I've noticed this since installing RTM 10240. With previous Insider Builds this didn't happened. I've cleaned installed twice now and the problem persists. I notice also a "Windows Spotlight Background Taskhost" process relentlessly coming and going and taking resources together with Runtime Broker. Nothing seems to fix this and many other users are experimenting the same. This makes the computer hotter as the CPU gets no throttling rest.
I still have problem with the runtime broker, which uses a lot of CPU and so on, even if nothing is running on the computer. Because of it, when I close the laptop, it can't turn of by itself and still uses a lot of CPU, which will cause a problem one day... I know the idea of the application or whatever it is called (runtime broker) and it is supposed to take just a one or maximum two-three percentages of CPU, but it is not like that with me.
I have tried this one: How to disable runtime broker on Windows 8 RTM - YouTube and as well to go in the registry and set some value from 3 to 4, I don't really remember the exact things, I just saw a topic in some forum about it and the people there said, that it works. BUT not really for me.. I will add a screenshot of my task manager to see, what do I mean:
after upgrading to windows 10 my laptop fan always working fast when i checked this issue, i see runtime broker in task manager with high resourse usage when i click on end task, everything be normal... but runtime broker run itselft immediately ...i googled this issue but i couldn't find a useful solution.
Again today, when cleaning cookies and trying to find where the pop-ups came from I traced it to IE.. Well I do not use IE nor do I use Edge which is constantly running. I still love Firefox and Chrome.
I went to Microsoft and there is info on there saying to uninstall it. Did that and still. I am very agravated only because it was hacked somhow, I did manage to remove the culprit but I hate the fact that I do not do anything to get into trouble and IE seems to.
I am plagued by software running in the background such as backup that pops up a window over what I am working on. If I am busy typing and fail to notice my typing is wasted! It is extremely irritating. It isn't a particular Win 10 issue I suppose but that is what I am using.
Is there a Windows setting I can configure or is this purely in the hands of the rogue software?
since installing windows 10, initially fine now recently my hard drive runs constantly even when idle, it slows everything down and is becoming a real pain especially going online! When it is doing this there seems no obvious reason, i.e. it is not downloading updates, running defrag or disc check.
I've just installed windows 10 on my laptop. Initially a box on the left hand side telling me about cortana kept popping up so I switched cortanat off. Now the box just keeps popping up constantly, asking me to start typing to search the web or for apps etc.
I'm not 100% sure yet but it seems to be connected to scrolling down but also seems to be popping up quite randomly. In the last half hour it has popped up at various intervals from as little as 10-20 seconds to as 'long' as 2-3 minutes. There is no 'close' box and I can't see how to get rid of this really annoying feature.
I just recently bought a new laptop with windows 10 pre installed on it. The issue I'm having is that my connection to internet keeps disappearing even though I'm still connected to my wifi. On my former laptop, I didn't have this issue (windows 7) so I'm quite convinced the problem isn't with my wifi or router.
I've searched on this topic but only finding people with same problem but difference is that they UPDATED TO windows 10 while I had it pre installed.
My drivers are updated to the latest versions and I'm not sure what's causing this problem but it's really getting annoying now.
Recently I have had a repeating issue with the (egg) timer running constantly. I have been unable to stop it or to close the current program or web page which appears to be involved. What is happening? I thought it might be due to RAM running too low but that does not seem to be the case --- I can keep a constant check on RAM and use utilities to free it up at will. So if not RAM, what is it and what can i do about it?
I'm seeing System Settings Broker "stopped working" in the reliability history. Additionally, I'm seeing a lot of issues with the Windows Shell Experience Host in the event viewer. What happens is that the action center is not accessible (clicking on it does nothing), and hitting the Win key to bring up the start menu does nothing.The support over at answers.microsoft.com is pathetic.URL...
My windows 10 Alienware laptop randomly blue screened and its not to shocking seeing, as all our windows 10 computers seem to bluescreen like its going out of style. but I googled the error tag and proceeded to fix it. The error was a Nvidia driver outdated and I then updated.
But I realized my background changed and to my horror was the same background as my primary PC (desktop gaming rig) There are a few ways the laptop and the desktop are connected Steam Geforce etc/Im a little concerned because I'm almost positive I have never once downloaded the same wallpaper on this laptop. and why it would steal my desktops wallpaper and replace it after BSOD I dont understand.
the BSOD was "System Thread Exception Not Handled".Here is the first set of my dxdiag.txt right after the bluescreen. too much text for an upload site

I have a Surface Pro 3 with windows 10 ENT. Everytime I right-click on files that aren't system icons (my computer and things like that) I get this message:
I have booted with a clean boot. I have corporate antivirus that I cannot remove and I do have the classic start menu app installed ( I have removed this in the process of trouble shooting but have since reinstalled it as it had no positive effect)
Here is all the log info I could find from event viewer (entries are separated by ************):
Faulting application name: explorer.exe, version: 10.0.10240.16603, time stamp: 0x56553bcd
I have 8GB of RAM, and even with just Chrome and Discord open I'm somehow using up 87% of my RAM, another major issue I have is system and compressed memory, I've noticed that it tends to build up the longer the PC is on for to the point where it's using at least 300MB and my RAM claims to be at 99% capacity and then my computer just starts lagging like crazy and any game will have fps of roughly 5 when I'd normally get well over 60 (I know this isn't the place for gaming but it's the easiest example for me to think of ), Task Manager recognizes that there is 8GB of RAM so there shouldn't be any issue with the sticks themselves.
Is this normal and something I should just accept whilst having 8GB or is something not right?
When I was running Windows 8.1, I had this same problem. Upgraded to Windows 10, issue persisted, until I reset the PC (August). After I reset, CPU usage was normal. A few weeks ago, though, CPU usage has jumped right back up to 100% (per Task Manager). I've tried running malware/virus scans, updated SSD firmware, looking for resource-hogging processes, and none of it has been conclusive.
