I have a process running wlanext.exe which is hogging up cpu. I did a bit of digging and found the location of this file isnt in system32 as well as the file hash doesn't match but I have scanned it with malwarebytes and superanti spyware both of which were unable to find it I also cant end the process or remove it. Help?
Well I know its not a regular process due to the fact I have 2 Wlanext.exe with one location at C:\Windows\wmu3 and the other at C:\Windows\System32. They dont even share the same icon or file hashes
"Important: Some malware disguises itself as wlanext.exe, particularly when not located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. Therefore, you should check the wlanext.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

It instantly restarts, I actually started the system32 wlanext and they were both running I could end the system32 version and it wouldnt start back up. Also I have 0 Wireless capabilities on this desktop if that has any bearings.
