Good morning.

I have a netpc, PackardBell DOT-S with only 1G memory, running Windows 7 starter.

I am trying to stop processes that I don't need. I noticed that I have two unsecapp.exe processes, one belongs to system, one belongs to the logged user. Both seems OK, they are in the correct place (C:\windows\system32\wbem) and signed by Microsoft.

Can please anyone explain why I have two unsecapp.exe? Do I need them?

Thanks for any help.

Louis, thanks for the help.

I already did a Google search before posting.

My question was why I have two unsecapp.exe processes running on that PC. Maybe that some SW is calling that process? I read somewhere that Avast! had something related with unsecapp, but I have not Avast! .

Anyway, the PC is running OK, a bit slow but I think that this is due to lack of memory.

 

Thanks again!

There is nothing that says that Window will run only 1 instance of a given process.

 

If IE is used...every window/tab opened results in an additional (you start with two) process being reflected.

 

Svchost processes can be any number and be bona fide.

 

I imagine that there are others...I don't bother monitoring processes running at any time unless the system displays a hiccup of some sort.
