    windows 8.1 is executing winsat.exe automatically


    windows 8.1 is executing winsat.exe automatically even though its disabled in task scheduler. When Checking event viewer security logs it tells me someone logged into my computer even though I was already logged in but idle and executed winsat.exe. Is this normal or is someone logging into my computer remotely? I have multiple logins and special logins in my Log and logoffs when i did not logoff.
