find and stop "AppleMobileDeviceSupport"
Posted 07 January 2012 - 01:37 AM
if you recently installed anything like apple's itunes, and your pc has become unresponsive, you probably have a runaway service.
while the itunes folder, etc. is easy enough to find, and the program easy enough to uninstall, AppleMobileDeviceSupport is rather well hidden and doesn't uninstall.
now, that is easily enough stopped from services, by first "stop"ping the service then disabling it.
but if your PCs cpu is consumed by it, use a windows pe or linux disk to clean boot and access the (probably) c: drive.
here are those less-obvious files to eliminate:
c:\program files\common files\AppleMobileDeviceSupport\Bin
hope this helps someone.

What about disabling the service, drivers with AutoRuns?

there is nothing in the control panel to remove it.
so, i provided its location for easy removal
i'm sure you could stop the service, but removal means no future headaches.
