Alright I've had a real annoying problem lately. Up until recently; Audacity has been working fine with no problems. But a few days ago; it starts spiking up to 100% whenever I go into the window to open a file. I checked Audacity with Process Explorer and it appears that 4 instances of "ntdll.dll!TpCallbackIndependent=0x238" are using up all my CPU. My CPU has 4 cores and each instance uses 25% of my CPU.

 

What I've tried so far is scanning my PC with Malware Bytes and Spybot S&D; but that hasn't fixed it. I've also tried scanning the ntdll.dll file; but it always comes up as clean.

 

I'm at a loss at why this is happening.

 

PC Specs:

CPU: i5 3570k@3.40ghz(4 cores)

GPU:HD 7850

OS: Windows 7

RAM: 4GB

 

So how could I fix this?

I would uninstall Audacity...and see if problem emerges in another context.

Well I think found the problem. It has to do with Windows 7 and corrupted wav files. When browsing a folder with corrupted wav files; the CPU will jump to 100%.  Guess there's nothing I can really do but delete the folder with the corrupted files. But Microsoft should really fix this.

Microsoft...is not responsible for corrupt data files...so I disagree with your assessment.

File corruption is a routine event that happens...affecting both data files and Windows files.  The chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow are Windows tools that try to address file corruption, but try is all that they can do.
