    Weird process running in Task Manager

    A weird process named AM_Delta_Patch_1.163.487.0 was running in Task Manager.

    Is it malware or what, I can't find any information on it.

    Let me google that for you

    Seems to be MSE and nothing to worry about. You could have a look at the exe, right click and look at the signatures tab on properties to see if it is signed by microsoft.

    If you download some utility like this HashTab tool to quickly find file hash information you can check the SHA and see if it is correct and not an imposter if you are still worried.

    hope this helps

Task manager starts a process not an application
I have created a task in Task Scheduler to run an application I wrote in VB.Net. The problem is that it loads it as a process, not as an application, so it does not actually run. How do I get this application to run using Task Manager? It worked fine under Windows 7. Thanks, Marty
