Could you provide us some details? Which version of AMT you are using? what is your OS? Are you seeing this all the time or just after booting up? Are you performing any other AMT operations on your system? Are you running multiple copies of LMS by any chance?
1. AMT Version is 126.96.36.199 on an ASUS V1S notebook. No other AMT operations on this system.
2. OS is Windows VISTA
3. The process graps approximately 50% of both CPU's capacity direct after the System starts, which leads to 90-100% of processor usage. It remains like this if you work with the laptop. LMS takes all CPU power it can get.
4. There is only one LMS process running
My temporary solution is to disable the AMT services, which leads to normal processor load.
I have checked for viruses by using a unix boot CD with two different scanners and McAffe under windows VISTA. No viruses were detected.
I hope this information helps to solve the problem.
Sorry, I picked the wrong version out of the README-file. Where it is still 188.8.131.52.
But here are the data of the LMS.exe file:
Size: 121.624 Bytes
And still the same problem... ;-)
AMT does not support Vista until Version AMT 2.1 - either you should move to AMT2.1, or perhaps go back to Windows XP - this is the first thing that is "glaring" about your situation. Also, once the OS/AMT version is resolved, make sure you go into the "remove programs" option in the Control Panel and make sure you are starting with a clean upgrade - remove all versions you previously loaded and start fresh.
It always was Version 2.5. There was only version 2.0 written in the readme file. I guess, the version named in the readme file, was not properly edited.
I did NOT run an update of AMT.
If I look at the properties of the process, I see the version 2.5, which is running.
We couldn't reproduce this issue. A couple of questions:
1. Have you provisioned this system? If so, in which mode - SMB or Enterprise?
2. Did you get a CD with AMT drivers along with your system? If so, could you uninstall AMT drivers and see the issue is still there? Then you can re-install the drivers.
Let us know how it goes.
Do you have the same AMT version and system that privat22 had, or do you have a different system/AMT version? You mention your computer is about three months old, does that mean it's a 2010 platform system?
As a general rule we always recommend checking whether there's an updated version of the AMT software/driver bundle on the OEM site (where you would obtain this depends on the OEM, I know the sites for some OEM's and systems so I might be able to help there). This is the kind of issue that would potentially be fixed in a maintenance release, so that would probably be the first step.
If there isn't an updated bundle, just let me know and we can look at next steps.
The Local Manageability Service provides local access to some Active Management Technology features. If this isyour personal system then you can safely disable LMS. If this is a work computer then you would need to work with your IT department to determine if it can be disabled.

Intel local management service high cpu windows 2012 r2. not sure what it is, but only happens on startup. once disabled it does re-occur. Uses 100% of CPU usage. Ran Malware and ESET with no threats found.
under properties it shows w3wp.exe location is \windows\vss\Writers
