This popup started this morning and I want to get rid of it. Yesterday , before downloading the free version of "advancedsystemcare4" [recommended by your free book, for which much thanks, it is very informative] I did a full scan with fully updated Microsoft essentials and malware bytes anti malware and they found nothing . I scanned the set up file for "advancedsystemcare4" with both programmes before installation. I then ran the quick check with all defaults.
I clicked over the popup which I thought was part of "advancedsystemcare4" , and a screen was opened with the title MS Webcheck Monitor, and I saw that my screen was captured by this "program" (something like a printscreen). I cannot get rid of the program or close it but I can close the window. A small window has also appeared [and then disappeared] in the corner of the desk top which showed my resource usage. I do not know if that is relevant.
A web discussion of a program of this name in 2005 [on http://www.pcguide.com
"Well, in conclusion, FINALLY, I've DELETED the program called HPTSKMGR.EXE, and the popup has never re-appeared"
I searched in programs and failed to find *TSKMGR.EXE,
I have no program either called webcheck [or anything similar] or with a name containing TSKMGR, according to MS list of programmes to uninstal or revo uninstaller
Would the pop up go away if I go back to a system restore point created shortly before installing "advancedsystemcare4"?
