Close to a couple of hours ago, I happened to notice that cmdagent.exe was running at 12-16% of cpu, per System Explorer. Checking back occasionally, it remained in that range. There had been a couple of updates and reboots in there, but this didn’t seem right. In searching around, I discovered cache cleaner was running, 14 minutes at the time I looked. I closed it and the cmdagent.exe cpu usage dropped to 0. So, the question is why would this be running on and on - or at all? I didn’t even know Comodo had a cache cleaner (I use CCleaner). Win 8.1 x64, CIS free 126.96.36.19926, database 21494. Thanks,
Update: To avoid getting waylaid, there’s another thread on this subject where the symptoms were more severe and the culprit was mscorsvw.exe (.NET Runtime Optimization). That’s not the problem here; i.e., mscorsvw.exe is not running now and presumably wasn’t last night either, since it runs during Windows Updates and installs that include .NET Runtime Optimization, which isn’t often. However, a good 30 minutes into startup this morning cmdagent.exe is running 12-16% as reported and cache cleaner has been running almost the whole time.
