    Why System & Compressed Memory is using 20% cpu ?


    I noticed the C P U fan spinning @ 5950 rpm and decided to consult the task manager.
    The System & Compressed Memory is using 20% of the cpu. Why ?
    Thank you.

    Hi, this has been discussed a number of times, and you will find useful information if you search the forum using the white search box above and enter
    System & Compressed Memory

    There is no one answer- several have been noted, so I can't tell you definitively, I'm afraid.

    You'll find a couple of answers common to some, and you'll find some struggling with technical analysis to try to identify what's happening in their particular case.

    Please make a note of what you try, and post back either that or what worked for you if you find a solution. Good luck.

    System & Compressed Memory is a not a process that can be ended on the task manager (disable for this process) ;
    for a couple of hours this process occupied 24% , then by itself (I have not closed any application) it went nearly to zero ; a couple of minutes ago I realized the cpu fan was in high rotation once again and there it was syst. and comp. mem. using 24%.
    I noticed that many people has the trouble of ram memo overuse but not CPU. Thank you for your post.

    See this thread where one person actually fixed his high system usage:

    Hi, I never suggested trying to end that process. I did point you to how you can find threads that contain answers people have found. Here's the search I recommended... please try it.

    Hi , I know you did not suggest to end this process and I did not state you did it. Perhaps we misunderstood each other.
    Thank you very much.
