Are the Services and Controller applications consuming too much CPU power on your system? If you are experiencing this problem, you will notice that the Services and Controller application is consuming almost half of the processing power. The Services and Controller application is a redundant application that can cause this type of error on your computer. Just follow these simple fixes on your computer to resolve the problem immediately.
If you’re developing a program or using VMware, you never want your computer to have a slow response time. But if your CPU consumption is high, you may have a hard time finding the problem. This is because this problem can be caused by a lot of background processes running the Windows operating system.
Many Windows 10 users have complained about Service and Controller App High CPU Usage error. This problem can only be detected using the Task Manager utility. But there are workarounds you need to implement to get rid of it.
This problem is not very common, but when it occurs, it prevents you from using your computer effectively. That’s why we’ve created this step-by-step guide that will show you exactly what you need to do to solve this problem.
What causes controller services and applications to consume a lot of CPU?
Sometimes a slide show on your screen can cause this problem. In that case, you can disable the slideshow in the background and see if that helps.
Some processes have been known to cause this problem:
- Nahimic service: uninstall the software and the driver that installs this service. You may also need to look at the corresponding audio drivers.
- Sequrazo: Check whether a program called Sequrazo is running or installed. Segurazo (SAntivirus Realtime Protection Lite) is a PUP or PUA and this might be the cause of the problem. Uninstall it and check it.
- LenovoVantageService: uninstall Lenovo Vantage Service or update it to the latest version and see if that helps.

Another reason for the high CPU load in the Services and Controller application is that the background settings are set to Slideshow > 1 min. Combined with the "Colors" setting, which automatically selects the selection color from the background, this can cause a delay. This can cause lag in Windows 10 and in games.
