    What is sso-pop_user on the credential section of the computer?

    I discovered this today. I'd like to know what it does and if it provides a security risk. I am guessing it does but couldn't find any real info on Google. Rather mysterious at least to me.

    I've had security issues like $5000 in fraudulent credit card charges so I'm understandably somewhat paranoid. Let a 20 year old friend use my computer and he had porno sites so I'm getting that crap. Also phony phone calls offering me government grants. Used CC Cleaner to wipe the computer and hope that takes care of it.

    In any event I am wondering whether I should remove the above, there is an option to do it.

    thanks for any interest or help

    its a generic authentication process tied to the use of 'Windows Live Essentials' utilities. You can remove it but it will re-appear if you use Windows Live products. If you do not store Web or Windows credentials on your machine you could disable 'Credential Manager' in 'Services'. If you go to Start and type services.msc, then Enter, then navigate to 'Credential Manager', right click on that entry, choose properties, then click 'Stop', then click on 'Startup type' drop down menu and choose 'Disabled', click Apply and OK.

    lets just check your pc

    Please download and save FRST 64bit or FRST 32 bit to your Desktop.



    Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

    Make sure that Addition option is checked.
    Press Scan button.
    It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
    Please copy and paste log back .
    The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe).
