Windows 10: 100% CPU usage. Solved

  1.    13 Feb 2016 #1

    100% CPU usage.

    Hi all. I sometimes use Xilisoft audio convertor and it puts CPU usage through the roof, sits on 100%. I do not use other progs to compare this to. Consequently PC slows down sometimes freezes, web slow to load etc. Is this normal. New install of win 10, 2 months ago. 8 gig ram. What do you think. CPU is about 3 years old. All other components have been replaced in a short period. Thanks.

    I just checked the system requirements on their website and you should be able to run it on your system. I would contact Xilisoft about your problem. You could also try a free audio converter to see if it's a problem with the Xilisoft program.

    I tried Freemake Audio Covertor and its in the mid to high 50's. Will dump Xilisoft. Would the current % be reduced with a CPU upgrade. Thanks for your help Winuser.

    Looking at your specs ( if that is in fact what you are running), it should work but its gonna push your system to the limit.

    Yes, still the same badrobot. Do you think a CPU upgrade would be in order.

    I would think so. Any form of conversion process takes a significant amount of CPU and memory resources.

    Conversions are very CPU intensive. You can never have enough muscle. But it should never freeze - just slow down. I would use another program. This is the one I use.

    I guess given that its now in the mid 50% range i might leave as is for a while and just wait and see. Thanks for all the help.
