File purpose and description:
Webcheck.dll is a program which was most likely arrived as preinstalled software on your computer. The actual folder location is also listed for you below, always verify where its located on your hard drive, as this makes sure it is not spyware or a virus simply placed elsewhere on your computer, and using the same name in an attempt to fool you.

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, webcheck.dll 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.
