Is pcs.exe safe or is this task spyware?



Purpose of pcs.exe:









File purpose and description:

Pcs.exe is a program file that would have been installed by yourself and would not have arrived on your pc any other way. This file is actually part of a parental monitoring or system monitoring trial software named PC Spy. PC Spy must be installed by someone, it can "not" actually arrive on your computer via hidden installs or anything like that (as spyware and adware programs do), as this software is designed to let the computer owner monitor his/her computer. This file is considered safe as it does not send data over the internet and does not affect your system performance. However if this is installed on your computer then someone that shares your computer with you has actually installed it. Also be aware that you do not confuse this with other pc spy programs, as many similiar programs use this same program name or a similiar title in attempts to fool you into thinking it is their program. To uninstall, it has an uninstall button on the main window, just run pcs.exe and click the uninstall button. For more information on this, visit the softdd.com page. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

General information:
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, pcs.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 pcs.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.
