[CLOSED] PSANHost.exe is a CPU hog!

Post by pokemonfan13 » Mon, 25 Jul 2016, 08:34

I looked for other topics on this, but none held helpful information and all were old.

PSANHost.exe is consistently using around 40-50% of my CPU (and is currently at 12,756K, since memory hogging was mentioned in another thread). This absolute hogging of my CPU is putting it mostly at or above 80% and quite often snagging on that 100% mark. This means my computer is acting like a total slug.

Something funny. It SAYS that the last scan was 4/12/16, which is just plain untrue since I started a scan myself not long ago, and there's a weekly scan set up.

I have windows 7. It is a personal computer.

Edit: I restarted my computer, and PSANHost.exe is now using 0 CPU, but I wouldn't have NEEDED to restart to begin with if it hadn't been hogging so much! This is still a very real problem.
