audiodg.exe - performance alert -high cpu alert
Upgraded my pc from vista to Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I noticed that Whenever playing mahjong .exe game I am getting the following alert from Norton 360 v5 :
7/1/2011 7:30 AM,Info,High CPU usage by: Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation(program Description)
Program path: c:\windows\system32\audiodg.exe, cpu atleast 99%
Checked Taksmanager and memory usage was more that 85%.
Through research on internet I Scanned my drivers with DriverFinder(Driver update software for win 7)
DriverFinder scanned and informed that drivers were uptodate. No Action required
Never had this problem With Vista.
As of today I got 23 alerts - all whenever playing the game. Should I stop playing games? Help!!!

This is just a notification from Norton to let you know that the particular file- audiog.exe is consuming more CPU usage when you play the game. This does not mean that the file is infected. Try these steps:
1. Right-click the speaker icon in the system tray, and select Playback Devices from the menu.
2. Double-click the device with a green checkmark.
3. In the Properties window, click the Enhancements tab.
4. Click the Disable all enhancements.
5. Click OK > OK.
Play the game, and check if you are still getting the high cpu alert.

Or you can even add the program mahjong .exe to the Program Exclusion List to prevent such CPU alerts (Settings>>Administrative Settings>>Performance Monitoring>>Program Exclusions>>Configure)
