awserv.exe gehört bei intel boards zum zubehör, wenn man intel desktop utilities laufen hat. (sys info tool, temp, volt, etc. etc.)

It is a part of Intel's Desktop Utility. It is used to remotely check the harddrive temperature or voltage if it reaches a certain temp/ or voltage drop/surge. Remove access in msconfig and set to manual instead of automatic in services. Removing this access does not effect the Desktop Utility...just the reporting to IT dept.
It belongs to Intel Dektop Utilities
Tool von Intel; Dient zur Überwachung von Temperaturen etc. Mir nur auf Acer PCs bekannt

Best practices for resolving awServ issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with awServ. 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 awServ.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.
