Die wf2k.exe Datei ist nur für das Programm Winfox 2.0 maßgebend, damit dieses Programm voll funktiosfähig ist. Sollte man mal die Dienste einmal nicht benötigen, kann man mit der rechten Maustaste unte in der Taskleiste ganz rechts auf das Winfox Icon klicken und dann auf *Deinstallieren / Beenden klicken. Dadurch wird die Datei wf2k.exe beendet.

Best practices for resolving wf2k issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with wf2k. 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.
