External information from Paul Collins:
There are different files with the same name:

  • "Enumerate Service" definitely not required. Added by the MANIFEST TROJAN!
  • "WINDLL" can run at start up. STARR key logger. "It logs almost everything that goes through the box. It logs all key strokes, all passwords transacted even if they weren't keyed in, all web sites visited, every program launched including the path to that program, and more"

Important: Some malware also uses the file name Wsys.exe, for example potentially unwanted program Starr (detected by McAfee), and Spyware_KEYL_SontrexSoftware (detected by TrendMicro). Therefore, you should check the Wsys.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

Sie gehört zum Internet-Monitoring-Programm Starr. Das Programm protokolliert jeden Tastenanschlag und sämtliche Aktivitäten des besagten Rechners icl. Surfverhalten (besuchte Seiten,Passwörter etc.). Die gesammelten Daten können abgerufen oder unbemerkt als Email an einen anderen Rechner weitergegeben werden. -Big Brother is watching you ! :-)

die wsys.exe stellt sofern sie wissentlich vom pcbesitzer installliert wurde keine gefahr dar. wird gerne von netzweradmins in firmen genutzt. dann offiziell mit warnmeldung bei der anmeldung. oder auch nicht;) wenn das also DEIN pc ist und DU nicht´s davon weißt dann doch ehr gefährlich

As touched on already wsys.exe is placed on your computer as part of the Starr Key Logger. I installed this program as I like a keylogger running as back up should a power cut or computer freeze cause me to lose recent unsaved typing.

Hatte seit 8.11.13 Probleme beim Hochfahren von Windiws 7. Das Betriebssystem selbst war innerhalb von 40 Sec. da. Dann aber stockte die Weiterarbeit um genau 75 Sec. Dann erst erfaolgte die Verbindung ins Internet und dal Laden von Kaspersky. Ein nicht akzeptabler Ladevorgang. In der Sytemsteuerung/Programme und Funktionen stieß ich auf die Datei WSYS, die ich nicht wissentlich geladen hatte, und die genau am 8.11.2013 ins System kam. Nach den Rechechen bei file.net habe ich Wsys gelöscht. Seitdem läuft das Hochfahren wieder einwandfrei!! Interessant wäre hier, was hat Wsys in den 75 Sec. gemacht? Guido
