Windows 10: Windows 10 Hidden Unknown Background Process

    Windows 10 Hidden Unknown Background Process


    Hello, I have what I believe to be a problem. On all my Windows 10 machines I have discovered a Hidden Unknown Background Process running at all times. This Unknown Process is not visible in the normal task manager, it's only visible in third party tools like cports and other networking tools. Dose any one know what this is, or if it's a problem or not. Sometimes the Unknown Process will launch many other Unknown Processes making windows 10 slow to react. Below is a list of hosts the Unknown Process is sending requests back and forth to.

    Not everything in the list below was coming from this Unknown Process but a lot of it was, I just copied out my block list from my host file and posted it, so some of the list may have been coming from other possesses but most of them are from this Unknown Background application in windows 10.

    I would like to add that I can't find this application at this time on my machine. I also can't kill it and when it's tampered with it seem to go into a protection mode and go's dormant for some time and then relaunches it's self.
