I have 10 INTEL processes running in the background.  That seems a bit overkill.  Which one can i remove or disable?

 

Thanks!Screenshot (17).png

Hello Ladge,  


  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I am sorry to know that you are having issues with the background processes.


  

In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  


1. What is the brand model name of your processor?

2. Have you experienced any performance issues related to these background processes?



Best regards,

Hi Deivid,

Thank you for response.

My processor is: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10750H CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s)

As for performance issues, the fan on this laptop keeps running and loudly.   It started 2 weeks ago and then i noticed all those Intel processes that i don't recall seeing all of those prior to that.

 

Regards,

 

Ladge

Hello Ladge, 



Thanks for your patience. In this case, Intel cannot recommend which tasks to close/remove since some of the tasks running in the background could be needed for the computer to run smoothly.


However, based on the image shared these Intel processes are almost 0% the issue with your fan may be related to dust stock in your vents. I recommend you check with the laptop manufacturer to get instructions on how to clean your system.
