cmdagent.exe not listed
« on: January 29, 2020, 02:40:56 PM »
This process is from Comodo Antivirus. Task Manager reports it as one of the most CPU demanding, and on my old PC it very frequently was taking a full core from my 4C i5 and making it slow.

Now on my new PC I'm setting CPU affinity for most demanding processes, but this one isn't listed by Process Lasso. Might it be because it's an antivirus and is hiding itself?

Hi Hikari

Yes, that is the reason many AV exe's will not show in list cause any checking or altering them can cause issues.
We are always looking at this and maybe some changes but overall AV don't like any "checking" on there engine.

You should try updating to the latest beta version and/or uncheck 'Options / General settings / Ignore problematic processes'.

That process may then be listed, if sufficient access can be obtained. If access can't be obtained, it won't be listed.
