http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/jusched.exe-16011.html Based on bleepingcomputer's startup list it said this process was undesirable. Is it accurate because I have this running on my task manager process list. I uploaded it to Virustotal and it was clean but I'm still unsure whether it's safe or not.

Note: Sorry guys I posted the wrong link. Just edited it. I also found jusched.exe using msconfig in the startup tab. Information on this is much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

 

What is the file path for the file on your computer?  The file path is important.  The one you linked to shows this: C:\Windows\jusched.exe

 

There is a legitimate file of that name which updates Java.  Since Java frequently is exploited, it's important to keep Java up to date if you have it installed.

 

For more information, you can read this entry:

Oh thank you. I was scared for a moment because I noticed that all my computers had it. After reading the description of the link that I provided I paniced. Thank you for clearing it up. I've had some java problems in the past so I was just conflicted. Thanks so much for clearing it up.

I also have a few other items I want to check out. Should I start a new topic and work on each individually?

Go ahead and ask about them in this topic.  I'll edit the topic title to reflect that this will be about more than that one entry.

In Users/Name/AppData/Roaming I have a folder named config as well as wklnhst.dat
Can you tell me what these are for? The config folder was empty and virustotal doesn't have information on the .dat file. In one of the other threads someone had this file too and it didn't help much. I scanned with MBAM and nothing came out as well as SUPERAntispyware.

No worries...wklnhst.dat is a file native to the Microsoft "Works" software. It's harmless. The "Config" folder also should be left as it is as there are quite a few reasons why it may be present. While it's empty, I wouldn't worry. Keep up your security programs and scan often.
