System (Processes in Task Manager)

Hey guys, I'm hoping someone here can help me, I can follow instructions easily so if there's any tutorials or whatever, I'm on the ball. ;)

Well I was watching a movie the other day, and it must have been every 3 or 4 minutes it kept lagging for a few seconds (stopping/going slow/etc..). My PC never used to do that, which is strange.

But I compared my Processes to my brother's, and well, my 'System' is always running at 67,000k or more. And his was at 30k... :flowers:

Some screenshots if you need any help of what i'm running.

Cheers people. :thumbsup:
Please get back to me. :trumpet:

Hello HelpIsOnItsWay!
What you can do is check with Process Explorer which applications are behind the "SYSTEM" that are consuming the memory. Also check for the presence of malware.

Mm thats weird to be quite honest...

run a super anti spyware scan via downloading that..
then try a Spybot search and destroy...
if any of them turn up anything, screenie it then post it before you remove it, these are both advanced programs...

maybe a hijck this log will be helpful but i dont specilise in this place so dont post any logs yet.. :thumbsup: jsut a screenie of results from the scans i asked

I have just been researching some more, and people claim it's AVG's fault, but if it is, I don't know.
For more information, yes, i do run avg.

Download a fresh AVG , save it to My Documents or the Desktop
Uninstall the AVG you have
Restart the unit
Install the fresh AVG
Watch the screens & when given the option choose to do a Custom install
Take the checkmarks out of the boxes by Linkscanner & Additional Languages
Complete the install.

If you still have the problem try this,

It looks like you have Malwarebytes running constantly.
Go to the Task Manager & stop [end Process] for mbamservice.exe & then try it.
With the Malwarebytes "real time scanner" constantly running every page [or frame] is scanned for malware.
Unfortunatly Malwarebytes can't keep up with a movie & gets "clogged up" causing lag.
It simply can't scan at the rate the frames change for a movie.

fairjoeblue, i followed your advice, after i uninstalled avg, it went back down to around 300k...strange.

So what do you think is making it stay so high?
i've un-ticked linkscanner + additional languages

The Link Scanner in AVG is another basically useless "feature" that was added just to make a "newer" version.
The Link Scanner will suck up some resources.
The Link Scanner is actually ruining AVG's reputation
I've read a lot of posts by people [ on sevral forums ] that have quit using AVG because there unit slowed down after installing ,or upgrading to, the new version

What browser are you using ?

If you have IE 7 go to the Control Panel
Double click Internet Options
Click Advanced
Scroll down to Security
Locate the "Phishing Filter"
Put a dot in the circle by Disable Phishing Filter
Click Apply Click OK.

MS wised up & dropped the "Phishing Filter" on IE8

The "Phishing Filter" is a IE7 only thing.
