Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Well, in the BIOS it is disabled.

Also, there are no rpcnet(p).exe or any service similar to that running.

The only RPC running is the Remote Procedure Call from microsoft.

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

OK, my virtual diagnostic powers aren't worth a penny Smiley Happy

 

You say that there is no rcpnet service running, but is there a rpcnet.exe process that is active? 

 

Delete the agremove.exe file and see if it miraculously reappears after reboot. If not,

there is something else wrong with your laptop...

 

Properties of agremove.exe file if you want to check before you delete it:

 

File description:   agremove.exe

Type:                  Application

File version:        8.0.826.0

Product name:    agremove

Product version:  0.0.0.0

Copyright:          2005 Absolute Software Corp.

Size:                   43.5KB  (44.544B)

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

No no no...You misunderstood me.

there is no rpcnet service working...

However,  RPC Locator from Microsoft is on, which should be on, if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Hehe, misunderstanding all over...

 

There are SERVICES and PROCESSES, two completely different things.

When you open Task Manager there are different tabs for each. Under Processes tab

there could be rpcne(p).exe listed, and under  Services tab there could be rpcne(p),

both without any additional information.

Since your BIOS agent is set to Disable, there should not be any active or listed...

 

Did agremove.exe reaper after you deleted it, or moved it to another place?

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

As I said, not in Services nor in Processes Smiley Happy

I think we had a little misunderstanding, that's all.

After being deleted-it does not reappear.

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Well, have no more "useful" ideas...

 

Only systematic tracking of processes and their activity can shed more light on the 

problem.

Get hold of free Process Monitor v.1.37, by Mark Russinovich and learn how to use it.

Very powerful tool when you learn how to use its filtering possibilities.

 

Besides that use a good tool to optimize services and task, many of them are

unnecessary. I am using Vista Manager v.1.5x and its tools for optimizing startup, tasks

and services. It also has  a very dependable Registry cleaning tool.

 

For instance, my Ultimate SP1 (32bit) with 72 additional programs installed, and full AV

protection, runs on only 37 Services and 4 Tasks. Most of the tuning was done with the

help of Vista Manager. 

Wish you luck in solving the problem, you will need it Smiley Happy

Thanks buddy, I hope that Windows 7 will be a little more reliable.

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Hmm.., Vista is remarkably reliable to me. On several laptops never a glitch, never BSOD,

and only problems related to other (poorly written?) software. It is a resource hog, and

that is why it needs additional tuning. Anyhow, I believe that Win7 will also not be very light.

 

Most troubles people experience with Vista is related to inadequate hardware and even

more to the bloatware that accompanies preinstalled Vistas on notebooks. Lenovo is no

exception, and sometimes looking at new, cheep, models I come to think that the only

reason for producing and selling such machines is to distribute the installed bloatware Smiley Happy

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Well, it seems as though I have some news.

I have tried to minimize the number of services and processes working, so if this happens, I can use Process Explorer to look at the memory and cpu usage per process on one screeen without scrolling.

The weird thing is - the CPU usage and Memory usage - on the graph - SPIKE to a 100, but there's not specific process that's causing it.

Extremely strange.

Re: Vista stutters, audio\video\mouse lags

Get a gadget called Multi Meter(D) v1.25. Then you can track the usage of separate cores

and memory on the Sidebar and at the same time in Task Manager have the Processes

tab active, with CPU Usage selected, so that the process with highest usage is at the top.

 

If you don't see any process jump to the top when CPU usage surges, then it is not related

to the system, but is probably some hardware\driver issue. 

 

And we're back...
