I use software called blueiris and you can run the software as a windows service so you don't even have to have it open for it to work so it runs in the background doing so requires your admin logon user/pass. Any time i enable this feature is brings my PC to a stuttering halt, click on chrome it will opens a few mins later, bring up task manger takes a few min. Disable the windows service and all works fine again. CPU usage is only 20% GPU at 15% it uses intel quick sync.

Fresh clean install of Win 11 pro all NVMEs formatted.

I tried this same setup on a different pc with a fresh win 11 pro install used all the same settings and ran the software as a windows service and it worked fine! no slow downs at all.

Does that make any sense? only difference being hardware between the two. Both PC's are intel with no dedicated GPU only using the Intel UHD.

No, but since the issue appears to be application-specific then I would suggest opening a support ticket with them:

You may view the most recent updates for Blue Iris here. You can also configure Blue Iris to automatically check for updates so you’ll always be up-to-date. If you discover a bug or have a question about the software you may email support@blueirissoftware.com.

For quickest support, please first use the Email support button on the Help page in the software, then paste this information into your message.

I doubt you're going to get much help on this forum unless another member is well versed with that software.

I figured that but is there a way I can check and see if the software is being logged in to my admin account? Or being denied access.

Make sure the service is set to automatic, instead of automatic delayed start.

Restart and see what happens.

If the issue is still there, under services, choose the service and go to the log on tab. Use the this account feature and put in your credentials of the admin account.

See what happens.

Then, Try disabling UAC, restart, and see if the issue goes away.

Then enable it to its highest setting, restart and try again.

If UAC off fixes it, set the program under compatibility mode under properties to run as administrator.

I do not recommend leaving UAC off, it is critical that this should be on.

I woud check if the software uses software dependency's like,
Framework.net
Microsoft Windows Desktop Runtime
Microsoft.net SDK
Microsoft Visual C++ redistributiable.

Check on the system where it is working and what version you have.
Then check system that has issues, if it is running the same versions.
Also having for example 4 versions of each version installed, can cause slowdowns. So try to keep the latest versions of all, and removing the older onces.
