cmd.exe, resource hog

By gottastopthis

  1. Hi, I've just reinstalled windows because I had "cmd.exe" pop up in my taskmgr every time I started some program (bitcomet, media player, paint.net) and it used 80 percent of my resources grinding down my computer speed.

    Reinstalling didn't solve anything, now I get even more "cmd.exe's" in taskmgr and the only way to close them is if I click on them and "End Task".

    Can any of you help me with this? How to disable it or auto turn it off whenever it runs?
    It is really annoying, my pc isn't great so, every resource hog makes it even worse.

    Thanks a lot.
