Okay, I know little to nothing about computers so please bear with me and my ignorance lol

My CPU usage is up to 100%. Three processes are running up the usage
DISCUpdMgr.exe --Running 50% of CPU
DISCUpdMgr.exe --Running at 25% (yes there is a second one)
DISCStreamHub.exe --Running at 25%

I'm afraid to just exit out of them since I have no clue what will happen if I do. Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Wendy91386 and welcome to Geeks to Go.

The 2 programs are part of DISCover Console. Per a couple sites

Disc Update Manager for Digital interactive's DISCover Console. Provider of on-demand video games


I assume you are running a computer with Media center installed because it comes installed.

Did the high CPU start all at once?
Do you recall using this program?
Have you installed anything recently?
This could also be a virus.

Based on what I found, it does not need to be running in the background.
After the response on the questions, we can look at where to go next to resolve it.

Info on DiscUpdMgr.exe
info on DiscStreamHub
