Hello everyone,


I have been using this laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate & Core i3. Recently I have started observing that some screen blinks in the background of the actual explorer that I am working on. After carefully watching I observed - In the taskbar an Icon like the one attached with this topic. Attached File  virus.jpg   13KB   1 downloads


This whole thing only occurs in a fraction of a millisecond. So you are not able to even click it.


I'm afraid if this is some sort of spyware since the icon in taskbar shows a camera icon. I then installed Trend Micro Max Security latest version But it is also not able to find or stop it.


I would highly appreciate any help on this.

From my research this process appears to be related to Interactive Services Detection service (UI0detect.exe)...which monitors the user input for interactive services and sometimes causes the Taskbar to set the icon to intermittedly blink (pop-up) as a notification.


Stopping and disabling the related service should resolve the issue.


To disable a service, press the WINKEY + R keys on the keyboard or click the Start Orb > Run...,
and in the Open dialog box, type: services.msc
Click OK or press Enter.

Note: You can also click the Start Orb and in the Search Box, type: services.msc

Windows Services will open:

  • Click the Extended tab at the bottom to view all the info on your services.
  • In the Services applet, scroll down the list and find the service called Interactive Services Detection.
  • Double-click on the name of the service to open the Properties page.
  • In the Properties Window > General Tab that opens, click the "Stop" button.
  • From the drop-down menu next to "Startup Type", click on "Disable".
  • Click "Apply", then "OK" and close any open windows.
