I am running windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, unsecapp.exe is running during system start-up.

I can turn off the process in windows task manager. When I restart the computer unsecapp.exe returns. Msconfig does not show unsecapp.exe as a start-up option.

What is unsecapp.exe?  

Why did it suddenly add itself to my start-up?

Thank you,

Urban
