NSRTray.exe maxing out my CPU

Posted on 2007-12-06
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
After NSR runs a scheduled backup overnight, NSRTray.exe just maxes out my CPU until reboot.  The backup seems to have ended fine.  If I kil the process, the CPU usage drops down, but NSR won't run again until reboot.  I lowed the priority to Low and this allows me to interact with my system, otherwise, it would be unusable until reboot.

Have you simply tried to uninstall, reboot and reinstall it?

Process Explorer for Windows v10.21

Double click NSRTray.exe. Then Select the Threads tab, and see what .exe or .dll is using the CPU, and then select it by double clicking it....and copying/pasting the call stack here.....

As well as Johnb6767's suggestion re Process Explorer, you could also try Process Monitor from sysinternals.  With those two tools you should be able to see exactly what NSRTray.exe is doing.
