As the title says, today taskeng.exe started popping up randomly. There's no content to the window, simply a flashing underscore, as though a command is being run. The title bar of the window only says "taskeng.exe". The only taskeng.exe on my system is in windows\system32.
I'm on Windows 7 x64.
I don't see anything in the Event Viewer that's been entered at the same time as one of these pop-ups.
It only started today, and I made no changes to my computer yesterday, or today (with the exception of updating MSE/malwarebytes definitions).
I did some googling, with most of it pointing towards scheduled tasks, but I sifted through the scheduled tasks, and I don't see any with a "Last Run Time" matching when I know of one popup (2:33-34 PM EST today).
I'm currently running MSE and malwarebytes full scans.
I did find this, but unfortunately it doesn't appear to be relevant, as I don't have the specified hidden task.
Can anyone help with this? It's incredibly irritating.
Edit: I right clicked on the window in the start bar, and found it's officebackgroundtaskhandler.exe
