  6. audiodg.exe file hosts the audio engine for Vista, and from what I hear Windows 7 as well. All the DSP and audio processing is performed within this file. Vendors are able to install their own DSP and audio effects into the audio pipeline, which will then be processed by audiodg.exe. Disabling Audio Effects In order to fix the high CPU usage, I disabled the audio enhancements processed by the audiodg.exe file. To disable the audio enhancements, use the following steps: Right-click the speaker icon in the lower right corner. Select Playback Devices from the menu. A list of devices should appear on the screen. Double-click the device that has a green checkmark. The properties windows for that device should open. Click the Enhancements tab at the top.
