Should I be worried about "Find.exe"


Recommended Posts

My powers been out abit and I just boot my computer up again after the storm knocked it offline. I was closing programs from the task manager and what not when I saw something I never did before today. A process called "Find.exe".

I did a quick google search of it and while I dont know what it does exactly as no site could provide me with an actual description of what it does, it said it was completely harmless and was part of Windows. But it also said it would start from it's own folder, upon checking it looks like it's in my System32 folder. But only 1 of about 4 sites I looked at mentioned that as being an issue.

Im currently scanning my PC now to see if anything pops up, I havent really done any browsing on iffy sites and the only thing I've downloaded in the last few days was a game called Skyforge. So not sure if it's something to worry about.

Hello and :welcome: :


Power outages/spikes can wreak havoc on a system without a surge protector and reliable UPS (uninterruptible power supply).

This can include corruption of the Windows OS, as well as corruption of programs and data.


We don't really have enough information to know for sure what might be happening on your system.

The work needed to investigate and repair it is conducted in a special forum area reserved for that purpose, or at the help desk.

So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue.
