Audiodg.exe Performance Alert High Cpu
» Upgraded my pc from vista to Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. When playing mahjong.exe game I always get the following alert from Norton 360 v5: 7/1/2011 7:30 AM,Info,High CPU usage by: Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation(program Description). DriverFinder scanned and informed that drivers were uptodate. No Action required
The audiodg.exe file hosts the audio engine for Vista, and from what I hear Windows 7 as well. All the DSP 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. Unfortunately, this can also lead to some problems, as I experienced. Some audio effects can consume CPU and memory if not properly coded. How do we fix the problem? Lets take a look.
In order to fix the high CPU usage, I disabled the audio enhancements processed by the audiodg.exe file. To disable the audio enhancements, use the following steps:
1. Right-click the speaker icon in the lower right corner.
2. Select Playback Devices from the menu. A list of devices should appear on the screen.
3. Double-click the device that has a green checkmark. The properties windows for that device should open.
4. Click the Enhancements tab at the top.
5. From the list of enhancements, uncheck all of them, or click the Disable all enhancements checkbox.
6. Click the OK button to save your changes and close the window.
7. Click OK to close the Playback Devices window.
Once I disabled the enhancements, the movie played without any issues. I also didn't notice any difference in sound with the enhancements disabled. If I do want to use sound enhancements, I'll stick to the the options provided in the application.
But it is unavoidable to encounter virus attack and get infected sometimes. In order to keep my system on normal working state, I've installed DLL Suite to safeguard my pc against any intrusion from viruses like Trojan:Win32/Comsirig. The reason I chose it is easy to use and quite helpful.
