Heres and overview of my situation. Business running 5 PC's, 1 is the server. Every now and again the whole network slows down super slow, then after a few minutes goes back to normal... sometimes PC's lose connection to the Server all togeather then a few minutes later works fine.
Server motherboard went down a couple weeks ago and I replaced it with a new Gigbyte board with 4gig of RAM, I could not format and start from scratch, I had to just update the drivers and everything because I do not have the Install file for the POS Program we use.
I also thought maybe it was the network cables or the Switch, so I replaced all the network cables and got a Gigbyte switch... all PC's are running at 1 gig network speed.
Now the only thing i can think of is maybe the server is having issues, so here is a list of the processes and what I have found on them:
searchprotocolhost.exe “Microsoft Windows desktop search process”, I do not use Windows Search functions so I can remove this?
Searchfilterhost.exe “Microsoft Windows desktop search process”, I do not use Windows Search functions so I can remove this?
Taskmgr.exe needed windows file
Wmiprvse.exe “Windows Management Instrumentation” not sure if I need this?
Apcsystray.exe Program for the APC Battery backup the PC is plugged into.
Dtcallid.exe Part of POS Program: must keep
Diamondspool.exe Part of POS Program: must keep
Active-charge.exe Part of POS Program: must keep
Elodkmon.exe For the Touch screen monitor
Symlcsvc.exe Seems to be associated with Norton Antivirus (which was uninstalled 3 years ago) How do I remove?
Lmiguardian.exe Part of “Logmein” program, I use LogMeIn frequently
Logmein.exe Part of “Logmein” program, I use LogMeIn frequently
Explorer.exe Part of Windows
Ramaint.exe Says it’s associated with “RemotelyAnywhere” program, which I do not have… not sure if it’s associated with Logmein?
Essvr.exe I think it has something to do with the Gigabyte brand motherboard I have? Not sure what to do with it?
Elosrvce.exe For the Touch screen monitor
Dphost.exe Part of POS Program: must keep
Mainserv.exe Program for the APC Battery backup the PC is plugged into.
Svchost.exe Part of Windows
Igfxsrvc.exe “Intel graphics video card user interface process.” I use the onboard video on the Gigabyte motherboard… not sure if this is for that or not?
Ctfmon.exe Says it’s for “Microsoft Office” but I do not have Office on here… do I remove this?
Spoolsv.exe "Spooler SubSystem App" I’m guessing I need this to print?
Alg.exe Part of Windows?
Rthdcpl.exe For “Realtek Audio” which I do not use the Sound on this PC, how to remove?
Lmiguardian.exe Part of LogMeIn program
logmeinsystray.exe Part of LogMeIn program
Vttimer.exe “S3 Screen Toys graphics systray process” do I need this?
Isass.exe Part of Windows?
Igfxpers.exe For the Graphics Icon in the system tray, can I remove this?
Services.exe Part of Windows
Winlogon.exe Part of Windows?
Hkcmd.exe Some type of “hotkey” program from Microsoft, I do not use, how do you remove?
Csrss.exe “Client Server Runtime Server Subsystem” don’t know what this is?
Smss.exe Part of Windows
Searchindexer.exe This is a “search indexer” for the desktop, I do not use the Search feature in Windows so I assume I can remove this?
System Part of Windows
System idle process Part of Windows
Could something here be causeing this?
I was also thinking of using "PC Tune-up" to clean up the registry... not sure if that will do anything or even if that program is any good?
Or what else can I do?
Thanks all for the help!
