What is LiveDomainList.txt that is full of malware sites in Windows?

Recommended Posts

Windows/System32/MailContactsCalendarSync/livedomainlists.txt  (also the LiveDomainList.txt is in SysWow64 and WinSxS)

The LiveDomainList.txt file has a bunch of malware sites listed inside.

Do you happen to know what this folder and .txt file is doing on my Windows 10 machine?

The LiveDomainList.txt is being used by:  syncutil.dll which is not a signed file.

Thank You

Hello @djtmalta123

I don't specifically what the file is for and neither Google or Bing searches provide an authoritative answer. However, it is a valid file on Windows 10 and would appear to be used by programs such as Outlook, Skype, Teams, etc. - my guess is these are sites that Microsoft knows are bad and blocks Ads or data exchange with.

The computer logs indicate you have some policies set against your browsers and possibly other Windows settings. Normally don't want them set on a home computer.

Open your Webroot SecureAnywhere and update it and do a scan with it and it should hopefully come back clean.

The Event Logs do show some possible locking issues which might be due to Webroot SecureAnywhere - you might want to research those errors more to see if you can correct.

Though I cannot answer your question properly I do not believe there is any threat or issue posed by the LiveDomainList.txt file. All of my Windows 10 computers have this file too.
