Location of agent.exe

Posted: Saturday, 14 September 2013

If you're just using your computer and you run into a bit of lag whilst changing a song or while you're just browsing the internet, and open up task manager to investigate the issue, just to see a program called "agent.exe" hog some cpu.
Then the best way to solve this issue is to either uninstall DragonNaturally Speaking, or by taking the recommended route of blocking it within your Firewall...
The program can be found at these paths:
C:\Program Files\FLEXnet\Connect\11\agent.exe
C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\agent.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\agent.exe
Block those files from accessing the internet from your Firewall and you're all set... No more lag!
