hpdskflt.sys high CPU and resource consumption

What to do if hpdskflt.sys eats alot of procesor time and memory on your Windows (XP, 7, 8 or Windows 10)

A lot of Windows processes, including hpdskflt.sys, can from time to time consume a bunch of computer resources.
Sometimes, this behaviour is normal. Programs like video editors or IDEs are notorious for it's greediness. However, if formerly lightweight program starts to consume CPU time and/or memory like crazy, it can indicate some deeper troubles. Before you'll visit trained computer professional, consider steps below:

  1. Restart hpdskflt.sys. Programs sometimes get into the trouble, and restart is a rule of thumb.
  2. Restart Windows. This is more violent version of previous step.
  3. High CPU consumption can be related to problems in Windows registry. Fix it with this specialized tool: IT Sponge
  4. Dive into program settings: switch off every fancy feature (especially graphic cuties are hungry), it often helps.
  5. Extend your computer's memory. Well, this is a step of despair, but some programs simply cannot run on ancient computer with 512 MB of RAM

Still no luck?

Sometimes, high CPU consumption can indicate malware or trojan attack, or even operating system malfunction. Scan your computer with antivirus, run a Windows repair utility and do not forget to run checkdisk. If the problem emerged after some suspicious software installation, use system restore point ad revert your computer to previous state.
