Installes with X10 driver. It opens COM ports at irregular intervals, also seems to wake computer from sleep to do serial IO on COM ports. I detected this by running Eltima Serial port monitor.

If it is for the ATI graphics card, what is it doing in my computer? I have *never* had an ATI graphics card in my computer. nVidea only.

I own some x10 devices but this process was consuming 25% of my CPU - I may turn it on again to find out is it is using Port 80 to send data or share my CPU. On the last couple weeks my system stopped sleeping at night - suspicious.

Best practices for resolving X10nets issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with X10nets. 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 doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, 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 X10nets.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.
