conhost.exe


Recommended Posts

So I was looking at my startup programs on msconfig looking to see if I could turn some off to make my computer faster, and one of the programs was conhost.exe. I looked on the internet, and according to this site (http://www.bleepingc....exe-26261.html) as well as others, it's a malware. If it's located in system32, then it's a legitimate file, however, the malware version disguises itself as the legit one if it's located in appdata (which mine is).

Anyways, I've run Malwarebytes (full scan) and as well Microsoft Security Essentials...and nothing has come up. I also tried looking for the file according to it's location path, but I can't find it (I've made all the hidden files show).

Does anyone have any info on this? Am I just being insane in thinking the conhost is something bad? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post only DDS.txt directly into your reply.
