HIPS Events: Terminate Process | Target: cis.exe

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read this post. I’m curious as to why various programs that are running on my machine are attempting the action “Terminate Process” on target “cis.exe”. It seems that when I attempt to end the process of a frozen CIS window using Task Manager other running applications get in on the attempt to terminate it. I opened a new application, Discord, just to see if it would also join in, and sure enough it shows up on the list.

Any ideas?
