This article applies to:

EaseUS Todo Backup 5.3 build 10/30/2012


After installing EaseUS Todo Backup 5.3 (build 20121030), Agent.exe running in the background takes up too much system resources and slows down the machine.



Start Task Manager, users may find Agent.exe using around 50% CPU (Shown in the picture) or too much Memory even when there is no backup task/plan running.
