    Windows Update Always Running? msunet.exe - PLEASE HALP!


    Hi Guys,

    I'm a little nervous about this one. I haven't seen this running every day ever since November 4th.

    Now it seems to be running with every start. I Googled it and could not find anything useful.

    I would think it's Windows update running every day I just never seen it running every day and never goes away.

    It's located here : C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\msunet.exe

    Is this normal?

    Also when I delete the entry on start up it keeps coming back.

    I'm on Windows 8.1 (64 bit)

    - Thanks in Advance -

    It was a Trojan bugger!
