This is more of an advanced question, I'll go over what I've tried and I'd like to get opinions from people that know more about the windows services in question.


I am doing Neural Network training using Encog Workbench, this is CPU intensive maxing out all cores.

Encog Workbench is a Java program.


I have a handful of windows services that start utilizing large amounts of CPU ONLY when encog is training:


Wsearch - Windows Search

SSDPSRV - SSDP Discovery

BFE - Base Filtering Engine

Dnscache - DNS Client


Some things I know:


According to perfmon, Encog (javaw.exe) isn't doing any file IO, it's working directly out of memory and is not making any requests to the network.

I STOPPED wsearch and SSDPSRV and it SAYS "stopped" in perfmon but they are still utilizing cpu!

When I stop training in Encog, all of these services CPU use drops to zero.

I tried stopping Webroot antivirus, no change.

I tried turning off windows firewall, no change (including Base Filtering Engine CPU use)

I tried turning off windows defender realtime scanner, no change.


Not sure where to go from here.

This is fairly specialist software, I suspect relatively few here know much about or have ever used it. You might be better taking your query to the Encog forums, which you will find here -
