Yesterday,  this file dcdktkzyl.exe started hogging resources on my desktop running Win 7 Pro.   It shows as Chrome in taskmgr.  The file is siting in Users/Appdata/Myusername/locallow/Microsoft/qeecowjnc/slpdawm/.  I had never observed it before. and I usually monitor running processes.


Webroot support looked at it--and was not sure what it is.  It does not show up on this laptop as a Chrome file.  The tech support guy deleted Chrome but this file is still there and running.  It is also persistent and replicates itself if deleted.  If I block within Webroot it then just keeps popping up as blocked and this also slows resources materially.
