    Question about a System.exe


    I noticed today listed in "Startup" (in Task Manager) a System.exe that to be honest i am not sure if it was there before. I checked it and is located in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    I let me disable it, but no rename it or delete it. The file size is 0. I scanned the file with the antivirus and it came clean.

    Is this a normal file for Windows 10?



    Edit: i assigned it read and write privileges and it seems i can rename it now, but then i got this message:"The action can't be completed because the file is opened is open in clientmon.exe.

    Sounds like it's time to run Malwarebytes.
