VongoService.exe process
VongoService.exe is a program associated with Starz Entertainment. It seems to come bundled with new HP computers and provides 30 days free, then you have to pay for it. I chose to delete it as it is an unnecessary, has a service which uses up memory unnecessarily and has it's own try configuration which uses additional memory.
I know that it is a nuissence on my computer at this moment in time and would like it to be uninstalled.

Best practices for resolving VongoService issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with VongoService. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
