    @Gandalf – Do the dimhost.exe entries all have the same qualified path?  And on a similar theme, are they all called in the same way?  This is important, as VS doesn’t just rely on the exe name.

     

    @Mr.GumP – How long have you had those 13 items?  If they haven’t been pinged for antisocial behaviour before, they’re probably safe.

    However, I strenuously suggest the use of a reputable firewall set to default deny all outbound, so you can make sure your softs are only talking to permitted people.  I use and recommend Windows Firewall, and Windows Firewall Control by https://www.binisoft.org/wfc which will automatically rework Microsoft’s Stupidity Settings plus it’s FREE from MalwareBytes.

    Windows Firewall is shipped as part of Windows…
