    High CPU usage with TS3.


    A few days ago i experienced that the service SYSTEM was using 25% cpu usage slowing my pc down and making games lag alot.

    Now i have seen other explain this issue on different OS and others try to disable firewalls etc. with no effect.

    I am lost in trying to fnd an answer to this problem.
    So let me know what you need from in order to getting this fixed.

    Does this also occour, when the TS Overlay is disbaled?
    25% CPU usage does not sound that much , when a game is running. HMmmm

    Do you have one of the "Echo Canceling features" enabled?

    "Settings > Options > Capture > 'Echo reduction' and or 'Echo cancellation'

    If this is the case, please disable both and give it a retry

    The other question is, you said:
    "the service SYSTEM was using 25% cpu"..

    What about the "ts3client_win32.exe" process cpu usage if this happen?
    I mean, is it truly the ts3 process who takes the cpu usage ?

    But also try to disable the Overlay Plugin, like dante696 said already

    Hi guys.

    The overlay along with all sound effect was disabled. and in idle mode with no talk, but just connected to ts3 server i had 25% cpu - 50% when talking.
    im sure you would agree it should be less than 5% even on a slow machine.

    Now yesterday night i fiddled around in services and running processes to see if some windows services was the badguy here.
    It was... i found audiodg.exe to use all the cpu time and now the problem was up to 80-100% making go aaaarrggh.

    After another 2 hours of reading abot audiodg.exe i wasnt smarter at all. Still had the problem.

    Then i looked at running processes task man. and found pnkbstra.exe. wondering what that was doing here with no game running i didnt net punkbuster. So i closed it... then i had a running ts3 with cpu usage idle 0% and 10% when talking.

    So remove this punkbuster file or update it if needed.
