SCComm.exe high cpu usage

Recommended Posts

Recently we've been getting frequent calls in our organization regarding abnormally slow pc's -- at least a couple per week I'd say. In all of the these cases, the SCComm.exe process is the culprit where it's pegging the cpu at 100% for long periods. Uninstalling all MBAM products and re-installing from the managed agent seems to resolves the issue.

What does this process actually do that it would peg the cpu? What can I do to try and diagnose this behavior?

Hi @AdamM, sccomm.exe is the process for the MEEClientService, it runs the client's communication to the server. We will need to look into what is possibly interfering with it, it is not typical at all for it to swamp resources.

Frst Log
Please follow the steps below to run frst.

1.) Please download frst and frst64 from the link below and save it to your desktop:

FRST 32-bit version: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/FRST
FRST 64-bit version: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/FRST64

Note: You need to download the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your computer; that will be the right version. Some traditional Anti-Viruses may false positive the download or running frst, I can assure you it is safe. If this happens, please temporarily disable the AV.

2.) Double-click the purple frst or frst64 icon to run the program. Click Yes when the disclaimer appears.
3.) Click the Scan button
4.) When the scan has finished, it will make 2 log files in the same directory the tool is located, frst.txt and Addition.txt.

Please attach frst.txt and Addition.txt in your reply.
