Dll Using high Memory

Dll Using Lots Of Memory

» I run XP on a Dell computer. I have recently started to encounter very slow response from my programmes. When I check the task manager, DLL application is using 300-350k of memory.

Best Answer

» The first reason coming into mind is lack of free space.Insufficient free space on Windows partition. Norm suggested is circa 15%, which would be about 15GB on that partition. You need to free up space...logical candidates are video, graphics, music files. I would also uninstall Ccleaner, Spybot, and Windows Defender...replace with SUPERAntiSpyware or something more respected.

It this is not the case. Then you may have virus infection. For all the .exe file related problems caused by adware, worms, viruses(Worm:Win32/Neeris), Trojan, spyware and malware, such as slow pc, high usage of CPU/memory, system crashes and so on, DLL Suite will be the best solution for you to troubleshoot and remove the exe virus infection automatically as a geek!

As we know, exe file is one kind of dll files. The exe file runs programs and can be used as a delivery system for viruses or other malicious programs. Therefore, you need to remove the virus infection at first.

But one thing needs to be clear: many associated dll files have been affected in the process of virus infection removal and registry cleanup, so we have to do the follows:

Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan.

    Then reboot your system and with no other applications running, look in the Task Manager, click the CPU column heading to sort the processes in order from top to bottom so the ones with the most CPU usage are listed first

    You would want System Idle Process to be first with the most CPU, since that is the free time your system has. 99% is about the best you can do there.

    I wouldn't expect to see such a high DLL usage of memory. 351,000kb etc. When all else seems quite low (excluding i.e. and perhaps windword).

    It may be that DLL isnt the issue at all. I am just assuming that since my computer almost stops, this could be the cause.

  4. ALAA AZIZE replied on February 19, 2013: » If you have been have power problems and having to force shutdowns with the power button, you should run disk checking with error correction too, but just work on one thing at a time so we don't get mixed up!

  5. NATALIE LINKS replied on February 21, 2013: » I suggest to reboot normally, let things settle down without opening any applications, then take a look at your Task Manager for any svchost.exe that might be running ok.

    I have 8 svchost.exe Process running and none of them are using more than 22K and the rest are less that 10K of Mem Usage. XP Services run under the svchost Process and it is normal to have several running, but they should not be going crazy.
