Title: What causes these sporadic warning messages?
Post by: ggathagan on August 05, 2016, 08:46:10 PM

When I leave work for the day, I leave my computer on turn off the monitors

Every once in a while, when I return to work the next day and turn on the monitors, I will be greeted with a message from Avast stating that I am "opening a file that may be potentially unsafe"
.
See the attached picture for an example.

The file mentioned in the warning is never the same file.
The "opened by" is always "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe
The file mentioned in the warning is never being opened.

I have no other anti-virus/scanning products running, not even Windows Defender.
