CPU intensive processes

From James Morano, E.T.C.A.

What are CPU intensive processes? When you open the task manager, you will be given a long list of processes that are running in the background. These include 00thotkey.exe, awwservice.exe, acdaemon.exe, acs.exe, alg.exe, apache.exe, apoint.exe, atieclxx.exe, atiedxx.exe, avastsvc.exe and many others in a long list. It might get overwhelming to see all those strange names. However, it is important to get to know the purpose of each of the processes in order to maintain the computer well. For example, you should know that the process avgcsrvx.exe is related to the AVG antivirus program and the avgnt.exe is a process related to the Avira Internet Security program. you may need these processes to make those programs run well.

How to know that a process is CPU intensive?

You should research about each of the processes like avp.exe, bcu.exe, brs.exe, btstackserver.exe, ccc.exe, ccsvchst.exe, cfp.exe and others on the internet to find whether they are CPU intensive or not.

What does CPU intensive mean?

CPU intensive means that these processes use a lot of CPU resources and memory which makes the computer slow. First you should make the list of all the processes that are CPU intensive and then find out the ones which are not needed for proper functioning of the computer like cfpupdat.exe, cli.exe, conhost.exe, consent.exe, daemonu.exe and df.exe. if you think these are unnecessary processes then just click on the processes and terminate them. This will great increase the performance of your computer and will make it run faster.

See you in next weeks! James
