I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 64-bit and noticed that afterward things were not exactly as I wanted them. This may have been an issue before the upgrade but I noticed that CIS (cmdagent.exe) was keeping my processor up at 20% usage (i7 4770K) at idle. I only noticed as I could hear a little more fan noise than usual. I did a little digging with procmon and found that CIS was constantly hitting a file named sdclt.exe. I looked this process up and found that it is some Vista Backup Tool.
Being the adventurous sort, I decided to stop sdlclt.exe from even loading by renaming it and its companion (safe mode). Since then My machine idles at 1-2% CPU, is as quiet as a church mouse and CIS is behaving just as I expect.
Any ideas of what Comodo’s problem is with this file?
