flow.exe HUGE CPU USAGE

HP ENVY

At times, things hang for 5-6 minutes, sometimes longer -- I can't even bring up the task manager.

flow.exe HUGE CPU USAGE


Do an extensive system testing from BIOS/UEFI diagnostics.

It'll take few hours to complete. Let me know the results.

flow.exe HUGE CPU USAGE

Had a similar issue; Flow.exe was taking up 15-20% CPU, and it was also causing Firefox (a Nightly 61.0a) to go up to 40-50% (sometimes even 70%) of CPU - the funny thing is that I had no multimedia (video, music etc) tabs open!

 

Killing Flow.exe would calm things down for a few minutes, but Flow would launch itself (in a minute or so) and start to wreak havoc again.

 

I didn't bother to try uninstalling/reinstalling; simply renamed my Flow.exe file (C:\Program Files\CONEXANT\Flow\Flow.exe) to _Flow.exe 😄

 

Been running with the change for several hours now, without any issues (sounds are working fine, without any CPU spikes)

 

Didn't restart the machine yet, will post back if restarting causes any issues 🙂
