart your computer. After it has restarted, see if the problem still occurs.

go start...run...type in .........msconfig.... click start up tab......disable any program that requires updating at startup....like norton etc....or disable them all ....then restart.....go back to safemode...tick one at a time .restart...do this to each one until you notice which one is using your resources....


you can check your task bar Ctrl..Alt..and >>>delete

do you have real time player......look for this in task bar under process..\realsched.exe...end process ....it real time uses lots of memory
