So, I was simple using my computer when wuauclt.exe started up. I know it's Windows Automatic updates, but at the same time in Task Manager, I noticed an svchost.exe running around 80,000kb, when it normally runs around 10,000 to 20,000kb. It returned to normal when wuauclt.exe finished up. I assume it was the update check causing this little thing with svchost. However, just to be sure, I closed down firefox and prepared to scan with Malwarebytes. in Task Manager, there were TWO plugin-container.exe processes running. though, one was under 100kb, and the other was normal. Both of the disappeared when firefox closed. Meanwhile, after the Malwarebytes scan, it detected no malware. The computer is running and behaving normally. So, I just wanted to know if there could be any malware or if I'm just being paranoid.
