Problem With High Cpu Usage And Audiodg.exe

» While playing games I get a message saying that I have high CPU usage 99% of one core. This is being caused by Audiodg.exe. I tried a couple of fixes that I found on line. I was told they would not work with my computer. I have a Dell XPS15 second gen i5. Has anyone run into this problem?

» DLL is comprised of the files with .dll, .exe, .sys, .drv and .fon extensions. Files with .exe extension are one of the favorite targets for malware (or viruses like Worm:Win32/Pushbot.AH). The vulnerabilities of the files with .dll, .exe and .sys extensions can be exploited to perform illegal purpose, and that is one of the main reasons of computer problems. Instead of copying in any additional files, the malware tend to modify existing files - typically an "exe" or "dll" file - and re-write it to include the malware's own code. The infected system file would inevitably be removed or quarantined by anti-malware programs, leading to the abnormal operation of the system.

The most common symptoms of .EXE file errors are slow PC speed, high CPU/Memory usage, system freezing and crashing. In case that Audiodg.exe file or any other .exe file is infected, the safest approach, by far, is to reinstall Windows. But given how painful that is, the alternative that follows it is much more practical. That is to use DLL error fixer. The purpose to release DLL Suite is free our users from being by annoyed by this kind of issue.

DLL Suite has a built-in feature of Fix EXE Virus, specially targeted to fix virus infection problem and thus fix slow PC performance.

    All the DSP [Digital Signal Processing] and audio processing is performed within this file. Vendors are able to install their own DSP and audio effects into the audio pipeline, which will then be processed by audiodg.exe

    In order to fix the high CPU usage, disable the audio enhancements processed by the audiodg.exe file. To disable the audio enhancements, use the following steps:

    a. Right-click the speaker icon in the lower right corner.

    b. Select Playback Devices from the menu. A list of devices should appear on the screen.

    c. Double-click the device that has a green checkmark. The properties windows for that device should open.

    d. Click the Enhancements tab at the top.

    e. From the list of enhancements, uncheck all of them, or click the Disable all enhancements checkbox.

    f. Click the OK button to save your changes and close the window.

    g. Click OK to close the Playback Devices window.

    High CPU usage happened again. All I was doing was playing minesweeper while talking on the phone. Got message that I was using at least 100% of one CPU. Thank you for trying to help me but it did not work.

Tried updating my realtek sound drivers. No luck. Called Norton support. They say its a HP problem. Diagnostics test for sound card came back fine. 6 gigs ram memory no problem. Something is causing it!

  4. NINA IVINS replied on March 22, 2013: » I had same problem. Run Win 7, completely up to date. In Task Manager I saw audiodg.exe seeming to run more than about anything else and thought that must be the CPU hog. Turned out it was TaskHost.exe that was doing it. Easy to test it yourself. Just kill that process and watch everything quiet down. It's harmless and will restart after a while or reboot. It's doing some housekeeping you can look into next.

  5. STEPHEN LUSARDI replied on March 22, 2013: » It is suggested that you use Resource Monitor to monitor CPU usage.

    Resource Monitor is a tool that you can use to monitor the usage of CPU, hard disk, network, and memory in real time.

    You can use the Performance tab in Task Manager to see how your computer's CPU is being used by Windows and other programs running on your computer.
