Computer Security & Viruses/virus?
I run Windows 7 for the last 3 years and recently notices in the STARTUP - APPLICATIONS - a new program - PREFRENCES with a little blue e icon similar to Internet Explored but not exactly.. I also noticed that CPU sometimes runs high 50% 60% or even higher - sometimes, so than I restart Windows. I tried to look this program PREFRENCES in the startup of CCleaner as well as Auslogic and it does not appear there...When I right click on it and Go to PROCESS, it always takes to IDRIVE TRAY, a legit program that back up my files. Why would they use PREFRENCES???
Could you please guide here. ?
Thank you, Gabe
The first thing I would do is go ahead and download Malwarebytes http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/
Install, update, and run a scan. If it comes back clean you may just need to do some tweaks to your machine. I cannot find any thing about any kind of "preferences" virus or malware. Go to http://www.blackviper.com
