I keep getting a message from Windows that a program jucheck.exe is trying to connect to the internet. The message shows the publisher of the program as 'Unknown'. Is it a Virus? How to remove this?
Juscheck.exe and Jusched.exe are Java processes that schedule updates. They can be given access to the internet. If you're still unsure, run a full system scan with your virusscanner. Usually these processes are harmless.
You may use the website VirusTotal to upload and test any suspicious executable.
This site will verify the file using (at the moment) 39 anti-virus engines.
If that many anti-virus products vote for this file as not infected, there's an excellent chance that it's really not a virus.
The path to find the file on a 64 bit Windows 7 computer is as follows:
don't forget to go to folder options and uncheck hide computer hard disk files and check show hidden files. Once done you can restore folder options back to default.
