So this has been going on for a while. I will suddenly get 1 or more CompatTelRunner.exe. I am aware of this question and its answers.

Why would it be using so much of the CPU and RAM (last time it happened it used 4gb of RAM and 80% CPU)? And why would I get more than one of these processes(8 last time)?

  • the tool scans the PC for all installed software. Ask Microsoft why they use so much CPU. disable the task to stop it Jan 5 '17 at 15:30
