Services and Controller app fix Segurazo high CPU usage

Since a few weeks ago, I experienced high CPU usage in the Services and Controller app. In Task Manager, I noticed Segurazo as an unknown service. And the CPU usage of Services and Controller app regularly peaked at more than 60%. Especially with YouTube and gaming.

Fix for high CPU Services and Controller app

The solution was to remove the Segurazo app. Segurazo is a questionable antivirus software. Removing Sequrazo will fix your issue. 99% certain of that. Read below how to remove the Segurazo software.
In case you have not installed Segurazo, try to restart the Windows Management Instrumentation. However, this seems to be a one-time temporarily fix only.
Another cause for the Services and Controller app high CPU usage might be background settings set to slideshow. Below I describe both solutions step by step.

Uninstall Segurazo software

You can only uninstall the Segurazo software from Windows Safe Mode. Once you are in Safe Mode, it’s best to let MalwareBytes uninstall Segurazo. Follow these steps:

  1. Download Malwarebytes from
  2. Install Malwarebytes.
  3. Click Start (Windows logo), type Recovery and select Recovery Options.
  4. Select Advanced Startup -> select Restart Now.
  5. Windows now restarts to the Advanced Startup.
  6. At the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.
  7. Your pc restarts. Hit F5 or select 5 to boot to Safe mode with Networking.
  8. In the Windows Safe Mode, start Malwarebytes and select Start Now.
    Malwarebytes probably needs an update. After updating, the Threat Scan will run automatically. Once the scan is completed, reboot your pc.

Restart Windows Management Instrumentation

Sometimes a software application may send invalid instructions which causes unnecessary CPU requests. In case you experience high CPU usage of the Services and Controller app service, you may try to restart the WMI service. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Services.
  2. Scroll down to Windows Management Instrumentation.
  3. Right-click and select Restart.
    restart windows management instrumentation

Long delay with slideshow background

Another cause for the Services and Controller app high CPU usage is when background settings are set to Slideshow -> 1 min.
In combination with Colors setting Automatically pick an accent color from my background, this may cause a delay. You may experience lag in Windows 10 and lagging in gaming.
To improve performance, turn off Slideshow. You’d best choose 1 background picture or a solid color.
Follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, type background and select Background image settings.
    choose background settings
  2. Check whether your Background setting is set to Slideshow.
    If so, change it to Picture or Solid Color.
    set background slideshow 1 minute

Thank you very much. Your tutorial helped me to get rid of that unwanted AV program that eats a lot of CPU usage. I followed option one and it saves my day!


thank you one million! uninstalling the Segurazo software got my cpu from 80-90% to 3%! im forever in your dept.


Since I installed Windows 1903 updates, suddenly my laptop started heating up and the CPU fan started making noise. CPU uses went up to 95 to 90 percent and system was drastically slow. I tried stopping some services, it was of help for a minute or two. Finally, i uninstalled Segurazo and the problem was solved. Appears that Segurazo negatively exerts lot of stress on the CPU and battery. Thanks for the suggestions
