While trying to diagnose a slow Windows 7 system, I found this in my Windows Services list (no description):





It starts:

"C:\Windows\autoscan\AutoScanSvc.exe" run



In C:\Windows\autoscan are these files:

10/03/2015  07:28 AM    <DIR>          .
10/03/2015  07:28 AM    <DIR>          ..
04/24/2013  10:31 AM               798 AutoScanSvc Install.lnk
04/24/2013  10:31 AM               796 AutoScanSvc Remove.lnk
10/03/2015  04:07 PM            22,525 AutoScanSvc.dat
07/22/2015  09:53 AM         1,000,563 AutoScanSvc.exe
10/03/2015  07:32 AM             4,031 AutoScanSvc.log
10/01/2015  08:25 PM            68,387 AutoScanSvcSetup.log
               6 File(s)      1,097,100 bytes
               2 Dir(s)  134,971,785,216 bytes free
Should I worry?

I recently ran ComboFix and AdwCleaner on this machine.

Hi, having run ComboFix you need to repost this question with that log here...

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
