I don't know what it is...but the fact that it has a double file extension and there seems little info on it via Google...would not be a good sign in my world.

Hello eagle27,

The extension .pf means that the file is located in the Prefetch folder. This is a folder Windows uses in order to get to the actual files more quickly - rather akin to a grocery list.

So, that leaves us with the question:

What is atisvc_tpekic.exe?

I can find no reference to it on Google.

So, please search for that file on your computer and when you find it, submit it to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

Please post the results back here.

If you DO NOT find the file let us know that too. :flowers:
