Wenn von BeamYourScreen GmbH, dann ist die Software nicht "unbekannt", sondern lautet "Mikogo" oder "BeamYourScreen" (Identische Software unter 2 Namen vertrieben). Dies ist ein tool zur Erstellung und Teilnahme von privaten oder kommerziellen online-Desktop-Sharing-Sitzungen. Die aufgerezeichneten Eingaben werden im Zuge der Sitzungen übermittet. Das M4-Service.exe immer läuft ist nicht notwendig, aber lässt sich scheinbar nicht verhindern.

Best practices for resolving M4-Service issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with M4-Service. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the M4-Service.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
