Windows 10: Started to get random cmd.exe popups with no specifics.

  1.    12 Dec 2016 #1

    Started to get random cmd.exe popups with no specifics.

    I've recently started to get cmd.exe popups every hour, or atleast thats how long it feels before it pops up again. I have searched but it seems to be something different and wasn't sure how to approach the problem. Here is an image after recording for about an hour trying to see what it was.

    I've seen people with the same problems but with something like bitsadmin, or ipconfig. While mines just say cmd.exe. I've already did scans like Malwarebytes, Adwarecleaner, Junkware Removal tool, Hitman, rkill and it still persists.

    Any ideas?

    Use the free Nirsoft tool TaskSchedulerView.exe, and search scheduled tasks for BAT and CMD. Chances are very high that some kind of scheduled task is behind the appearance of the command windows on your desktop. I had something similar happen earlier this year with a driver scanner tool called "Driver Update."
