While this particular file is running, it prevents scrolling operations on touchpad mice using Synaptics driver software. While it probably isn't dangerous, it is a nuisance if it impacts negatively on normal operation of other legitmate products/devices.

This particular Panda component does inhibit scrolling operation of touchpad mice using Synaptics driver software. Normal mouse operation restored by terminating Srvload in Task Manager.

Spoke to Panda Tech Support and they told me it's a trojan from web sharing sites like Kazaa.

It is in the Panda Software folder properly and part of Panda--if not, get rid of it.

Best practices for resolving srvload issues

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