Anyone know what this is?I am wondering,because other then the fact that it is all in caps. I also have this as an outbound item listed 3 times on differant days.(but says program no longer exists)
Tell Mcafee about this program??? Wow i am starting to lose track of all of the problems i am having.Does not look good.Any help would be great.
Thanks so much Jack
It is a windows file but can be compromised
Taskhost.exe is a generic host process for Win7 32-bit services. The location in Windows needs to be taskhost.exe is C:\Windows\System32\Taskhost.exe. I have 2 copies running on my PC atm.
Thanks for responding.My concern is i have been having ongoing problems for weeks & am still waiting for a call for tier 3 support.I was told by Tromine that they would call but have yet to recieve this call.I am no computer whiz and i do have Taskhost exe in my firewall but not written like this 1.I believe i have reason for concern and these problems are now mounting as you can see by some of my other posts.http://community.mcafee.com/thread/24394?tstart=0 I noticed most of the problems after an update that left me unprotected,According to Windows action center.I also have seen permissions through my program permissions(security) granted to an icon with a red circle and line through it.When i open up some programs the icon and user permission disapears.Would you know what this is?I have been waiting for weeks,possibley infected and still have recieved know answers from Mcafee.Any help would be appreciated.
Remove that icon's permission make sure your firewall security level is at least monitored.
See if it pops up a request for access.
Have you (haven't the time to check all your posts) scanned via the suggestions hereReport anything detected.
and try the free scanners (update them before running)
SuperAntispyware www.superantispyware.com (http://www.superantispyware.com) and Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.org (http://www.malwarebytes.org) both of which are free. Just follow the directions and check for the latest updates before you run them. Let them clean out anything they find and reboot the computer each time they are finished.
I have malwarebytes and it has found nothing.Mcafee has also found nothing.As far as the permission thing.What happens is when i open a program to look at the permissions,sometimes i come accross that permission that i spoke about.But it disapears as soon as i open it.If i open it again after logging off it will be there only for seconds.Then it removes itself.I have never had the time to see what it says.I suppose while i am waiting i can try the stinger..... Thanks for your thoughts. Jack
Hi, I was able to capture the icon that disappears.Here is 1 instance of this icon.I have also seen this in other programs under permissions.when i open them up it vanishes.I am not sure what this is.I had to pin snipping tool to taskbar in order to capture.The item outlined vanishes almost instantly when i open permissions.Anyone familiar with this?
I appreciate the help.But this just makes my point more valid.I have been experiencing problems since the update i recieved over 1 month ago.1st of all to be unprotected when logging on is a problem by itself.I also don`t know how long this has been.So before i caught this problem myself,i could have been surfing unprotected.Besides the fact i have had this problem for over a month & have done everything from uninstall,reinstall to MVT and stinger,ect.All of which yeilded no results.There are to many odd things to even remember at this point.So i am not even sure how tech support is going to help at this point.But it would have been great to have some support when the problem 1st occured.That said i appreciate your help. Thanks Jack
