I tried to post in the appropriate forums but got the message I wasn't allowed to.
I am trying to figure what vmhost.exe is. Removing it from the task manager with all associated processes also removes webdev.exe.
Searching the web for information about these two .exe's has been frustrating. I'm not having much luck trying to figure out what these are.
But elsewhere here in these forums is a post by a moderator that says:

If the file is here it is legitimate.
So I've written this mod and asked him for more information about vmhost, I mean what is it? Where does it come from?
I'm not good with these things, they are difficult for me. If anyone has information on what these processes are and where they come from, I would appreciate it. Elsewhere on the web some people are saying they're trojans. I've tried a bunch of anti-virus programs and the only thing I've found that even seems to notice vmhost.exe is malwarebytes. But on their site I'm not finding much info about this .exe.
Any help or info you can give about what this .exe is and where it comes from would be appreciated. If it's legit it would be good to know more about it so we can clear this up for people who are finding in their running processes and spending a lot of time trying to remove it. Thank you!
