DFSVC.Exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day Folks,
    I know I'm being a little anal here.  But, I was checking my WLOC (2.0.2392.4) and was checking under what the Firewall was allowing, and noticed that it has allowed a program 'dfsvc.exe'.  This seems out of the ordinary for me, as all my other 'allowables' look okay.  What concerns me is that this is the only program that shows the .exe extension itself; but WLOC Anti-Virus says there isn't a problem anywhere on my system.
    That being said, I did a search on this process; and noted that this could possibly be a process that was added by a worm of some type; thus my reason for concern.  The only thing that has recently been added to my system is the Zune 2.1 update that recently came down from Microsoft.
    So should I be concerned about this or not.  Presently, I have blocked the process within the WLOC firewall until I get a response from one of you nice folks.
    Thanks in advance for the assistance.
    P.S.  The WLOC Team ROCKS !!!.....Version 2.0 is pretty awesome; can't wait for it to go 'live'.....:-)
