    Creators Update: number of processes


    Hi.
    I've upgraded my Win10Home to Creators Update and I noticed that the number of running processes is almost doubled. What's happening?

    Hi, whilst waiting for someone who has the CU to comment, suggest you post a screenshot of your task manager illustrating this, and perhaps comment on whether your typical total memory use has risen. (That's a bit less than obvious, unfortunately, as your page file usage is also a major aspect)

    I came across a comment on Ars Technica that related services previously managed by a single svchost.exe process have now been given their own svchost.exe instances (to make the OS more robust). So there are quite a few more processes running.

    I don't recall when it happened, but at some point MS changed the way it manages service processes. In the old, Windows 7 days, there were always many services that shared a single SvcHost process, and now, if you have enough memory, it will run those services stand-alone (it still runs them in groups if your memory is below a certain threshold).

    You need over 4GB from memory - this change was done a long time ago on Insider versions.

    Hi dalchina.
    I'm writing from my desktop Win10Pro. I did the update on my notebook (Win10Home). At the present time I cannot do a screenshot but I think jimj's right (in the post after yours): I didn't notice higher CPU usage and, after all, after the boot used memory is almost the same (about 17-18%, if I remember correctly, on 8Gb RAM).

    I think probably that's the reason. Thank you jimj.

    I just clean installed the Creators Update on a VM yesterday. I fired it up this morning, connected via RDP to it, and according to Performance Monitor on the Performance tab, my # of running processes on boot was 105, it dropped to 102, went up to about 110.

    After about 35 minutes ( i had a meeting), it had settled in at 105.
