hello, each time I run roguekiller in normal mode, it finds esif_assist_64.exe in C:/Windows/Temp/DPTF/ folder.

Detection is labeled as Suspicious.Path, and type is Process.

Each time I click on delete it does not get deleted, instead it gets "killed".

File shows up every time I boot computer and shows time of creation time I booted the computer.

Description of the file is: Intel ® Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Utility Application.

File does not show up in the folder when I boot computer in safe mode, and neithet does it get detected by roguekiller. It gets detected only when I run it in normal mode.

I ran it through virustotal and it came in clean, however I checked the details and it shows all certificates as legit except the first one. Also, it specified it as a Portable execution file.

Is it legit? Thanks

Hi ask again in a new topic here

Include that RogueKiller log.

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
