ThinkVantage Access Connections (AcSvc.exe) HEAVY memory usage...

2008-05-15, 5:02 AM
So recently I've noticed my X61t lagging a bit when running "normal" programs like Firefox.  Well my task manager reveals that the AcSvc.exe service is using ~1,600,000K of memory while the next highest memory usage is only ~ 70,000K by dwm.exe.  This is abnormal to say the least.  Any idea how to fix it short of uninstalling Access Connections and not using it at all?  I've already tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

Thanks,
Jeff

I have the same exact problem with the new version 4.52. Not only the heavy memory usage, but AC is basically not usable and I have to kill the associated processes using task manager to gain control of my computer again. I've googled this but have found no solution. Anyone?

whoa that is lot of memory this machine is using, my process usually don't take up more than 60 mb of ram normally. Could it be a virus or something, this sounds way out of the norm.

There is known occurance of viruses or bots that runs under this process, my X31 have been suffering from this for a while, until i tracked it down last week and did a total reformat using rescue and recovery.

here is an article on this process and the possible virus or whatever that is associated with it.
