    Unknown .exe?


    I was browsing my Task Manager for suspicous processes and I stumbled along one called 'WinStore.Mobile.exe'. Is this usual? I will post a Word Doc which includes screenshots.

    Hi, there's no such file on my PC.. perhaps it's related to a store app you've installed.

    You've probably found a few other references to it on the internet, so it has been encountered by some.

    Try rt clicking on it (viewed in task manager) and inspect the properties.

    Scan it on VirusTotal - Free Online Virus, Malware and URL Scanner and see what VirusTotal says.

    It may be a leftover from an insider build as that's a context in which it's reported, or possibly Win 8 if you upgraded from that. Definitely nothing like it on my Win 10 x64.

    It might help if you'd post a screenshot of the properties. Thanks.

    The properties are in the uploaded document in the first post, but I would understand in nobody downloads it.
    I've just added them to my post
