for the first time(it may have been there before but i never spotted it) today i saw in task manager on windows 8 a file called dwm.exe running under the details tab. this task was being executed by a username i have never heard of before "DWM-1" under the username column(all other processes either execute as "my username", "SYSTEM", "LOCAL SERVICE" or "NETWORK SERVICE" )and the file located in C:\Windows\System32 with a size of 115 KB or so. i tried to go into the windows folder and scan this file with MBAM and it did so except MBAM gave a log registering to had taken 7 seconds to scan zero files, scanning with avg shows nothing. i suppose i'm a bit paranoid but has anyone else seen dwm.exe on windows 8 running under a weird username like that? and one other weird thing, when one tries to terminate this process with right click-->end task in the details tab of task manager the screen flashes black momentarily then comes back to show the process is still running.
