Program Guard: {4E425C09-2305-49D7-A1A9-7B9B71417BF4}.exe

Recommended Posts

In History I see Program Guard: {4E425C09-2305-49D7-A1A9-7B9B71417BF4}.exe is trusted but I don't recognize the file and it seems suspicious.  Please advise.

It's in a temp folder, and there's no information on the file in a Google search. Could you upload the file to VirusTotal and then post the link to the analysis? That way I can get some more information about it.

Hello Jim,

 

Are you using Avast! AV?
I'm asking because lately Avast creates that sort of executables with random names in different locations - don't ask me why: they said they are "emergency updates"...

In that case the best recourse will also be to exclude AVAST exe folder in the OA >>options>> exclusions for some of the legitimate updates of AVAST in its own folder and prevent OA alerting for each update..

No sir, not to my knowledge.

I cannot locate the file.

I cannot locate the file.

 

I click on the Windows icon in the lower left corner of my computer screen and enter the file name as well as parts of the file name and it brings back zero results.  How can I best verify the presence of the file and its location?
