@badasdart ,

After a quick google search, it looks like this service is associated with AMD graphics cards. I’m not sure if it’s a vital process or not. I don’t believe it’s “malicious” in any way, however.

Then why does it show up on my virus scan as a possible handle leak???

I googled it to this is what I found, but I don't know weather its a bad file or not,   Important: Some malware camouflages itself as AMDRSServ.exe, particularly when located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder. Therefore, you should check the AMDRSServ.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

It’s not a Virus scan it’s system analyzer scan and i don’t use it as you can’t fix Leaks and other things as it’s a baseline tool only!

This is from my system and there is nothing I can do to correct the issues!
