High CPU on VMware Windows 7 VM

Hello Experts,

I have configured a Windows 7 VM on VMware ESXi 5.5

The CPU is being totally max'd out, see image, however I can't see anything from the processes that is causing the CPU to run at 100%.

Can you please help?

Cheers

In process Tab, can you click on "Show process from all users" and see which process is consuming more CPU ?

Seems Audiodg.exe is consuming a lot of CPU.

Could you apply Hotfix suggested in here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2670667 ?

After applied, restart machine and see how it is.

Experts,

The VM is running at 100% CPU even when all I've got open in my browser.

This is cray!

You help will be greatly appreciated

Cheers

You'll need to monitor the processes for at least a few minutes, to see if there are any suspects. In the last screenshot the CPU is 39% idle.

Use either the 32bit or 64bit setup app, whichever is appropriate.

Just click on Setup, that will then install the correct version.

i would also right click on svchost.exe and go to services
look at the services tab for the highlighted lines; should help identify what service(s) that process is controlling

QlemoBatchelor, Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
That is helpful only if that process causes sustained CPU load.
