This process is running on my wife's computer and often causes it to run quite slow. Google search shows conflicting reports from "it's a normal program that is part of the Kaspersky security suite" to "it's a remote based trojan that should be removed immediately". Can anyone clear this up please? (I installed "The Shield 2008 Deluxe" to see if it recognized this file as a trojan but it didn't)
Does your wife's computer have Kaspersky security suite installed on it? If not, then I'd say it's probably not legit. If so, it probably is but still merits closer attention. Also, if Kaspersky is installed, check to make sure that it's fully up to date.
