Disable Welcome Screen Options for the Product

various products or programs like 3ds Max have the option of a Welcome screen which starts when you start the computer it means at startup. So, it consumes high CPU usage on the computer. Most importantly this option is closely attached to the chromium host executable so disable it to fix this issue.

  1. First of all launch the particular program which has Welcome screen options. Here we will take the example of 3ds Max.
  2. Once you open the program then tap on the Help option.
  3. Then navigate to Welcome Screen for the further process.

So, doing so will disable the Welcome Screen option of a 3ds Max. Likewise, you can also try for other programs that have the Welcome Screen option.

As I have told you that Chromium host executable enhances the performance of the Autodesk product so due to its high CPU usage issue arises most of the time so all you have to do to fix this is to disable Autodesk desktop application service.

Include Chromium Host Executable to Antivirus 

This fix or we can say the solution is simple and short in this all you need to do is just add the Chromium host executable to antivirus because if it is not added then it is blocked by the antivirus so it leads to high CPU usage on the computer. Once you add this service then you will not face this issue again. To do so just launch the antivirus you used and add AcWebBrowser.exe in the Antimalware Service Executable processes.
