Since installing e42F and the Windows update build 17134.169 I have been having computer issues (ie. 2 messages that PC ran into problem and needs to restart & collecting error info ...) Today, this dialogue box from Webroot is appearing:







Is this a Wilcom Task & should be allowed, or should this be blocked?

Pascale,

I don't think taskhostw.exe was from Wilcom.
I would suggest you take a look at this page:

Hi all,

I can confirm this is not a Wilcom related item. However, a member of our team did not that there has been a change in the latest Win 10 update which is causing false positives in AV software (including Windows own Defender).
