This is my first post though I have been a lurker for a while.
I run Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) as my anti-virus software. Today, it randomly stopped running and gave an alert to restart. I did restart and it turns off in about 5 seconds. This made me suspicious. It suggests I restart but I am hesitant as I am concerned that will embed something malicious.
I downloaded Rkill and ran it. It didn't detect any malware services. Rkill did terminate 3 processes, below:
* C:\windows\System32\atwtusb.exe (PID: 2228) [WD-HEUR]
* C:\Windows\SysWOW64\tblmouse.exe (PID: 4904) [WD-HEUR]
* C:\windows\system32\atwtusb.exe (PID: 2720) [WD-HEUR]
I restarted MSE and same issue.
Appreciate any help.
