sp_data.sys keeps coming back in my Roaming folder

Recommended Posts

So I recently came across this file, named "sp_data.sys" in my Appdata/Roaming folder. I scanned my entire PC with Avast and Malwarebytes, neither of them found anything. I also uploaded the file to VirusTotal, nothing found.

I decided to delete the file. However, after restarting my PC, it just creates the same file again. I also noted that the file updates itself whenever I restart my PC, whether I deleted it or not.

Why is this file so persistent, and what is it doing on my computer? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hello Groompro and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Why do you believe sp_data.sys is suspicious, what is make and model of your PC...?

Thank you,

Kevin..

Hi Kevin.

I believe it's kinda suspicious the file updates everytime I restart my PC. Like it's logging my pc usage.

The model is an ASUS Vivobook from 2017. It has an Intel i5 7200U, 8 GB ram and Intel HD Graphics 620.

"sp_data.sys"  belongs to the manf. of your Laptop, it is one of ASUS own drivers and perfectly harmless. If you delete that file it will return on reboot.....

I`d advise that you leave it installed. If you want further confirmation maybe go to ASUS website and check there.. https://www.asus.com/us/support/

Regards,

Kevin
