  • 2. Backup error - The device reported an error on a request to write
    Hello. I am having backup problems. Am running Windows SBS2003 SP 1. Am backing up to an external USB hard drive using NT Backup. (Full through SBS Backup, and the Diff through a command line using NT Backup.) There is enough free space on the disc. I am getting the following error when doing a full or differential backup. This happens towards the end of the backup, after backing up other drives & partitions. Error: The device reported an error on a request to write data to media. Error reported: Invalid command. Error: D: is not a valid drive, or you do not have access. This leaves my entire backup unusable. This is reportedly fixed in a hotfix listed under KB 817688, for Windows server 2003. This is listed as also fixed in SP1. I read another post that this hotfix was denied to a user because they were already running SP1. They had previously applied the hotfix when running without the SP, which corrected the problem. After installing SP1, the problem returned, and Microsoft denied access to the hotfix. I am running SBS2003 with SP1, which was supposed to have corrected this problem. I am still getting this error. What can I do to correct this problem? Thanks, KT

es,

Next time I will capture what you are looking for.

I have Process Explorer (SysInternals) running
In the interim, when it pegged, I killed the capture agent, but the CPU load
continued and the process was queuing.dll!Dllinstall+0x1cf37

Does this help narrow the problem

Thx for all your help.

John

hat's a dll related to windows update, that's about all I know. Whether, or
how, it's related to your issue isn't known, though.

The output from tasklist would be more helpful, to me at least.

uys,

I reapplied and it still pegs. This occurs on only one of my PCs
(unfortunately - mine). I will reformat C: drive and re-install XP SP2 and
see if that clears it up.

Thx for your help.

1.svchost process (for update service) hogs CPU process

2.svchost process spike cpu 100 %

I have read the previous posts and am not yet getting a solutions t our 
problem.
Here is our situation.:
We rolled some windows updates this week on XP pro SP3 machines via WSUS.
Since then most machines on the network are staring up and then the SVCHOST 
process grab the cpu to 100% for about five minutes then it releases and the 
machines in question will work for sometime and then the svchost process will 
fire again.
I have noted also that outlook seem to be most affected application it 
freezes up when this svchost begins it's cycle.

I did a tasklist and found that on all these machines this process controls 
the following process:


svchost.exe                 1072 AudioSrv, BITS, Browser, CryptSvc, Dhcp,     
                                 dmserver, ERSvc, EventSystem, helpsvc,       
                                 lanmanserver, lanmanworkstation, Netman,     
                                 Nla, RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS,

                                 TrkWks, W32Time, winmgmt, wuauserv, WZCSVC  


Any ideas on the way forward?

3.svchost.exe - Using 100% of CPU after boot till I End Process

My svchost.exe is taking 100% of the CPU after boot. I'm lucky if I can even 
get into the Task Manager before my mouse freezes up with a nice little beep 
associated with the freeze. After numerous "slow" restarts, I can get into 
the Task Manager and end the process > svchost.exe > SYSTEM and the computer 
will go back to a normal CPU and things work again.

I have read many different articles and many say to turn off Windows Auto 
Update -- I have done this.

I use Spyware Doctor / AVG Free / XoftSpy  -- I have tried disabling them in 
the start-up menu...that doesn't seem to help. Anyway, I'm stuck and 
frustrated with the svchost.exe deal!!!

As an added FYI - svchost.exe is listed 12 times in my Task Manager (7 times 
with the word SYSTEM by it  -- 3 times with LOCAL SERVICE by it -- 2 times 
with NETWORK SERVICE by it).


I did try and install WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe  and when I run it it 
says "Install is not needed since WIndows Update Agent is already installed."

Any help on this is appreciated.

Thanks much.


4.100 % CPU and svchost process

Hi,

My PC is always running at 100 % CPU and is slow.
When I kill the process svchost process, the system comes back to normal and 
I can run all of my applications.
I have run all the spy, virus, performance software, but can not find 
anything wrong.

I have read that killing the svchost process is bad but it seems it is the 
only temp solution I have.

Any recommendation?

5.SLOW notebook, CPU at 100% all the time, explorer.exe hogging CPU

 	Using an Inspiron 2200. I have a 1.4GHz processor (Intel Celeron M). I use
WinXP Home. 20GB hard drive (I know it's small but I have 300+ GB worth of
externals, but that's besides the point, or is it?). 1.24GB of RAM. I have
every spyware and adware program on earth (the legit ones like Ad-aware and
Spyware Sweeper) and I run them regularly. I have a paid subscription to
Norton Internet Security, and I use it. I defrag and empty my temp files
regularly. I usually have Adobe Photoshop CS2 (and work with very large
graphics), Microsoft Outlook, AIM and a web browser or two open regularly
with my high speed internet connected. Task Manager tells me on average I
have 35-45 processes running at any given time.

My CPU usage is usually at 100%, which is NOT right. In task manager the
process that is hogging anywhere from 95-100% of my CPU is explorer.exe

EVERYTHING I do lately takes forever to load, and sometimes just locks up.
Especially when using Outlook, and when loading large files into Adobe. It's
getting really bad and I don't know what to do to speed things up. Buy and
install a better processor? Is it a virus? My drivers? Should my on-board
hard drive be larger? Memory optimizer programs don't really do the trick,
but something tells me that my memory isn't a problem and that it is my CPU
and explorer.exe

PLEASE HELP!
