Hi. As I was checking my processes tab earlier today, I noticed an unusual process called find.exe, which has never been there before. When I tried to click Open File Location, nothing happened. It also keeps disappearing from the processes list after 4 or so seconds for a brief moment, only to return. I can't stop it, as it says Unable to terminate process:
As you can see the description box is empty. I've tried killing it through CMD:
and AVG immediately pops a warning message:
Even though I choose the Protect Me option and remove it, the find.exe process is back again. I've done this three times already, and the warning has popped up in every try. Doing a bit of searching, I found that the find.exe is located in my System32 folder:
Even though it says it was created in 2009, I've never seen it in my processes tab. It cannot be deleted:
I am the administrator and have given myself full control for the System32 folder through the security tab:
I've done it, because when I tried to delete it before, it said I needed the permission from TrustedInstaller.
I am really annoyed by this and have come to seek help on your forum. A massive thanks for all the help in advance.
