I have three hard drives on my PC. Windows 10 is on C: the primary. My active data is on D: and there is a back-up copy of old data on G: This data is mostly image copies jpeg, dng etc. and are not accessed by any of the programs I am using.
For some reason the G: drive is being accessed almost constantly by Cavwp.exe and this is eating into resources and slowing everything down. I have disabled HIPs - no change. Disabled antivirus - no change. Exited CIS and closed it down - no change. The only way to stop it is ending the Comodo Internet Security process through task manager.
Is there any way to stop this Cavwp.exe scanning these files unnecessarily?
Sorry Ploget, I thought I had replied to you immediately, but it doesn’t seem to have worked.
The drive that was being scanned contained back-up images, all quite large and so I have added the drive as an exclusion and that has sorted the issue. Cavwp.exe does seem rather memory intensive though.
