CPU at 100% due to WinXPDisableZeroConfiguration.exe

  1. Hi
    Have joined to let people know about the problem with the Belkin High Speed Wireless G Card running WinXP Pro. A process called WinXPDisableZeroConfiguration.exe starts and takes up to 100% of the CPU all the time. The exe is installed as part of the driver for the Belkin card.
    To overcome this, visit:
    http://web.belkin.com/support/download/downloaddetails.asp?download=1430&lang=1
    to download and install the replacement Belkin driver.
    Note: the installation starts with a complete Belkin uninstall and power down!!
    Very strange but the subsequent install corrects the problem.
    Hope this helps a few of you.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Great info there. Thanks.

    Hopefully one of the mods will move this to the storage and networking forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Hi the main intention on the disable WZC utility is to use only the belkin utility, to connect wireless, for those of you who have WindowsXP and do not wan't to use the belkin utility, you can just go to start menu -- run ,, in the run box type msconfig go to the startup tab and uncheck the utility, next time you reboot the disable WZC application won't load then just use the windows utility in network connection (right click wireless connection --- view available wireless networks)
    :) just a tip that might be useful for some of you since the disable wzc program doesn't come only in that wireless card but in some others.

    Regards ....
