Over the last 2 days my CPU usage statistics have shot up to a level that makes operating very difficult. Checking the proccesses i can see that Kservice.exe is utilising the bulk of the CPU, getting up to around 50-60%. However, it rises and falls from 1-2% up to this maximum, spending maybe 2 minutes at the highest then dropping for 20 seconds or so.
I know that Kservice is associated with Iplayer and 4od, and indeed removing them and deleting the Kservice backup removed the problem. But i was using these programs for 6 months with no problem, then this?
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to what it may be? I confess computing is not by area of expertise so any help would be appreciated.
iPlayer is the BBC torrent service? I can't use that service from Japan, so I couldn't test it out for you. If it runs like other torrent services it may have been simply seeding or leaching an increased number of files. You may not have set limits on its bandwidth usage and it simply exponentially increased in usage as you increased your collection. I'm just guessing though.
Im now out of ideas, so will probably do what i first thought and have a proper cleanout and re-install of all software.
If the problem persists and you've got it narrowed down to that software, then I'd suggest you contact the vendor's support line. They may have a solution available.
