    According to Sysinternal's Process Explorer, cpf.exe is running as a "packed image". Does anyone know what this is and are there any benefits to running this process type?

    My Process Explorer shows probably packed.
    Packed means it is like zip file, to use less space on disk and recover its full length when executed.

    packed means in this case: protected from tempering. the better it is packed the less chance malware get to end/finish the process.

    Security Programs should be packed and encrypted, always. call it self defense.

    Good news. Thank you! I was a little concerned it may be a little more vulnerable to attacks.
