Yes, and after 2 years, it's creating an EAccess violation, and is driving me nuts. Can't get rid of it. Problem just started. It's an Asus Motherboard overclocking software. Worked fine for two years, now have a problem after setting up the Asus AP softpoint wireless. Disabled the wireless, the bridge and hamachi. No positive results: still shows violation due to Overclk.exe.

Its from Asus Ai Booster which is used to overclock your processor. A nice, easy tool so that you don't have to go into the BIOS.

Best practices for resolving OverClk issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with OverClk. 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 OverClk.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. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
