Greetings:

I made some recent upgrades to my hardware. Ever since, while pCars is open I get an FPS counter at the top of the screen. How do I get rid of it? Steam settings indicate FPS counter is "off". My Nvidia control panel doesn't seem to have that as an option. It's interfering w/ my teamspeak pop-ups. Any advice?

Total shot in the dark.. but as it's yellow... are you running Fraps ?

That FPS counter is not from pCARS. It's from some other application you are running (whether it's FRAPS, MSI Afterburner or some other similar software).

Steam?

Hey DMack

As others have posted, this likely is coming from an external app that you have installed. You can try closing a bunch from Windows Task Manager to see when it disappears, or you could post a list of running processes here and we can probably take a stab at which one the culprit it. Once we know which app is causing it, it'll no doubt have a settings screen where you can disable the feature.


Quick way to get a list of running processes:
1. Run the game and make sure the FPS counter appears. Close the game
2. Click Start, type cmd and press Enter. A black command prompt window appears.
3. Type the following command then press Enter: tasklist > %userprofile%\documents\tasklist.txt
4. Nothing will appear to happen, but if you open your Documents folder, you should find a new file called tasklist.txt. Open this, Ctrl+A to select all text, then copy and paste it here.

"The system cannot find the path specified"

the black command prompt begins with "C:\Users\DMack>"

My documents folder is on my X: drive, the location in "documents properties" has always been assigned to the X: drive.

I searched the system with Cortana (Windows version of Siri) for "tasklist" and a positive result came back, I clicked it and there was a quick flash of a screen that quickly disappeared before I could see it.

Open explorer
In the navigation pane at the left side, find "This PC", click on it. In the right pane, whilst holding down the Shift key, right click on Documents and then select "Open command window here"
That should get you a command window in your Docs folder..

In the command window
tasklist > tasklist.txt

Open in notepad and copy paste as per previous...

Also, if you see any other apps I should be closing for performance improvement please let me know, thanks.

Overwolf apparently includes an FPS monitor

Enough ASUS crapware to fill a skip.... (how much of that does something useful?)

Thanks, found the option. As far as ASUS, I don't know, it seems to have come preinstalled with my hardware upgrades. I used the ASUS software to do an auto-tune for my overclock. Running 5.05 Ghz on i7-7700k.

Fair enough if it's actually being used.. a lot of people throw In the motherboard CD, install everything, and never use any of it...
