    Atbroker.exe - High CPU


    I've been having a problem with the process "Windows Assistive Technology" also known as the process "Atbroker.exe". I'm not sure what is causing it but it seems to consume a lot of my cpu which when running other programs, My CPU can go up to 100% because this process is already is consuming 50%. I have tried a lot of troubleshooting like disabling the firewall and windows components like indexing. From what i understand this is a Windows process so it's not like it's harmful but i can't figure out what is causing this problem. Since it's a windows component it doesn't pinpoint to a specific program or anything like that. Please help! It seems to happen randomly into my sessions on the computer, Never at startup. I can kill the process and my cpu goes back to normal but then eventually it comes back. So does anybody know what this can be?
