Every computer I get seems to have this issue after some time.

 

The idle temp runs really high, and my fan is always blowing.

 

 

Host processes for windows tasks is ALWAYS at the top.

 

What can I do?

 If a laptop, blow compressed air through the air intake ducts on the bottom.  If a desktop, remove the cover, and blow the dust out with compressed air, being careful not to touch components inside unless you are well grounded.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

The thing is, it's fairly new.

I'll try your advice, but I really doubt that's the case........

 

It's an asus K501-type laptop, with macbook-style air intake-exhaust architecture.

I honestly suspect some computer issues....

 

There must be some general solve-all threads that have compiled solutions to this?

Specifically, why is host processes for windows tasks EXTREMELY cpu heavy?

 

Could people please help me provide a way to diagnose it?

 

If it weren't for host processes, my idle temps would be perfectly fine.

 

This isn't a 24/7 thing, but it IS extremely frequent.

I seriously doubt the processes running would have much of an affect on your temperatures.  

 

Is this computer sitting on a solid surface where it can get proper ventilation?

 

How hot is the computer getting.  You posted 60C degrees, this is a little high, but not enough to be concerned with as long as it doesn't increase.  

 

Please take a screenshot of the task manager and post it here.

 

How to make a screenshot
 
1. Download and run A Thousand Words .
 
2. Follow the wizard to capture a screenshot
 
3. Use the built-in editor to resize, edit, or re-capture your screen shot. 
 
4. Your screen shot will be saved to your desktop when you finish the wizard.
 
You can post the screenshot in your next post as an attachment.  
 
Just below the area where you write text in a post there is the Post button, to the right of this is More Reply Options
