    Ive had windows 8 for a few days now and after about a day my laptop was running slow, so i checked task manager and i found a process called Device Association Framework Provider Host running and it is using 90+% of my CPU and is making the laptop run really slow. Is there any way of fixing this.

    Hi,

    How did you install Windows 8? This commonly occurs when there are outdated (i.e. non Windows 8) drivers running

    it came with the laptop, i also checked device manager and it didnt show any exclamation marks so i assume that all the drivers are up to date

    The most likely cause is the network drive download the latest network drivers from the makers site also check in device manager for any device with yellow triangle
