Hope this is the right forum for this.


I've noticed recently that my laptop has been running slow. i've ran scans and there's no Malware or Virus problems found.


In the task manager my CPU usage is jumping bettween 98-99% and most of that is from


Service Host: DCOM Server Process Launcher (6) (jumping between 34-43%)
64-bit Synaptics Pointing Enhance Service (jumping between 29-37%)


I've tried googling the problem but i'm getting many different ideas and stuff i just don't understand.


Thanks for any help

Open the Task Manage and make sure the Processes tab has been selected. 


Either use the snipping tool or Screenshot to create a image of the processes and post this in your topic.  I will provide instruction for creating a Screenshot and what you need to do to post the image/s.


This may be large enough that you will have to create two images.


How to make a screenshot and post it in your topic

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.


When you click on More Relpy Options  you will see Attach Files and Browse, click on Browse, this will open Pictures on your computer, click on the image you want to post, then click on Attach This File, then Add Reply.
