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%.

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

I'm in the process of downloading the hotfix, however I don't think that is the problem...

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.

VMware Tools isn't running. Should click on the autorun here?

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

QlemoDeveloperCommented:
That is helpful only if that process causes sustained CPU load.
