Every time I look at my process tree, I see a program called "adsnw831.exe" running. I tried to search google on "adsnw831.exe", but didn't get any results. So I searched for "adsnw" and found out that adsnw.dll is a standard windows dll.
But now I still don't know what adsnw831.exe is doing. I tried to search the forum, but didn't find anything useful. Autoruns told me a program called 279dbfcf4ed7.exe runs on logon, and the image path of that program is adsnw831.exe. Because of that, I post this in the WIndows Startup Programs Database. I really don't have a clue what an image path is - I'm kinda n00bish - so I hope I chose the right forums.
Can anyone tell me what adssnw831.exe is doing and if it's a genuine process/startup program?
Thanks in advance!
Oh before I forget, I run Windows XP Professional.
