When looking back at some old notes, I came across wudf. I think it had something to do with the attack on my computer
The path was C:\windows\system32\wudfhost.exe. user name LOCAL SERVICE. I think this was from January 2010. My notes were not very specific, but I do remember I was having some major problems with my hacker at that time. It may be an old issue, but those can also be the slippery ones. I hope this helps somebody. The real Ron
PS I don't have access to that computer
This is from my phone.

Hi surfactant55;

I'm not 100% sure what kind of help you're asking for.

I found a thread on another forum that helps explain / resolve problems with this. http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-3375528.ph...

Thanks for checking in, Fred. After getting more info, and thinking a lot, I believe my intruder used a hidden pathway and his devious hacker skills to gain the highest administrative priveledges to gain control of my machine. (Sounds kinda paranoid, doesn't it?) Anyone else encounter this executable? Have any theories or confirmed updates? Curious.

as far as I can see it is ...

(unknown source)
WUDFHost.exe - This process is for the user mode of the Windows driver host foundation. It is a windows Driver Foundation which defines a single driver model that suports the creation of object-oriented event-driven drivers for kernel mode or user mode.
wudfhost.exe is an essential part of Windows and required for Windows to work properly. It should never be disabled

... by all means seek a second opinion. ;)
