This inconvenient, kill the active process, can't access on internet and not workly to connect to every host. To connect on internet again, please reboot this Windows Operating System.

I've terminated this process for good long time ago and my OS is working perfectly. How do you think, do I have an internet connectivity?? Of course :) Those last two opinions are OK when your OS is running firewall application and then you will terminate this process. I have hardware firewall.

While this file may be used by legitimate software. This fact is not determinative of it's security risk. Malware can take on the name of any legitimate file. Therefore, the only means of telling if it is malware related is to determine what folder the file is located and running from. This applies to any file.
