A suspicious file C:\Program Files\Microsoft\taskeng.exe gets quarantined continuously.
Comodo Antivirus (signature version 11314) is quarantining a suspicious file (see screenshot) almost every second. It has now quarantined the file for over 6000 times.
I ran a full virus scan of the system but no results, Comodo AV does ask me whether I want to reboot to complete the scan but at this stage I’m too afraid that it might be a rootkit that wants to install itself during system reboot.
Also, when I look at msconfig.exe, the taskeng.exe is added to the startup entry (see screenshot).
Does CIS actually have protection against malicious entries to the startup table? Because whenever I disable those entries they automatically get added the next time I open msconfig.exe
I’ve also scanned with the latest Spybot S&D but it only found a tracking cookie in IE8 (which I almost never use anyway).
My OS is Win7 Ultimate x86.
If it’s safe to reboot I’ll try to scan my system in a linux liveCD environment using clamav and post back the results.
Thanks in advance,
