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

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Hi Broni and thanks for the reply and info on the autoruns app ! I actually uninstalled the program Seagate Drive Manager and then backed up to the drive using WindowXP's backup utility ! I have the CD from Seagate that came with the purchase of the Seagate Freeagent USB Hard Drive . I had seen in one hit on google info about te autoruns program a microsoft application ! If I decide to reinstall the seagate app and the SyncServicesBasic starts causing high CPU usage again I will definitly use the autoruns program . In fact Iam thinking of running it anyway !
Thank You Very Much
Nick
