What is unsecapp.exe?

9 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me what's "unsecapp.exe"? It auto-starts with Vista Home Premium. The file properties has this info: "Sink to receive asynchronous callbacks for WMI client application". Is it safe to terminate it? How do I disable it so that it won't auto-start?

I did Google for information but most provide scarce details. Does your system have it running as well?

I seem to recall having this runnng but it isn't anymore. It's not listed as the executable in either of the services so I'm not sure how/why it starts.

From Bobster's description, it sounds like it may start automatically if Windows notices there's an application with known compatibility problems running. Sort of a helper process to resolve these issues perhaps? And it may "disappear" if you don't run any such programs. I know Vista has a list of programs with known compatibility problems. Microsoft's own Visual Studio 2005 is among them. :p When you start such programs, you usually get a dialog box warning you about that though.

It's not registered as one of the Services. I saw the unsecapp.exe entry in Windows Task Manager under Processes tab. Not sure about the application compatibility problems but I don't have any 3rd party software running at Windows startup
