WsAppService.exe is a vicious backdoor key capture and spy trojan stealing personal info such bankcard details and emails stored on your computer.
Severe RAM "hog". Kills CPU performance if an active process. Stopping the process restored performance but I can't find and delete all Wondershare code. Problem keeps coming back.
Win 10 nach dem Start wird immer langsamer, Tastatur und Maus Befehle sehr stark verzögert, Arbeitsspeicher immer am Limit
WsAppService.exe may not be a threat, but on my PC it took up all of the memory available, so I deleted the Wondershare folder in the X86 Programs directory

Causes my win xp based computer to thrash continuously. Best to remove it
Memory leaks. Uses up 22GB of my system RAM over a period of about 10 hours.
This is a unuseful file that can be hidden from antivirus services so please remove it from your system completely and your PC will have more boost of memory
