Part of Asus motherboard utilities.
It is required for AI Suite II to run. If you don't use AI Suite you can disable it.
Interfered with proper functioning of my COM ports, preventing my TI MSP430 from communicating with my computer.
YEs we know it's part of the asus motherboard software, but is it essential for it to be running all the time? What does this particular process handle when it comes to the motherboard? It seems that the commenters only know where the program comes from but haven't a clue to whether it's safe to remove or what the program actually does, this is the information i'm looking for I already know it's part of the asus software the was preinstalled by the manufacture.

Best practices for resolving atkexComSvc issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with atkexComSvc. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the atkexComSvc.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
