Some users have experienced high CPU usage by the Killer Control Center, often with the inability to update or effectively uninstall the Killer Control Center. This issue usually happens due to older versions of the software running on the latest version of Windows 10.
First, if your machine is running very slowly due to the high CPU usage, you will want to disable the service. To do this:
- Click Start
- Type services.msc and press Enter
- Scroll until you find “Killer Network Service” or “Rivet Bandwidth Control.” Once you see it, double click it.
- Click Stop. It may take a few moments for the service to stop.
- Click OK and close the Services window.
Once you have stopped the service, your computer should be more responsive, allowing you to clean install the latest Killer Control Center.
