    Unknown Services (windows 7)

    Right there is this one windows service in windows 7 that is driving me insane. All you see for a split second is this icon... Then you see it once every 65 seconds. When you click on it, it doesn’t respond.

    Now I killed every known services and a few unknown ones that wouldn’t crash the OS and it still pop’s up. Any idea what it is?

    Just to add I did do a full virus scan AND spyware scan system is clean.

    Type run Msconfig in start menu and check for a printer or camera that is set to auto-start and stop it there. Or you can download advanced system care and use the program to stop it.

    update,

    I stopped disabled every known service and printer service started a systematic uninstall of software and in the end couldn't find the source. So I did what we do when we cannot figure something out... Format reinstall... problem solved... the cause I think can be from a website actually... I remember seeing strange activity on my computer a while back when family was in town. So I guess they clicked on something and I got my system infected with something.
