What is unsecapp.exe doing on my computer?
Unsecapp.exe is a part of Windows so it was most probably already on your computer or laptop when you first purchased it. To be a bit more specific, it actually contributes to the WMI provider interface structure to receive call-backs for client applications which are running different processes.
The WMI, or Windows Management Instrumentation is used to allow software programs interact with computer user accounts, services within Windows, other already running programs, and other parts of the Windows Operating System. This is why Unsecapp.exe appears in your Task Manager when you start up your computer, or as soon as a program on your computer needs to use WMI.
As already mentioned, unsecapp.exe should be considered both safe and required. But please be aware that a virus or spyware may use a very similar process name to trick you in thinking that it is safe. Unsecapp.exe is usually located in
so if you find it within a different folder on your computer, it may be an unwanted process, namely spyware, malware or a virus.
Non-system processes like unsecapp.exe originate from software you installed on your system. Since most applications store data in your system's registry, it is likely that over time your registry suffers fragmentation and accumulates invalid entries which can affect your PC's performance. It is recommended that you check your registry to identify slowdown issues.
