UIODetect.exe-pid-3812?

Jump to solution

Until my McAfee Security Center updated to the 12.8.(903) Build. I have never noticed the above mentioned Process?

It is my understanding that this is a "Legitimate" Microsoft process. However, up until now I have never noticed the process

running in my "Task Manager"

If I may further elaborate...I noticed my "Modem" lights indicating activity. When opening Task manager, it revealed that "UIODetect.exe" was indeed running, accompanied by an additional "Task Host.exe" as well? It is my understanding that this process is actually "Interactive Services".

I waited for a lengthy period of time, and ran a "Quick Scan", followed by the latest "Getsusp" Version and both came up clean.

After doing so, I did a Restart and still noticed an additonal (number) of processes running. I checked Services.msc and it indeed is

listed as a service-"Manual" setting. Should I be concerned, and as it is defined as a " Interactive Service" what service could it be that it is

interacting with?

I did some searching, and I am not experiencing any "Flashing Icon" in my Task Bar, as the Microsoft Forums indicated could produce?

My primary concern, is should I be concerned? I am fairly knowledgeable in regards to such..(Crazy like a Fox). Yet as I have stipulated

more times than I can count...I respect and appreciate the knowledge and info from all that superceeds my knowledge of such.

Any response or enlightment in regards to my concerns, would be most appreciated.

Thank you in Advance,

As always, Thanks Ex_Brit....

I just opened "Services" and as you indicated..it shows as stopped.

When I open Services.Msc... (Start-up Settings)..it shows as stopped-Manual.

Again thank you, for as I have learned throughout the years...Whenever in "Doubt"

(Ask) !!!!

I debated on running a "Malewarebytes" On Demand Scan. However, I have repeatedly

become to realize that making the effort to do so, ends up with the same results...(Clean)

If it is acceptable to you...I will mark this Question "Assumed Answered"

P.S.- The aboved forementioned "Link"  is actually the one I researched.

Kind Regards,

CatDaddy

I see it in my system(s) and it's stopped, at present.  I don't think you need to be concerned.  I did find this online which was linked from a Microsoft Forums thread:  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/patricka/archive/2010/04/27/what-is-interactive-services-detection-and-why-i...

There are so many background services and applications that run seemingly at random that I've long since given up worrying about anything, especially my Event Viewer which seems to drive a lot of people to post worried threads elsewhere here.

If you are really concerned run a Hijackthis session and post the log on a specialist forum as instructed further down tha last link in my signature below.  But personally I can only assume it's a normal process/service.

This is still on my services just after being infected with 'ogxapo.exe' and 'ydusabax.exe'. These two stated that they record all keyboard entries and I can only assume that is why this damn service is now operating

I suggested some steps to take earlier, namely:  If you are really concerned run a Hijackthis session and post the log on a specialist forum as instructed further down tha last link in my signature below.
