    Gllitchy Cryptographic services or twitch desktop


    So I've been monitoring a minor glitch or annoyance with certain applications, Battlenet app is one and twitch desktop. I'm on Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

    I see the Windows Cryptographic service hitting the CPU a little more than it's supposed to and this causes the battlenet app and twitch to sort of spin ( I can launch games and stuff still) but the advertisements , videos and other content is just not there.

    Once I stop the Windows Cryptographic service, things start working normally like they should. After a few hours the problem repeats and I have to once again stop the service or exit the applications causing the issue. One other fun fact:: I can exit the twitch desktop application and cryptographic services goes back to normal operating processes so I've been doing that now instead of stoping cryptographic services. When the problem happens It seems to hit the CPU about 10% though soon as I launch the twitch desktop which refuses to let me login. I've also tried re-installing twitch desktop numerous times and it does not help the issue.

    I can find no logs and nothing in event viewer to identify the problem.

    If anyone has any information, I'd be glad to hear. Windows updates are up to date and I've tried reloading windows several times but this keeps happening.

    All drivers are also up to date.,

    Hardware:

    Motherboard:ASUS Maximus Hero X
    CPU: Intel I7 8700K
    GPU: ASUS ROG 1080-GTX-TI (3 fan OC version)
    RAM 32GB of Corsair Vengenance DDR4 RAM
    PSU: 1200 watt Coolermaster
    SSD: Samsung EVO 960 1TB M.2



    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Update: I did a complete re-install of Blizzard Battlenet app and it hasn't been doing this as often. The biggest problem now is TWITCH desktop, I've tried both beta and live versions of twitch desktop and it still happens.

    I've also tried to isolate the problem using the application Process monitor but could not find any information valueable that lead to me believe there is an error or problem with the service.

    I've also run through SFC /scannow and found no corruption. Other than this my hardware is working just perfectly fine

    Cryptographic Services does act like a passthrough and works with the certificates. It is possible that your game is at fault. See this for how to fix and see how it works. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/crypt...provider-error Do not download the tool posted on that link. The Windows Club has a lot of decent stuff on it. Another culprit is DirectX. See the following how to re-register the DLL's. Installation of DirectX Failed due to Cryptographic Services error

    Thank you, but the issue is I am not getting any errors in any of the applications that are affected by this. I tried a few things including SFC /SCANNOW and it found some corruption, fixed them but yet this problem still persists.

    I checked dxdiag and it's not showing any problems. I Press F12 while loading the twitch Desktop and can see time-outs occuring while cryptographic services is "freaking out" but soon as I stop it, the connection is made. I see the publishers certificate but have no idea what cert store but it appears valid and trusted and has a valid signer so I don't think it's the providers cert by any means. I tried contacting twitch interactive about it but I got nothing but silence from them on it.

    Since Twitch is causing the problem, Amazon owns it. The problems with Twitch have been known for a very long time.

    This specific problem? might you know of a link some where that shows someone else who might be having it? I looked all over and it seemed I was the only one. It doesn't happen on my laptop so I thought maybe something unique with my desktop setup. Regardless I have found a way to work around it but it's just flat out annoying for the most part.

    Google is your friend. It has been known forever that the Twitch.TV app's have caused issues with Windows. The only work around is to not use it. I do not even use the app on my NVIDIA Shield, because it causes it to lock up and crash.

    I've actually googled and searched through twitch support site and found nothing of the sort of this problem explained or even admitted by Twitch being a problem. I'll keep trying to see if I can find it through other advanced searches. Many thanks.
