ca.exe file purpose and description:
Ca.exe is a program file which is a known firewall related program. The exact disk location is also shown below to verfiy it is not spyware, as many spyware programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. Always check the proper disk location of your programs if you are suspicious. This program is known by the name ETrust EZ Firewall. Firewall software protects your computer by blocking incoming and outgoing threats. Some firewall programs block only incoming threats, as does the original Windows firewall that was on XP. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)
Actual file or task name: (Note that you can view the entire list here)
This is an executable program.
Where is the file or folder located on my computer?
This file will be found on your disk drive at C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust EZ Armor\eTrust EZ Firewall\ca.exe
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, ca.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of ca.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
