RPS.exe as NTL or Virgin anti-virus always creeps up to 100% processor usage, constantly crashing your PC. Use task manager to halt the process, then restart and it's back to normal. Ho hum, free software from useless suppliers! :-)
Is used for PCGuard. Ending this process closes down PCGuard. However it does hog a lot of commit charge and CPU
Theres a message keep popping up that says that some virus cant be deleted but when i end the process Rps.exe, the message stops. i think its dangerous.

This file is a part of the Anti-Virus Protection provided to Telus users. This file works along with the live scanning process and therefore is a necessary application & is harmless other than using some Cpu power from time to time.

Best practices for resolving Rps issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Rps. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Rps.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: ASecurity 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. BMalwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
