This indicates a very old edition of Serv-U, one that contains known vulnerabilities that can be exploited remotely from the Internet. The current version of Serv-U uses a tray icon application called "Serv-U-Tray.exe", not "ServUTray.exe". If you see this file, please plan to upgrade to version 11.2 or higher ASAP!

Best practices for resolving ServUTray issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ServUTray. 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 repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, 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 ServUTray.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.
