There is a file a .exe running in my Windows Task Manager , SyncServicesBasic that is causing a spike in my CPU usage ? The fie a .exe is located in my programs files/seagate/drive manager ! I have a externial hard drive a Seagate FreeAgent Desktop 320G.B. USB ,I have had this drive for a few years and also had the application for it installed for the same amount of time. I never noticed this SyncServicesBasic listed in my task manager ,however that does not mean it was'nt there ? I noticed suddenly my processor was runnig at almost 100% even when PC was sitting idle !? I opened the Windows Task Manager and seen that it was this file that was causing the spike in the CPU usage . I highlighted it n task manager and shut down the file and my CPU usage when back to normal low usage and zero usage when idle ! A google search does not return alot of info on how to stop this file from running at startup ,the program is not listed in MSCONFIG ! Any ideas on how to stop this SynServicesBasic from loadig in task manager would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance NicRic
