I cannot kill this process or remove it off my system no matter how many different programs I use to do this. I doubt if it has anything to do with Webroot security software, even though the path is: C:\Program Files\Webroot\Security\Current\Plugins\Antimalware\AEI.exe . This file takes a life of its own, using 100% of CPU time at various times of the day, even after I tried to uninstall the program several times. Webroot is not much help. I could not find any program uninstallers on their web site.

Webroot's new anti viruses instant virus protection process meant no harm to computers, but does take up a decent amount of CPU sadly.

I have to agree. My system was brought to a standstill after the new ver 7. I went back to the previous version.

I have tried every way I know of getting this off my computer. Any program I can't control, change or remove is a VIRUS to me.

Aei.exe is for me a dangerous virus. I was able to remove it by using the Safe logon

I went to Control PAnel and removed webroot software. Fortunately I had loaded the version before this to a folder in my Prams folder and after uninstall and restarting system I ran the earlier .exe and I am back to the previous version. All traces of AEI.exe is gone (system task manager at least doesnt show it and my computer is running as it was before I loaded version 7. Webroot has got to respond to this or it's a new anti-virus program for me when this subscription ends!
