Possible Malware! Please Help!

Recommended Posts

The process in questions is called "dirmngr."


I ran a scan offline with the Hyper Scan and and Custom of all Hard Drives with Malwarebytes Premium. Everything came back fine. I also scanned with Webroot Seceure Complete, which I was told by both companies that there would be no conflict between the two programs. They both cam up negative, but this one process is bugging me and I'm not sure if it is safe.


It is under C:/Program Files (x86)/GNU/Gnupg/dirmngr.exe


I also used a site called Virustotal that was recommend in another forum post to scan files and it came back fine.


I have a coding program called "Kleopatra" installed for school classes. It looks like it might be connected to that program, but I'm not sure.


Is this safe process/file safe?


Thank you in advance!
