Default SBAMSvc.exe problem

WinXP, SP3. I am having a problem with the program SBAMSvc.exe hogging my
CPU time. Periodically everything slows down to a crawl and if I open the
Task Manager I find this program taking anywhere from 10% to 90% of the CPU
time. Does anybody know what this program is and if I can delete it? I
Googled it and apparently there are a lot of others with the same question,
but did not find any answers.

Thanks.

Do you have Sunbelt Software's Vipre or any other of their products
installed and running?

As far as I know I do not have Vipre. I don't even know what that program
is. I have Avanquest SystemSuite and that is all. This problem did seem to
start after I upgraded SystemSuite to Ver. 9. I cannot get any response from
Avanquest on this or other problems with their program. Is Vipre maybe
something of theirs?

Thanks

Here's what Bill P Stucios has to say about it:

So it either is, or was, installed from the look of it. "Safe" means
not known to be part of a malware load and the cpu max out is mentioend
too:
------------------
Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware - SBAMSVC.EXE

Sbamsvc.exe installs with Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware from Sunbelt
Software. Vipre is described by the author as follows: "Vipre combines
antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit, anti-malware and other security
technologies into a seamless, tightly-integrated security solution." It
is intended as a replacement for CounterSpy AntiSpyware. You'll find
more information at
http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com/Home-Home-Office/VIPRE/.

If you use this program, you'll want to leave this file in place.
Sbamsvc.exe is the main scanning engine. Some users have complained that
this file uses up to 100% of their CPU resources. Sunbelt recommends
upgrading to the latest available version.


a.. Safe

Sunbelt Software
-----------------

HTH,

Twayne

I do not knowingly have the AV app "CounterSpy" and neither Vipre or that
program shows up in the Add/Remove programs list.

1) Do a search for, and then reply to this thread with the precise and
complete pathname to SBAMSvc.exe

2) Please upload the SBAMSvc.exe file to:

<http://www.virustotal.com/>

3) When Virus Total has rendered an analysis, please copy/paste the
report to this thread.

4) Was your system pre-built and purchased with Windows and other software?

5) Would a prior owner/user/computer tech have installed any after
market applications for you?

Thank you for the suggestion/request. I have myself in quite a pickle at the
moment. Since the program was a part of the Vipre AV system, I thought that
if I loaded the Vipre program and then uninstalled it, it would solve the
problem. However, all that did was make things worse. The uninstall did not
work (it hung up about 3/4 the way through) so I tried a re-install and that
doesn't work because it is apparently looking for some files that it had
already removed. So, when I boot up it starts the install program and then
hangs because it can't find some files, I guess. Anyhow, while trying to do
anything else with the computer I keep getting interrupted with these Window
Installer windows (Preparing to Install) that pop up and I have to cancel
out. Each time that happens the installer windows pop up 3 or 4 times then
rests for a while, then come back, etc. Is there anyway to find out what is
being loaded at bootup that I can cancel out this mess?

Thanks.

Sorry, I forgot to complete the answer to your questions. I purchased this
computer new with WinXP Home installed.
