Hi and welcome to Geekstogo :)

I can tell you what it is :)

tcpsvcs.exe is a part of Microsoft Windows networking components. This essential system process is initiated when the computer uses special TCP/IP networking services such as DHCP, Simple TCP and print services. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.


What folder is it in?

Just to pipe in a little more info. tcpsvcs.exe can also be exploited by the backdoor.egghead trojan. Check out this site for more detailed information.

You might want to take a stroll down to the malware forum and let an expert take a look at your HJT log.

From my research, I have discovered that tcpsvcs.exe will run in the background and use up 90-100% cpu usage when ipv6 is installed. To uninstall it, go to STARt-->RUN and type cmd. In the window that appears, type ipv6 uninstall. Reboot your computer and the file should no longer appear in task manager's processes tab.

* EDIT -- Fenor takes the hand off and he could..........go.........all...........the............way............TOUCHDOWN!!!!! :tazz: :) :) *
