Purpose of ielowutil.exe:
File purpose and description:
Ielowutil.exe is an executable program file that most likely arrived as preinstalled software on your pc if you are running Windows Vista or later. This file would not appear on Windows XP systems. Always check the exact file location to verify it is not virus or adware related, as often spyware and virus writers use similiar names and just locate their files in different folders. This Ielowutil.exe program is part of your Internet Explorer browser from Microsoft. You will often see this in your computer's task list. This file is considered safe and is not virus or spyware related. (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.
File or folder location:

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, ielowutil.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 ielowutil.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
