    I have a process I haven't seen before running in my tasks list now called herald.exe.

    Does anyone know about this? It worries me. I shut it down, but it activates when I restart. I can't find any service that matches it.

    Thanks for any info.

    You can upload the file to Virustotal but remember that the results will not tell you if the file is 100% clean or malware. There were cases where even > 30 AVs were mistaken and flagged a clean or corrupt file. In other cases, malicious files were not detected by any of the AVs at VT.

    Thanks much - I didn't know about that service. I'll give it a shot.
