oasrv.exe recently started taking up nearly all CPU power

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After having used OA for several years without problems, it is now crippling my computer. Oasrv.exe is consuming nearly all available CPU power. It never used to do this - not sure exactly when it started, perhaps several weeks ago. Recently installed a new wireless Belkin USB + software: may be related. Tried turning off the Belkin software but no difference. Tried disabling pretty much every service I could, but no difference there either.

I am running ++ 4.5.1.431 paid version on windows XP home.

Would appreciate any advice to get this rectified - this is my main work computer when I work from home. What do I need to post to help diagnose the problem?

Kind Regards,

RJ

Do you see anything in the Program's list that might be related to Belkin that hasn't been trusted? Does the problem occur as soon as you boot the computer or does it happen randomly at a later time or during a particular activity? Are you running any other security software?

Hi catprincess, thanks for your reply.

I couldn't see anything else going on - eventually I tried uninstalling the belkin software entirely but it made no difference. So as a last resort I uninstalled Online Armor and reinstalled it again, and that seems to have fixed the problem - oasrv.exe is now averaging around 5-10% CPU power. Hopefully things will stay that way! Maybe should have tried that before I posted, but thanks for your help anyway.

Kind Regards,

RJ

I have had a similar problem. I run for days without rebooting, and occasionally oasvr.exe %cpu gos abnormally to about 20%.

My temporary workaround is to shutdown oa and restart it right away... cpu usage goes back to normal.

As someone suggested in your other thread, I would make sure that you have added AVG to OA's exclusions list and also add OA to AVG's exclusions list, if you haven't done so already :)
