    It is essential service, Windows starts it when needed, even when it is disabled.

    So, even though I changed the value to 4 in regedit, this Runtime Broker thing still shows up every so often stealing CPU resources. I even went back to make sure the value was still 4.
    I as well Camsi. Have found RB is "Back!"

    Setting to # 4 must not completely deactivate RB?

    I assumed that it is some sort of directed service, but can you explain how MS needs it as "an essential service", it would help clarify the question as to what it is really doing?

    Thank you

    It is used by Windows Store and since Windows slowly migrates its GUI into metro, some system apps might use it as well. It is best to disable some functions to keep it calm, like disable running background apps in Privacy settings, turn off live titles in Start and disable "Show tips about Windows" in Action Center.

    Interesting, Found some apps in (running background apps in Privacy settings), to be turned back on?

    Will watch these areas.

    With the value set to 4 it (Runtime Broker) doesn't seem to run as aggressively as it did before. So, when it piles up I just go into the task manager and stop it.

    How to stop "Runtime Broker" from running constantly in the background.


    Running win 10 Home 32 bit upgraded from Win 7 Home Premium
    I've tried most of the options I could find on the forums. Without success.
    Finally found a fix (for now anyways) using File monitor and looking for Runtime Broker, I was able to find a lot of activity on my pictures. Went to the photo app and removed the "Source" folder in the settings it had added by default.
    So far, runtime broker is no using <1% CPU and <10Mb of memory...

    From what I see, runtime broker is to manage metro / universal apps. The solutions I'm seeing is to uninstall store apps until you find the culprit.

    After Win10 Updates/Reboot, Groove Music and Pictures In Background!

    The Drill for Me When Runtime Broker Decides to Hog My CPU

    After a Windows 10 update-reboot, my computer sometimes "forgets" that is was previously configured not to run Groove Music in the background.
    Sooooo ... the machine of course bogs down due to Runtime Broker CPU over-usage.
    Here is how I quickly handle it:

    1. With TaskManager kill Runtime Broker (so I can do something on my computer without waiting for hell to freeze over)
    2. In settings>privacy>background apps turn off Groove Music and, if you have a lot of pictures, turn off Photos too.
    3. In Services, stop and then restart the Time Broker service (Run/Open services.msc). This re-launches up Runtime Broker task which now behaves per the settings you just fixed in #2 above.


    I would sure like to know what other settings I had set only to be changed randomly it seems on Windows 10 updates. Guess I'll have to wait until something bad happens.

    Hey guys, over here is a much larger thread on this process and file.

    Solved Runtime Broker Process - Page 6 - Windows 10 Forums

    You should definitely check it out and run Aegis as well. Post your replies there and let's have the mods close this one, unless there is a merge feature??? lol
