    How can I replace Runtimebroker.exe windows10


    Problems with runtimebroker.exe consuming cpu.
    How can I replace current version with my own
    version doing nothing.
    This is due to not finding any working solution
    so far.
    I promise, I tried all suggestions in this forum
    but problem returns, at least for me.

    I did the registry hack and so far all ok.

    Solutions thar work for some:

    • Registry hack: run regedit.exe, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker, change "Start"=dword:00000003 to dword:00000004. This will affect parts of Cortana, like new apps not showing up and you can't set reminders.
    • Switch your lock screen background (Settings -> Personalization -> Lock Screen) from Windows Spotlight to Picture. Preferably but not necessarily a picture of a ninja cat on a dinosaur ;-) Additionally disable the live tile of your photo app by right clicking on it.
    • Settings -> System -> Notifications & actions -> Disable "Show me tips about Windows"
    • Disable (at least to test) the P2P sharing in all settings>update>advanced>chose how updates are delivered. Set "updates from more than one place" to off.

    My question was about replacing RuntimeBroker.
    I get access denied even if I try with an elevated
    command window.

    The above regedit method worked PERFECTLY for me. I've just posted how dramatic the improvement was -- from a constant ~30% CPU usage to a relatively constant ~2% CPU usage. The other dramatic improvement was the reduction in my CPU (i5) temp from ~ 50 deg. C to ~ 30 deg. C. No error messages and no other problems. It flat works.
