SBAMSvc.ex program hogs cpu time

\015 WinXP computer. SBAMSvc.ex program from Sunbelt Software hogs cpu time. Periodically it uses 70 - 90% of cpu and freexes the rest of the computer. I don't know what the program is for or how it got on my computer. It apparently is part of an AV program called Vipre. I can't find out how to get rid of it. Help!\015

Answers :

Disable check files when they are opened or copied option in active protection settings. The problem will be gone.
It's an anti-spyware program. I've heard of lots of problems with that particular one.

I would go into safe-mode and uninstall it myself.
Just tap on the F8 keys as your pc is booting up and when the menu appears, use the arrow keys to select safe mode and press\015\012enter twice. If you are prompted to select a user, select your username.

Once in safe-mode go to "Start" then "Control Panel" then click the "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall it from there.

Hope this helps and good luck:)

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background.

I just bought a Sony Vaio at best buy and the ''geek squad'' wanted $40 to ''activate'' the second processor that supposedly doens't come active, they also were bragging that they would optimize the system but I just thought it sounded like a gimmick.

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
