I have had a certain problem in the last months, I have solved it or I have tolerated it, but I cannot bear it. (I think it has worsened, but it is probably only a bias on my part).
The question is: the composition of the desktop for me is incredibly slow: every time I try to open a browser window, or the Save As dialog box to save an image of my browser or anything else, the window takes an absurdly long time. in opening. paint – as in the order of 2-4 seconds. Meanwhile, everything else in the system is virtually frozen.
The problem gets worse over time.
It's almost fine on a new boot, that is, the windows start and respond quickly enough to be usable, but I can still see pop-up user interface elements one by one, p. Address bar, ribbon, sidebar.
After a while it becomes unbearable: it is a slow decline in performance, in a few hours it is annoying, after a day or so without a restart it is almost unusable.
I tracked WPR with the composition of CPU, GPU, disk, network and desktop.
(If the link does not work for any reason, comment and I will find another way to include it).
My machine is Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming 6, i9-9900K, 64 GB DDR4 3000MHz, GTX 1070, 165Hz GSync monitor in DP + 60Hz monitor in DVI.
I also have a Corsair K70 keyboard. It comes with a program called iCue, which controls its rays and other functions. Normally explorer.exe is the most heinous criminal. If I start, that browser is virtually unusable, with a response / paint time of the order of 10 seconds. And it begins to affect other windows. Another user in the Corsair forums reported similar problems with the same motherboard family: it makes me think that somehow the fault is from IT. (the trace does not run because I do not allow it, because I would like to use the computer)
But wait, it gets weirder: I wanted to compress the trail, so I could share it over the Internet, and during the compression period, when the compression program hit my CPU and memory, things went back into disrepair, Like after a restart. As soon as the closure is finished, we return to the painfully slow window drawing.
(This gives me an idea: download BOINC and stress my CPU so that the system keeps responding. Ok. I tried that, as long as I keep my CPU somewhere above 30% or so, like 4-5 cores, keep responding ).
