Hello everyone, I am having an issue with windows 10, specifically cmd.exe. It randomly opens for about a second, and then closes. This seems like malware to me and I did have a bad torrent on my pc recently, but I scanned with malwarebytes and avira and they dont pickup anything anymore. I got a screenshot of what cmd says: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/214578784123224064/219357125829328896/unknown.png is there anything I can do to get rid of this?

like rgd said, there are a couple scheduled tasks that want to run, but are failing, due to some changes in the way that Windows works.
if it is malware, it is not succeeding in running.
if it is some kind of backup task or something like that, which you or a program you use has set up to run on a regular basis, you will have to recreate those tasks, and delete the old ones.
probably it is nothing you have to worry about so much, Windows will eventually give you a notification if something important keeps failing to run, and you will notice yourself if a program you use doesn't work right.

SanDisk SSD Dashboard software does it to me, not Microsoft or malware of any kind... Open Scheduled Task as soon as it happens, and see what just ran. Simple.
