    DCOMLAUNCH SVCHOST Plug & Play, Hi CPU Usage

    I noticed every time I boot up I hear my computer fan speed up (as if the
    computer were working extra hard). When I check Task Mgr I notice SVCHOST
    running 30% + cpu at times. I checked the service running and it's the plug
    & play service.

    I found this to be the solution:

    This problem only occurs with audio drivers which do indeed have an
    'enhancements' feature. Not all systems show this in Control Panel, Sounds,
    Speaker properties, Enhancements tab. An improved driver would eliminate the
    delay.

    That was my point. "Latest" and "good enough' are two separate things. With
    drivers, they work, or they don't. This 'bug' would also happen if you used
    XP.

    Wheter it's vista or XP do you think it should be serching for hardware all
    the time when your not using Sound or audio? Just booting up.

    Re: DCOMLAUNCH SVCHOST Plug & Play, Hi CPU Usage

    I am also suffering high CPU usage due to svchost.exe from DcomLaunch and PlugPlay services. There is no "Enhancement Tab".

    I am using Asus A8Jr notebook running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. The Audio system is SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio.

    What shall I do now?
