Default dagent.exe and GravitixService.exe - what are they?

My office computer seems particularly slow today.

I checked process and saw these two that I hadn't hear of before.


In particular, dagente.exe seems to be chewing up cpu (in the 40's).

GravitixService.exe just uses memory.

What are they, what do they do, can I kill them with impunity?

thanks,

jim

This is PatchLink Update. You shouldn't kill the process because it is probably in the midst of installing a patch.

Most likely, your machine is catching up on patches that it missed, and once it is done, things will return to normal.

Default thanks

Axel,

Thanks. I did end up killing once before I read your message.
Next time I'll try to let it go.

Jim
