Auf meinem Laptop erscheint in der Taskleiste erst temp2.exe zusammen mit temp1.exe danach verschwindet temp2.exe wieder. Aber es wird alle paar Sekunden auf das Diskettenlaufwerkzugegriffen bis ich temp1.exe aus der liste rauslösche. Auf meinem PC allerdings passiert gar nichts.
Habe das gleiche problem. Laut verschiedenen foren ist dies ein schädling. Der legt meine Internetleitung lahm und setzt die meine Rechnerauslastung auf 100%. Beim trennen der I-Net Verbindung kommt ein Schwerer Ausnahmefehler . Und die Auslastung geht zurück auf 0. Lässt sich also drauf vermuten das dieses temp2.exe nicht zu windows gehört. Bis jetzt sind alle Löschversuche gescheitert bis ich hier ein paar tips hier gelesen habe. Gebe Rückinfo obs geklappt hat. Gruss Andreas Regensburg

Best practices for resolving temp2 issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: Security Task Manager examines the active temp2 process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known anti-malware tool tells you if the temp2.exe on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. 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.
