Windows 10: Too Many 'Audit Success' Security-Auditing Events Happening

    Ouch! Now I'm starting to understand more fully why this is making you miserable. I'll chew on this over dinner and get back to you later this evening with any thoughts I might come up with. In the meantime, you might want to grab the Sysinternals Process Explorer and watch it along with Resource Monitor (built into Windows) to see what's happening with your CPU as these hiccups are occurring. This might give some insight into where the resources are being consumed.
    Back later!

    Still chewing, but so far not getting anywhere. All I can think of is that the audit success stuff might be a red herring. Sounds like the real issue is that something, perhaps related to audit events completing successfully, is consuming most of your PC's CPU resources. I still think the process explorer/task manager (details/CPU consumption ranking) and perhaps resource manager approach to seeing what's happening on your system is likely to provide more insight. You should also take a look at the discussion in the recent TenForums thread "Windows 10 -- high CPU usage is a real issue" to see if it sheds any light on your situation.

    I'll keep digging around and see if I can come up with anything more specifically focused on the symptoms you mention, especially those related to security audit success events. So far, no joy, though.

    Stay tuned,

    Thanks Ed,

    I've done some monitoring with the process explorer and resource monitor and the CPU usage is staying low 2-5 % while the beeping is occurring. All that I see of interest is spikes for the GPU up to 100% then back down. Could that be indicative that something is going on?

    I use AVG free edition vs. 16 and Spybot - Search and Destroy 2.5, but I've never had problems with either of those. Did a full scan with both. . . no fix.

    Thanks again for your help and thoughts. . .

    Eureka! There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to when it would beep. No specific programs, no additional CPU usage, etc. AND, since the beeps sounded identical to what happens when you unplug a USB cable, I swapped out the mouse with an old one. So far. . . no more beeps. no more freezing. Fingers crossed that this may have been a much simpler fix than originally imagined. Thanks again Ed for the help! Hope you had a nice dinner out on Saturday!

    Dear JJ:
    You're very welcome. Glad you were able to work it out. Failing hardware/intermittent problems can real get your tearing your hair out (and if you check my photo, you'll see those days are long behind me ;-). Hopefully, this solves your problem.

    Just to add to this mystery, I have the exact same problem with two additional pieces of info.
    These hiccups eventually slow down and stop after I've been working for a while.
    I occasionally get a message that the last usb connection I made wasn't successfull.
    My system has been stable for months with no new additions and no new usb connections.
    I will try unplugging them one at a time to see if that changes anything.
