SBAMSvc.exe problem
WinXP, SP3. I am having a problem with the program SBAMSvc.exe hogging my
CPU time. Periodically everything slows down to a crawl and if I open the
Task Manager I find this program taking anywhere from 10% to 90% of the CPU
time. Does anybody know what this program is and if I can delete it? I
Googled it and apparently there are a lot of others with the same question,
but did not find any answers.

Thanks.

Do you have Sunbelt Software's Vipre or any other of their products
installed and running?

Re: SBAMSvc.exe problem
As far as I know I do not have Vipre. I don't even know what that program
is. I have Avanquest SystemSuite and that is all. This problem did seem to
start after I upgraded SystemSuite to Ver. 9. I cannot get any response from
Avanquest on this or other problems with their program. Is Vipre maybe
something of theirs?

Thanks

Here's what Bill P Stucios has to say about it:

So it either is, or was, installed from the look of it. "Safe" means
not known to be part of a malware load and the cpu max out is mentioend
too:
------------------
Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware - SBAMSVC.EXE

Sbamsvc.exe installs with Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware from Sunbelt
Software. Vipre is described by the author as follows: "Vipre combines
antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit, anti-malware and other security
technologies into a seamless, tightly-integrated security solution." It
is intended as a replacement for CounterSpy AntiSpyware. You'll find
more information at
http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com/Home-Home-Office/VIPRE/.

If you use this program, you'll want to leave this file in place.
Sbamsvc.exe is the main scanning engine. Some users have complained that
this file uses up to 100% of their CPU resources. Sunbelt recommends
upgrading to the latest available version.


a.. Safe

Sunbelt Software
-----------------

HTH,

Twayne

Re: SBAMSvc.exe problem
I do not knowingly have the AV app "CounterSpy" and neither Vipre or that
program shows up in the Add/Remove programs list.

1) Do a search for, and then reply to this thread with the precise and
complete pathname to SBAMSvc.exe

2) Please upload the SBAMSvc.exe file to:

<http://www.virustotal.com/>

3) When Virus Total has rendered an analysis, please copy/paste the
report to this thread.

4) Was your system pre-built and purchased with Windows and other software?

5) Would a prior owner/user/computer tech have installed any after
market applications for you?

Thank you for the suggestion/request. I have myself in quite a pickle at the
moment. Since the program was a part of the Vipre AV system, I thought that
if I loaded the Vipre program and then uninstalled it, it would solve the
problem. However, all that did was make things worse. The uninstall did not
work (it hung up about 3/4 the way through) so I tried a re-install and that
doesn't work because it is apparently looking for some files that it had
already removed. So, when I boot up it starts the install program and then
hangs because it can't find some files, I guess. Anyhow, while trying to do
anything else with the computer I keep getting interrupted with these Window
Installer windows (Preparing to Install) that pop up and I have to cancel
out. Each time that happens the installer windows pop up 3 or 4 times then
rests for a while, then come back, etc. Is there anyway to find out what is
being loaded at bootup that I can cancel out this mess?

Thanks.

Sorry, I forgot to complete the answer to your questions. I purchased this
computer new with WinXP Home installed.
