Just as a brief forward, this is my first post, but I did read on posting rules and so forth, trying not to post in the wrong place, and my apologies for breaking any rules!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Recently I've been having issues where my games and fullscreen applications have been minimizing within about 1-2 minutes of playing, and will continue to do so every 1-2 minutes. This has been frustrating so i started searching.

 

I searched through my processes running in the background and found nothing extraordinary until the other day I found one running called "vmhost.exe"

 

After a lot of searching around I found a link to an article http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/538171/vmhostexe/ This was my first introduction to BleepingComputer, so I figured it can't hurt to try!!

 

In order to hasten the process, I've followed only this step: 

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Lets try this

Please download aswMBR ( 4.5MB ) to your desktop.

  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon, and click Run.
  • When asked if you'd like to "download the latest Avast! virus definitions", click Yes.
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan.
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop, then copy and paste it in your next reply.

Here are my results:

Thanks for the help! Hope we can figure this out!
 
**** On a side note, I can't be sure if this "vmhost.exe" is even adware or malware or what have you, nor can I determine that it's what causing my minimization issues. There seems to be two or three issues in the log, but of course i'm no expert. Thanks again!*******
