Question about Process Hacker

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I'm not familiar with the tool myself, however it does appear to be legitimate as far as I can tell.  Apparently it is an open-source advanced malware removal tool.  I would advise caution before attempting to use such a tool on your own system without the supervision of a trained malware removal specialist.  In fact, if you suspect that you system is infected then I would strongly advise you to read and follow the instructions in this topic, skipping any steps you are unable to complete, then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you in checking your system for any threats and removing them.

Hello Exile360,

Thanks for the fast reply to my post, I really appreciate it.

I asked as I need to always have a game start set to high priority when it is run.
Alt Tab does not work as it screws up when I go back into game.

I was told Process Hacker 2 would do the job but wont install until i know its safe.

Thanks again for the help.

You really shouldn't need to change the default process priority of your games.  If running them normally isn't working then there is likely some issue or application interfering with them.

Hello Exile360,

Problem is I cant find the program if any causing the issue.

The game even when i do a selective startup using msconfig gets massive lag.

Yet when i change the game set to high priority the game runs fine in normal and selective startup.

It bugs me as all my other games and I have lots of online games run fine!
it is only the one game causing me issues.

I tried port forwarding but then it screws up my housemates games.
We all have gaming rigs, thou they dont play same game causing me issues.
But if we all play wow, eq2, Aion,  Elder Scrolls and others all at same time all set to max graphics none of us get lag ever.

But when I play the one game I get lag bad while other playing other games get none.

 

Thanks
Gren

It sounds like perhaps there is an issue with your CPU's performance when playing that particular game.  I would suggest posting in our malware removal area as I suggested above to let one of our malware removal specialists take a look at the system to see if they can find any issues on the system that might cause your game to run poorly.  Hopefully they can get the issue corrected for you.

Hey,

I had system checked not to long ago and I monitor it quite well now.

I read online that others have same or similar issue with the game "Fallout 76".
I have modified GPU settings for it with little change.

As for system I have run multiple benchmark tools like 3dMark and all pass great.
I keep asking Bethesda for their server ip so I can ping them but the will not give server info.
So i pinged and traceroute their main website and I see a lot of time outs and high numbers.
 

In Canada get good numbers but within 1 or 2 hops into USA numbers crash or time out.
300+ ms or time out for many of the hops.

Anyways thanks for the help and the suggestion.
Have a great day
Gren

I guess it's just a bug with that particular game then.  I have heard that Fallout 76 has a lot of problems so it doesn't really surprise me, though it is unfortunate that you have to go to such lengths just to get the game to work properly.
