What are all the services and what do they do. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everytime Microsoft sends a new update or fix another service is created.  For instance what is mdmcls32.exe by Puresight,  this evidently this is not a Microsoft written piece of code yet it showed up after a recent update.  There are several other examples of these kind of unknow tasks.

  • Hi Dave,

    Thanks for posting in TechNet forum.

    Do you install the CA security suite on your computer? The mdmcls32.exe was found and discussed here: http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f112/users-of-ca-security-suite-information-required-on-unknown-processes-185236.html. It's also possibly created by some virus or malware.

    In this case, if you installed CA security suite, I suggest you temporarily uninstall it, and use Microsoft Security Essentials fully scan your computer.

    In addition, for information about Security updates, visit the Microsoft Virus Solution and Security Center for resources and tools to keep your PC safe and healthy. If you are having issues with installing the update itself, visit Support for Microsoft Update for resources and tools to keep your PC updated with the latest updates.

  • Hello, based on internet searches, I found that it is used for internet traffic filtering.

    For more information: http://file.net/process/mdmcls32.exe.html

    Which update have installed so that it had appeared?

    I suspect that this is a possible malware program. Please perform a malware program scan to check that it is not a malware program.
