      This text file appeared on my C: and have this text repeat several times:


      Connect to Server CreateFile() successful.

      svc_write_buffer->InBufferSize ==> 12

      svc_write_buffer->SvcCommand ==> 0

      Sent message to server successful.

      Read was successfull


      Anyone knows what is this and how can I stop it?

          Thank you for contacting us. This is a log file generated by Intel® Manageability Engine Firmware Recovery Agent. This software was needed for updating the system back in 2011. Let me share the following link, it is a blog about it: Intel Manageability Firmware Recovery Agent | Intel® Developer Zone


          Could you post information about your system (Hardware/Software), please?

          Could you check if you have installed this software on your system, please?


          Let me know your results.




          Best regards,

            Hi, faugub_intel. Thanks for your answer!


            1. System:

            My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L45-B, it came with Windows 8.1 Single Language (no upgrade).

            Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70 GHz 2.40 GHz.

            RAM: 6.00 GB.

            SO: 64 bits.

            No touchscreen.


            2. Intel Manageability Firmware Recovery Agent:

            I just have install these ones:

            - Intel(R) Technology Access

            - Intel (R) Update Manager


            But at Task Manager I found all these processes:


            • Intel(R) Capability Licensing Service Interface
            • Intel(R) Dynamic Application Loader Host Interface
            • Intel(R) Local Management Service
            • Intel(R) ME Service
            • Intel(R) Technology Access - Service
            • Intel(R) Technology Access Legacy CsLoaderService


            3. Problem:

            I think I did identify the problem related to this text file. If you can, please check the details in my previous post:

            PROBLEMS with the Intel(R) Technology Access v.


            Thank you.

                Well, for the closure of this topic I have to say this:


                In my specific case, the IFRToolLog.txt file on my C: was related to a problem with the Intel(R) Technology Access. After a deep research, I decided to uninstall it. Since then, my PC stopped generating that text file, so, for me, that was the solution.
