Hello. Can anybody tell me what the process named "Kill" is ?. My pc sometimes won't shutdown. When I go to task manager, I allways find a process named "Kill". When i end that process, my pc can be shutdown without any problems. Is it malware or a virus ?

I would go to bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html and scan your computer for malware. If you do this, you have to use Internet Explorer.

2 things come to mind. There is a small application called Kill Process and a malware tool called Killbox.
See if you can find he file location for the process

I tried finding the location, but to no avail. I also tried running a scan with Malwarebytes. It's still there, and won't let me shut down unless I end that process.
