    Earlier the process was using %50 of my cpu and I was affraid to simply erase it.
    However, simply deleting the vm_sti.exe haven't caused a side effect yet.
    So it seems like the problem is solved.

    Thanks you for your help,
    Erdem

Hi,

Your post ..."C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE...clean this from my pc..." would mean remove/delete.

Initially, pls try to:

  • Uninstall the Philips SPC 200NC;
  • Run in Safe mode and delete C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE;
  • goto Start, Run, type "msconfig", click on Startup, uncheck reference(s) to C:\WINDOWS\VM_STI.EXE;
  • open Windows Task Manager, Applications (or Processes), highlight VM_STI.EXE, click on End Process button.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Svchost.exe: 50 - 70% CPU load The SVCHOST.exe is started from C:\windows\system32


Unless you have a program to identify it, you won't be able to tell just what program this is associated with. You can actually have 2-3 instances of this running.
Here's what you do: Go to this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals
Download the process monitor. It will show you what files are associated with which process and allow you to see if you can safely kill the process.

I cant download anything on my pc, it says winssnotify.exe unable to locate this application has failed to start because cert.dll was not found reinstalling may fixt it, and also it says, RUNDLL error...


winssnotify.exe is a program that is associated with windows "One Care." Unless you specified otherwise, you should see the One Care icon near running programs (area near the clock, on the bottom right of your screen). Go to Control Panel, uninstall/install programs and Reinstall or repair One Care. One Care is legit, and has firewall/virus options associated with it. If you recently uninstalled the program or installed another antivirus program, that may be your issue. If you uninstalled it, there may be files that were not removed or another program may have identified Onecare files as spyware. If you recently did anything like a "registry cleaner" or supposed "scan" of your system from a less than reputable online source, that can definitely be your issue. If you never downloaded Onecare, the program may be an imposter. It should be located under program files in the one care folder. If you do have this program, Onecare has a website scan to help users with problems. Hope this helps. Leave a comment if you need further assistance.

You should try to test your memory (before windows boots.See download) to make sure the sticks are good. Download this. Next try using a program called Process Explorer to locate hanging modules of your computer. This will help you narrow it down.

Laptop computer lagging horribly


You have something running in the background that is eating up the CPU useage. You need to identify which process is doing this.

Use the built in task manager, using ctrl-alt-delete to bring it up, and see which process is at above 90% cpu usage. Then post back here what you find.
