Ich hatte meine Festplatte ein paar Stunden zuvor aufgeräumt und hatte danach knapp 350MB frei, eben kam ich wieder an meinen Rechner und auf einmal waren von den 350MB nur noch 10MB übrig. Ausserdem hatte ich einen permanenten Datentransfer von 2-5kbit/s, was mich sehr stutzig gemacht hat. Der Security Task Manager hat den Prozess als sehr gefährlich eingestuft, ich hab ihn beendet und schon war der permanente Datentransfer verschwunden. Ich weiß allerdings nicht genau, welche Daten übertragen wurden. DANKE STM!

Best practices for resolving pvcumd issues

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