Seems to be part of Powerware UPS files
it's a C++ made program that runs as s service. It restarts processes that have been stopped. related files are XYNTService.ini (here you can see which processes are watched) and XYNTService.log (logfile of taken actions). If the watched processes are dangerous, you should remove this program (look in XYNTService.ini)
I was uncertain of what it was, until Powerware was mentioned. Just bought a UPS (uninterruptable power supply), and have service software installed. Needed in order to have the UPS battery backup work correctly.

Best practices for resolving xyntservice issues

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