Mysqladmin.exe consumes vast resources and won't stop jumping around

  1. Greetings,

    I am having difficulty with my computer that started only recently. Slowed response led me to the Task Manager. Under Processes the mysqladmin.exe keeps cycling on and off. My performance indicates a CPU usage of 60-80% constantly. When mysqladmin.exe appears, it is in a different location on the list every time, and it makes it difficult to catch. When I do manage to catch it and attempt to end the process, it tells me access is denied.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a way to regain control?

    I am using McAfee, (updated constantly), and Windows update (updated as I feel necessary).

    I just "fixed" a the same problem

    mysqladmin was hogging massive CPU time and popping in and out of tasklist. I tracked it down to a recent install of Adobe Cue. I think it was incompatable with my firewall and keeped attempting to connect to the internet and getting shut out. I uninstalled Cue and it went away. Later I will reinstall and set my firewall to allow it to get out to the internet. Most apps will trigger a permission dialogue when they first try to get to the outside, but Mysql never asked so it kept failing. Hope this help you solve this problem.
