CPU Usage stuck on 100%

Post by Tobblish »

As name says, it's stuck on 100% all the time.
I've been using Dark_Rainmeter for some time now and this happen 2-3days ago, haven't changed anything. (Else than added 6core support)
It just stopped working after an reboot.

Code: Select all

Have you got any AV that is analysing Rainmeter as it goes? Make an exception for Rainmeter.
Close all skins, decreases CPU usage? Try opening the skins one by one and see which one is the devil.

Did you install any new software or do an update of any sort before the reboot?
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

Yeah running Kaspersky but didn't change anything.
And the 100% load is only on the Dark_Rainmeter one.
Checked with illustro and it runs fine (even if it only shows 1cpu)

As with the updates theres 25updates done on the 13/4 (had the pc running for over 2weeks)
And almost all of them are safety updates.

Right, so only Dark_Rainmeter?
First of all, try emptying your recycle bin. I'm not sure if it was fixed, but there was a known bug with that plugin which caused the CPU to spike if you had to many items in it.

I'm running a copy of it and see no increase. Would you mind posting the code with your changes?
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

The recycle bin is empty, code is above in first post.
I changed back to the original but still same problem there.

Re: CPU Usage stuck on 100%

So you have six cores on your processor?

I just have a dual core, so the skin works fine for me, but only shows valid numbers for the first two cores, the other four in your skin show "100%", which is as expected. Perfmon seems to return "1" when asked about a core that doesn't exist, which Rainmeter sees as 100%.

We have improved the CPU measure since that skin was written, and you might find it better to use:

[MeasureCPU0]
Measure=CPU
Processor=1

[MeasureCPU1]
Measure=CPU
Processor=2

[MeasureCPU2]
Measure=CPU
Processor=3

[MeasureCPU3]
Measure=CPU
Processor=4

[MeasureCPU4]
Measure=CPU
Processor=5

[MeasureCPU5]
Measure=CPU
Processor=6

See if that fixes the issue.

Just replace this code in the skin:
