Windows 10 Hidden Unknown Background Process

by giganut / January 16, 2016 7:51 AM PST

Hello, I have what I believe to be a problem. On all my Windows 10 machines I have discovered a Hidden Unknown Background Process running at all times. This Unknown Process is not visible in the normal task manager, it's only visible in third party tools like cports and other networking tools. Dose any one know what this is, or if it's a problem or not. Sometimes the Unknown Process will launch many other Unknown Processes making windows 10 slow to react. Below is a list of hosts the Unknown Process is sending requests back and forth to.


Not everything in the list below was coming from this Unknown Process but a lot of it was, I just copied out my block list from my host file and posted it, so some of the list may have been coming from other possesses but most of them are from this Unknown Background application in windows 10.

I would like to add that I can't find this application at this time on my machine. I also can't kill it and when it's tampered with it seem to go into a protection mode and go's dormant for some time and then relaunches it's self.

A Word of Caution ..
by Carol~ Moderator / January 19, 2016 3:12 PM PST

Hi giganut,

I noticed you posted at 2 other forums. While it's your prerogative to post wherever you wish, it's in your best interest to follow only one set of instructions at one place.

I don't know if you noticed it when posting at Bleeping Computer, but they specifically state .....

'Do not post at another site asking for the same help for the same computer unless you previously have asked us to close your topic. If we find that you have posted for help at another site regarding the same problem, we will be forced to close your topic here. This is because two different sites can give conflicting advice, which makes it harder for our helpers to provide quality help.'

I agree with Bob. Stick with them. You're in good hands.

Best of luck,
Carol

TRY THIS IT WILL HELP .

I prescribe downloading and running Reimage. It's a PC repair instrument that has been demonstrated to recognize and settle numerous Windows issues with an abnormal state of accomplishment.

I've utilized it as a part of the past to distinguish and settle everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX blunders, degenerate records and forms, dll/exe/sys mistakes, recoup lost memory, Windows upgrade issues, defragging, malware evacuation and so forth.

You can download it direct from this connection
NOTE: Rogue software link removed by moderator
This connection will naturally begin a download of Reimage that you can spare to your PC.)

REIMAGE appears to be Rogue Malware.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
