|Hi, some of you may have noticed that I've been around a lot lately. Well, I've got a new question.|
I had Microsoft .NET framework installed for a CD-Burning program. However, I decided I no longer needed the program and uninstalled it. Recently, I uninstalled the .NET framework through the Add/Remove programs dialogue.
After doing so, I ran HijackThis as a check to be see what was running after the restart happened differently to its normal run, to have a logfile. I found two entries in the logfile that I would like some advice on.
O23 - Service: Java Quick Starter (JavaQuickStarterService) - Sun Microsystems, Inc. - C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jqs.exe
O23 - Service: Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 18.104.22.168 (WPFFontCache_v0400) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\WPF\WPFFontCache_v0400.exe (file missing)
Now, I know that O23 is the startup entries. However, I did not tell java to start up with the computer, although I did just update to the latest version. Is that a new part of the java service?
The more important one to me is the second entry - the Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache. It does not appear in previous HijackThis logs, this it the first instance of it, and I want to know if it is safe to have HijackThis "fix" it. I can tell it (obviously) went with the .NET framework that I removed, but as HijackThis is rather powerful I decided to ask for some advice before using it. If necessary, I can post the rest of that log or a new log on request.
Here's hoping for some ideas, thanks!
