I would expect the CPU to be in high usage when waking up a system. The files that were in use, at the time of sending to sleep, must be copied from disk to the memory. This at times can take a while if a lot of programs and data were in use.
3.run a program called System Explorer all the time
Which pleaseI have anti-virus & anti-malware programs running all the time
Uninstalling SecureAPlus did solve the other problem, but had no effect on this one. But after using diagnostic startup & then Services, going thru every process, disabling some, setting others to manual & leaving some on automatic, 1/2 of this problem appears to be solved.If this topic is now solved as the other one
is by the uninstall of that SecureAPlus please mark it solved by clicking the mark solved above your opening post
KerishDoctor is installedI've been using Advanced System Care & related IObit programs for years & I like them enough to pay for them
It will boost your computer's speed up to 50%. You will notice a marked acceleration in the speed of your computer and its response time.
Clean up to 500 MB of garbage per day. It's the most advanced way to clean your computer of all sorts of accumulated digital "trash".
IMHO it is a wonder that the system runs with any manner of efficiencyReduce the risk of crashes by up to 30%. Our system registry error correction and crash prevention system reduces the likelihood of problems.
That did it !!!Try changing your power plan to high power and see if it changes anything.
I uninstalled SecureAPlus & that solved my other problem, "A Required Privilege Is Not Held By the Client (Windows 7). Apparently that program was treating every downloaded program as "dangerous" & since I uninstalled it I've been able to install the programs that were blocked.IMHO as seen on many occasions - both on this site and many others
This computer will never run smoothly until the system sorted out
IOBit is in use
KerishDoctor is installed
and SecureAplus was installed.
From their site
IMHO it is a wonder that the system runs with any manner of efficiency
and trying to sort problems on such a system is a waste of time
That said ArtNJnr must do as he wishes.
The choice is yours, as it must be, the computer will never run as it should whilst you have them installedThere are a couple IOBit programs I really like (Advanced System Care & SmartRAM), and Kerish Doctor has never given me a problem. Those programs do what they're intended to do & use very little CPU or RAM.
You may very well know more about computers than I ever will, as a semi-retired mechanical / automotive / manufacturing engineer & that's fine.The choice is yours, as it must be, the computer will never run as it should whilst you have them installed
