Looked at my antivirus status this morning and noticed that there are 8 "Caution.Rootkit" files found by my webroot antivirus.











After removing them and restarting the computer the AV again finds these as a threat, continuing the loop.


Are these actually threats? As far as I can tell everything before the "3cabb" is legitimate, but unsure of this particular extension.


Im running windows 10 Pro, Version 10.0.15063 Build 15063

Hi, open services.msc, you will see these services listed among windows services. The xxxxx at the end changes between boots. They are part of MS telemetry and one drive sync, introduced to windows ten, unless you know how to be rid of them (and there is no reason to) they will be on all win 10 machines. I cannot believe people still use third party security on windows ten when MS give you all you need, with the exception of malware in which case SuperAntiSpyware or the free version of malwarebytes can be used.
