First time ever going to a forum like this, so sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but..

every once in a while, a cmd prompt appears and then disappears suddenly. I know this has been a problem for others, but I'm not sure if I've really found a solution.

Checking here, I have this task that isn't in my schedule tasks, and I can't find any info online on it, so I was wondering, is this potentially a bad task or is it normal?

 

I can't seem to remove it, I guess because of it's owner account.

Also, I've run Adwcleaner which deleted one chrome extension I think, but didn't stop the cmd prompts.

I thought about creating a schedule task that would run a removal command line as the system, but I'm not sure how to do that...

Any info would be appreciated!

Ive heard some things about speccy so I think I'd like to avoid it for now, I'm sure there's another way around this. Thanks though! Do you have any other ideas that could help?

Speccy would give us more info about services running on your PC and so.

Just out of interest: What have you heared about Speccy?

One idea I have: Do you have the latest Microsoft Office update installed? Office used to open a command prompt every hour.

Hey guys. So, it SEEMS to have stopped, I disabled some startup processes and restarted, and I haven't seen any cmd prompts since, which was a few hours ago now (I believe it would appear once every hour or so?).

here are my startup apps, and you can see which ones I have disabled. I don't know what the Program program is. 

I haven't been to any sketchy sites or been downloading anything recently, I should be alright since it seems to have stopped, right?

Also, from what I've heard, there are a lot of better programs than speccy and it tends to use a lot of cpu. Perhaps I'm just too nitpicky about some things.

Just commenting on your last statements: Speccy shows everything we would have needed to identify the issue. It using a lot of CPU does not matter either as I don't think you have to do anything CPU intensive else while it runs ;)
