True enough, but then malware can be called anything, especially a legitimate process in order to cause maximum confusion.

If you have an Easy Access keyboard, however, then this is likely to be a required process ... likely but not certainly.

If in doubt run your anti-spyware stuff and see what it finds.

If you don`t have any, then download, install, update and run MBAM:

On second thoughts ... run MBAM anyway. I don`t like the sound of "There are loads of things running in task manager" ....
