Belongs with Asus Motherboard Utility
TaskMgr was open; I scrunched Firefox screen to type in this file to search. Of all things, when the "no results" came back, it said Comcast search! Why? I have Comcast TV,internet and ph., so I hear a keylogger typing all the time, and I believe this is the file doing it because of the Comcast search thing.
on my ultrabook, never has security errors, avg flags file in c:\windows\syswow64\ dir.
