This morning I noticed an ‘MSIBA.tmp’ entry in my (Windows) process list, which I eventually tracked down to a service named asurscsi. The service starts up that same tmp file (which I assume to be some executable) from my user’s Temp directory. It’s a left-over file from a Voyetra demo package I once installed, a couple of months ago. I’m not sure why it was never deleted during uninstall of that very same demo package (I think it’s officially called ‘Audio Surgeon’). I’m also not sure what it exactly does: the Voyetra pages aren’t all that clear.

If you’re so inclined you can either ‘disable’ it or remove it from your registry:

  1. Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and locate the name ‘asurscsi’ in the list. Double-click and set start-up type to ‘disabled’.
  2. Open up a command prompt, and type in ‘sc delete asurscsi’.

Like I said, I’m not sure what the program exactly does, but since it’s not a critical service, you may just as well discard of it completely.
