Windows 7: Mysterious new service!

Troops, System Internals Suite, Rootkit detector. I checked it a couple of times after deletion /restart & it morphed its title randomly. I don't think this app likes to play with W7! Cheers. Ich

I find it odd that a service would be ran from the temp folder because if you cleaned your temp files the service exe would no longer be found and the service would fail to start. There is a slight chance it was used for an installation and was meant to be removed if the install was sucessful.

I should have asked if it had a description under the properties as well.

Does the computer still have any software installed releating to the trigonometric functions or any other engineering or mathematical functions?

The title change for the exact same process wouldn't be from any valid software installation but have the higher probably of a malware. Could be some fake ware that didn't get on quite fully or a trojan dropper.

Generally when looking up a specific name for a known process the search results will indicate at least one program whether a product info page or someone is having a problem with a program. On the other hand all search engines tried simply ending up back on this thread seems to suggest something else!

Night Hawk,

Very valid point, I'll use one of my image archives to be on the safe side.

This is one good reason for having a full system image backup kept safe somewhere just for these types of occasions! At least you have something to fall back on.

You titled this thread correctly for sure. Once you have the image restored look over things and see if anything is missing if you did happen to add something on since the image was first created. If you had downloaded a free utility or system tweaker of some type recently it may have included a hidden bug of some type. I've seen that enough times.

Then you'll know that you are better off without it!
