And if so, how can I disable them?
It's all so Controversial he.
This all is not worth it though, the disturbance of the engines is minimal, I mean, I have Winamp using 2%-5% of thew CPU all day!
> go over "Set Priority" and click on "Low".
Uly, is there somewhere to find (or do you know) the precise difference between "Below Normal" and "Low"?
I find that when I run Houdini full-core, I have to set it to "Low" if I use Internet search at the same time.
("Below Normal" is not enough, still slows down my other tasks)

When two programs have to fight for resource, they share them. If a program is on Below Normal and the other is in Low, the Below Normal gets all the resources. It adds granularity.

Below Normal should be enough unless your other tasks are on Below Normal.
Sending your processes to below normal priority is only advised if you're not going to do anything while the computer is running, if you're going to surf the internet, then kill the applications you're not going to use and set engine and GUI to below normal.
It won't be forgotten.
You and that beast of a system :-P
This was 12 cores with HT on, for 24 Rybka processes.
Just looks weird, other programs show 1 process for the program while Rybka shows 1 process per core.
Well, it's because Vas likes programming on processes, while all other programmers prefer threads.
Vas has been told that Rybka would run faster if he rewrote it to threads (and that it was a reason a previous version of Houdini was beating it), as it was noticed that Rybka was taking too long to move when compared to Houdini (lag between Rybka and GUI). Instead of rewriting the engine he introduced TCBuffer=3 so Rybka compensates for the lag (Rybka thinks she has less time than she really does), because he doesn't believe in the slowdown.
lol, jij met je ' WTF ' haha voor mij zijn al die Technische dingen ook moeilijk, en dus ben ik er wel eens jaloers op dat hun dat allemaal weten en ik niet. Ach ja, ik heb en had, heb theoretisch nog steeds buiten Schaken om toch ook nog wel andere voordelen ( en nadelen; om dat er maar weer bij te zetten )
Netzo als jij..?
Wie zal het zeggen... Wie zal het zeggen...

Plugin-container always running with firefox? I guess it doesn't matter since you'd have FF off if you were running something heavy on the computer.
Can you click on 'show processes from all users'?
> Some of those HP ones look unnecessary.
Unless he wants to print.
>Plugin-container always running with firefox?
It's only fired when it is needed but after that it resides in memory.
>I guess it doesn't matter since you'd have FF off if you were running something heavy on the computer.
He wants to surf the internet while the engine is running, I don't think changing applications' priorities will work for him.
>It's only fired when it is needed but after that it resides in memory.
Yes but I mean only in his case.
>Unless he wants to print.
God this is so horrible it makes me sick heh.
Yes as it turns out much to my surprise that _all_ of those hp ones are running for the printer system. Luckily:
"The user can still use the all-in-one printer or digital camera; however, he or she will have to manually transfer images or rely on software to perform printer actions instead of the physical buttons."
Give me the Max, and I will see when I want the max, or lower.
You and Uly give me the Final Conclusions about what is bad and what is good.
I gave you ' Show process from all Users '.
I guess it isn't unusual actually:
I am just used to my 30 when idle in XP.
There a lot of tweak sites that can help you reduce this number, or you can google each one and see if it's necessary.
If you want to go a more user friendly route try TuneUp. I believe it has a performance tab that will look through all of this and give suggestions.
Even so most of this will just free up memory, not CPU which is what you're looking for to improve performance in chess engines. If a process seems to use plenty of CPU periodically, seriously consider turning that one off if its function is not vital.
In the screenshot it stockfish is using 95%, the rest being spent on SCID, and the windows desktop. If this is normally the case probably you are fine, it's only if some other program cuts in and takes like 8% for a bit that you might consider asking it to be off when you're doing chess analysis.
I discovered something new due to you
