I have a process on my machine, IPSSVC.EXE, that seems to be quite the resource hog. It keeps the CPU at 25% all the time, and the machine gets hot after a while. I had been unfortunate in the past to get hit by a huge adware suite. I spent hours removing it all, but my PC has never quite been the same since (it's a new IBM Thinkpad laptop bought in December).
Anyway, I did a little research about this process. I see that it is "produced by LanCom and offers a VPN client for their services"
I never installed this process myself, nor do I have a need to VPN. Can someone help determine if this is another instance of adware or virus. If it's the latter, how do I remove it? I've tried multiple scan types for adware and virus scans - it all *seems* to be okay.
