How to find what software unsecapp.exe is used by

vbimport

#1

Unsecapp.exe runs from startup on my Vista desktop.
It is detected by “End It All” & the Windows Task Manager.

I’ve tried to figure out what is using it but no luck so far.

I tried disabling every program that is in msconfig Startup.
(unsecapp.exe is not in the msconfig StartUp).
That didn’t do it.
I tried disabling some services temporarily & that didn’t stop it .

Here’s another thing that puzzles me about this;
I logged onto the full Administrator account the on that has to be set up in the registry to access. In it unsecapp.exe is not running .

I’ve Googled it & tried several “solutions” but nothing has worked.
It may even need to be running for some software to work.
I would just like to figure out what that software is.

Can you check it’s properties to see if it’s a signed M$ file?
THIS description makes sense…
I suggest to try Sysinternal’s Process Explorer or Process Hacker to find out more…:slight_smile:

The file is where it is supposed to be & the properties/Details say it’s Microsoft.
If it has a certificate it is somewhere else but I believe it is a legitimate MS file.
It may even need to be started. I had read several definitions of what it does & the link you posted is as good as any I’ve read. I may have used compatibility of some software & that is why it starts . I just can’t figure why it starts like it is in the Start up programs in msconfig . I try to keep those to a minimum.
I already have Sysinternals Process Explorer . I’ve never learned to use it very well.
So I may have to spend some time learning to use it.
I haven’t tried Process Hacker.

Maybe you can find it in a Microsoft–>Windows submap of task scheduler…

I will take a look as soon as I Google submaps for Task Scheduler.
Thanks for the suggestion.
