    %appdata%g\ProductData\update.spt - What is it?

    This file, C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ProductData\up date.spt, appears to have been installed with Advanced System Care v. 8 from IOBit. It gets updated periodically, but I can't figure out what process updates it. If I delete it, it just reappears later. Does anyone know what this file is for? Here are its contents:

    I don't use Wise 360 or any similar tool. ?However, perhaps like other tools I do use, it is marking things to monitor, to take care of, etc.? Is it hurting your resources, slowin' thing down?

    It's not slowing things down, just a nuisance. I can't figure out what process creates it.

    Hi Bill,

    What OS are you using, is this IObit Advanced SystemCare 8 Free, Pro or Ultimate and did you accept the default install of Driver Booster 2 Free when Advanced SystemCare 8 was installed?

    The reason I ask is because it looks like only the Pro and Ultimate versions offer "Auto Update to the Latest Version" according to the IObit website.

    Hope this helps...

    I'm running Win 7 Pro. I have the Pro version. I paid for earlier versions of ASC and accepted its offer to update to 8. I did not install Driver Booster 2 to the best of my knowledge. I hope not, as my drivers aren't broken, so I do not need to fix them.

    I have set many of ASC's components to not run at startup, but I seem to have missed something, as that file keeps reappearing after I delete it.

    I installed IObit Advanced SystemCare 8 (ASC) Free (inc. the default Driver Booster 2 Free) into a new Win 7 Pro x32 VM.

    After installation had finished I exited ASC from the icon in the Notification Area. A check with Task Manager showed 3 ASC processes still running - DiskDefrag.exe, Monitor.exe and UninstallMonitor.exe. A quick check of Services.msc showed a new Advanced ServiceCare Service 8 service installed and running whilst Regedit showed a new Run entry pointing to ASCTray.exe had been added to HKCU. A check in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ProductData\ showed an update.spt file had been created.

    I deleted the update.spt file, restarted the VM and found that the update.spt file had been recreated. I deleted the update.spt file again then deleted the ASC RUN key in HKCU and restarted. After less than a minute the update.spt file had been recreated.

    Next I deleted the update.spt file then disabled the Advanced ServiceCare Service 8 service and restarted. Within less than 2 minutes the update.spt file had been recreated.

    Next I ran SysInternals' AutoRuns. This showed me that I had missed LiveUpdate installed as an automatic (IObit) service with no description... so it's not easy to spot. I deleted the update.spt file then disabled this service and restarted. After more than 30 mins there was still no sign of the update.spt file being recreated. As a double-check I restarted again. Once again the update.spt file was not recreated.

    Conclusion - Find and disable the IObit service with Display name: LiveUpdate (Service name: LiveUpdateSvc).

    It is wise to have restorable image backups into place and into practice alongside any complete PC care programs, I learned long long ago, and have been using Norton Ghost [in the past] and now Acronis True Image. I had Wise 360 for a short time, and removed it. Total care can mean: later, oh boy, I better care!

    That's true. I always live be a quote that says "Data only exists if backed up". I will be an ugly scenario if your PC crashes an lose all your files.

    UpdateInfo.exe from IObit Advanced Systemcare keeps coming back

    I have set many of ASC's components to not run at startup, but I seem to have missed something, as that file keeps reappearing after I delete it.

    Are you talking about IObit Advanced SystemCare 8? (Sorry but your post doesn't make this clear.)

    If so, have you found and disabled the IObit service with Display name: LiveUpdate (Service name: LiveUpdateSvc) after running services.msc (possibly using "Run as administrator..." depending on how your PC/laptop is set up)?

    Hope this helps...

    Yes it is IOBit Adv SystemCare 8, and I did set the LiveUpdate service to manual now.

    wise 360 is a great addition to cleaning up crap from the pc , BUT as any other cleaning program there isnt such a thing as a completely automated cleaner that cleans only the crap and leaves the good stuff , such apps require user interaction and abit of thought before doing what you do , maybe even read a tut or two if not entirely sure about what does what and how , saves alot of headaches afterwards , and yes backups are something one should do regardless
