Process nvidia container use 30% cpu

If you’ve installed NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience software, you’ll see quite a few NVIDIA processes running in the background on your PC. We counted ten separate processes in our Windows Task Manager. But what bởi they all do?

We reached out khổng lồ NVIDIA for an explanation of these processes, but they wouldn’t provide any additional information. We suppose that’s not surprising—not even Microsoft explains all the processes in Windows itself. But we learned a lot just by poking around.

(Warning: We talk about disabling services and ending tasks to puzzle out what does what here, but we don’t actually recommend you start manually disabling services or ending tasks. We don’t know exactly what each process does.)

NVIDIA Container

You’ll see a lot of “NVIDIA Container” processes running on your PC. This program, named nvcontainer.exe cộ, appears lớn be responsible for running và containing other NVIDIA processes. In other words, NVIDIA Container isn’t doing much itself. It’s just running other NVIDIA tasks.

The SysInternals Process Explorer software, now owned by Microsoft, has a process hierarchy that shows many of these NVIDIA processes launch other NVIDIA processes.


Quite a few of these NVIDIA Container processes are associated with background tasks implemented as system services. For example, if you open the Services application, you’ll see four NVIDIA services: NVIDIA Display Container LS, NVIDIA LocalSystem Container, NVIDIA NetworkService Container, and NVIDIA Telemetry Container.

By mặc định, all these services are mix khổng lồ run automatically và always stay running in the background, except for the NVIDIA NetworkService Container. Unfortunately, NVIDIA did not give sầu these services informative sầu descriptions in the Services tiện ích.


NVIDIA Display Container LS (NVDisplay.ContainerLocalSystem) handles some display tasks. For example, if you open the NVIDIA Control Panel and cliông chồng Desktop > Show Notification Tray Inhỏ, this service is responsible for showing the inhỏ in your notification area. If you kết thúc the service, the NVIDIA notification ibé will vanish.

However, this service doesn’t seem to handle many other display tasks. Even if you disable this service, the GeForce Experience overlay still appears to lớn function normally.


It’s tough to lớn pin down everything the associated service does, và each likely performs a number of related tasks. For example, the NVIDIA LocalSystem Container (NvContainerLocalSystem) và NVIDIA NetworkService Container (NvContainerNetworkService) services are both required for using NVIDIA GameStream.

The NVIDIA Telemetry Container (NvTelemetryContainer) service does appear to lớn handle gathering data about your system và sending it khổng lồ NVIDIA. This isn’t wholesale data collection, but, according khổng lồ the NVIDIA GeForce Experience privacy policy, includes data like your GPU specifications, display details, driver settings for specific games, the các mục of games you have sầu installed as shown in GeForce Experience, the amount of RAM you have available, & information about your computer’s other hardware, including your CPU and motherboard. We don’t think this is worth panicking over, and much of this data collection is what allows GeForce Experience lớn suggest optimal graphics settings for your PC games.

NVIDIA ShadowPlay Helper

The NVIDIA ShadowPlay Helper process (nvsphelper64.exe pháo on 64-bit versions of Windows or nvsphelper.exe pháo on 32-bit versions of Windows) appears khổng lồ listen for the hotkey that opens the GeForce Experience overlay from anywhere on your operating system. It’s Alt+Z by default, but you can customize it from within the GeForce Experience application. If you over this process in the Task Manager, Alt+Z won’t open the overlay anymore.

And, if you head to Settings > General in GeForce Experience và toggle the “In-Game Overlay” off, this process will vanish.


Although NVIDIA ShadowPlay is the name of the feature that records gameplay, the ShadowPlay Helper just appears responsible for opening the overlay. When you turn on Instant Replay or otherwise start recording gameplay, another NVIDIA Container process starts using CPU, disk, and GPU resources. So at least one of the NVIDIA Container processes handles gameplay recording with NVIDIA ShadowPlay.



The NVIDIA Share processes (NVIDIA Share.exe)—và yes, there are two of them—also appear lớn be part of the GeForce Experience overlay. This makes sense, as the overlay contains sharing features for sharing video clip clips and screenshots of your gameplay on a variety of different services.

When you disable the In-trò chơi Overlay from GeForce Experience, these processes will also vanish from your system.

However, if you over both NVIDIA Share processes & then press Alt+Z, the overlay will reopen và you’ll see that the NVIDIA Share processes are now running once again. This seems to demonstrate that the ShadowPlay Helper listens for the keyboard shortcut và then hands off khổng lồ the NVIDIA Share processes, which handle the overlay.


NVIDIA Web Helper Service (NVIDIA Web Helper.exe)

The “NVIDIA Web Helper.exe” process is located in the NvNode folder. It’s a Node.js runtime, và as such it’s based on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. It runs JavaScript code for various NVIDIA background tasks. In particular, Node.js allows website developers who knows JavaScript khổng lồ use their JavaScript knowledge to write software that doesn’t just run on a website page.

If you peek in the C:Program Files (x86)NVIDIA CorporationNvNode folder (or C:Program FilesNVIDIA CorporationNvNode instead if you’re using a 32-bit version of Windows), you’ll see the script files it uses. A quichồng glance at the scripts reveals the NVIDIA Web Helper is used for automatically downloading new drivers và installing them, as well as other tasks lượt thích signing into an NVIDIA tài khoản.


If you vày want khổng lồ disable some NVIDIA processes, toggling the “In-Game Overlay” off in GeForce Experience is a guaranteed safe way khổng lồ bởi vì it. This will get rid of the NVIDIA ShadowPlay Helper process and the two NVIDIA Share processes until you turn it bachồng on. Again, we don’t generally recommend disabling services from the Services menu—using the program’s built-in options is generally a safer way to cut down on these running processes.
