crashpad_handler.exe
« on: February 03, 2023, 09:53:21 PM »
Hello,
Can anyone tell me if crashpad_handler.exe is a malicious program? It shows up in my Windows 10 running processes.  Thank you for any help you can give me.

Try this https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=crashpad_handler.exe - many hits, this is the first https://www.file.net/process/crashpad_handler.exe.html

Of course there is also this - https://windowsbulletin.com/files/exe/google-inc/google-earth-vr/crashpad-handler-exe - this reports it as part of Google Earth VR.  But that doesn't mean this is a legit file and not one named to confuse.  But if so it should be digitally signed by google.
