It is an Intel chip feature!  It does have vulnerability issue, Intel has released some fixes   Are you finding its usage in resource monitor.  I think something else is interacting with it.  Have you run your security software, possible there may be something found there.  I would run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware see if they turn up anything.

 

Below is taken from the Intel site!  Looks like it is fijne to rid your self of it!

 

Please look in services and find.  Stop the service and set it to "disabled" Intel Management and Security Application Local Management Service.  Open an Admin command prompt and type the following:

 

SC delete LMS

 

This should remove from your system.


Honesty & Integrity Above All!

First of all, I'd recommend getting rid of IObit Advanced SystemCare and all other IObit craps, they are just garbage that can even damage system.

There have been several reports that IObit's "repairs" caused only another problems. You can read something here for example.

You can use Windows' Task Manager to disable startup programs.

Well, CCleaner can do that as well, but I think there is no difference between disabling a program through CCleaner or Task Manager (or even some other software). AFAIK all of these just do the same, they hide the appropriate entry from registry and Windows will not automatically start that program after turning on PC. It does not prevent from starting that program manually.

AVG and IObit are your two smoking guns that are slowing down your computer to a crawl.

 

If I were you, I would download and install a free copy of Revo Uninstaller and remove both products with the advanced settings in Revo

https://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

 

Reboot your computer and see how much better it runs!!


In the beginning there was the command line.

Try use Windows + R and appwiz.cpl to manually remove programs or locate the root folder and delete it completely. 

 

Or services.msc and disable the services
