Huge amount of Disk Reads with lcore.exe

I just recently installed the Logitech Gaming software for my G15.  The app says I'm on the latest version.  Weird thing is that LCore.exe (Logitch Gaming Framework) is doing a HUGE amount of disk reads.  I've got Task Manager open right now on Windows 7 and this executable dwarfs my other apps in terms of disk reads.  LCore.exe has so far read over 17GB of stuff from disk (yes, GB, as in 17,129,738,168 bytes and continuing to increase as I'm typing this).  What the heck is it doing?  No wonder my HDD light is going nuts every so often.  I have pretty much a default install of the Gaming software and I think I defined maybe 1 or 2 macros on the G1 and G2 keys and I haven't even touched those keys lately.

 

If this app is that heavy, then I'll have no choice but to get rid of it...

 

Any ideas anyone?

 

Thanks

Ray

Re: Huge amount of Disk Reads with lcore.exe

I'm also experiencing this issue; LCore.exe is slowing my hard disks right down. All I want is a way to run SirReal's G15 plugin, but it requires Logitech Gaming Software to be running, which causes disk read speed to come to a stand still. Is the profiler software constantly searching for new games or something? Is there an alternative to LGS, a more lightweight software to host G15 plugins?

Mmmm. If I find the time, I'll see about eliminating the need for the Logitech software for LCDSirReal. There is source code out there now that'll let me do that reasonably easy.

Hello

Please try uninstalling and reinstalling the legacy version of LGS

http://www.logitech.com/en-us/441/3498?section=downloads&bit=&osid=14

Reducing processing power usage of Logitech Gaming Software:

 

  • Logitech Gaming Software uses processing power to render its window
  •  To reduce the system impacts, users should close the Logitech Gaming Software window by clicking on the X in

            the upper right when they are done making edits to the keyboard configuration.

 

  •  Minimizing the window will continue to allow the Logitech Gaming Software to render its window. Users will  have        to close the LGS window to maximize performance
  • The Logitech Gaming Software will continue to run if the user closes the window

Said and done. LCDSirReal 2.8.4 no longer requires the Logitech software to run.

If you run something like Process Explorer from Microsoft you can see that the IO isn't actually the hard disk but something else.  I think it must be communication with the screen.
