What does C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton Internet Security\Engine\20.4.0.40\WSCStub.exe do?

Hello,

I got a query from my computer whether I want this program to run. Can someone, please, explain what it does?

Regards,

Hi bostjanv,

 

You need to uninstall your Norton product using Norton Remove & Reinstall tool.

Hi bostjanv,

 

Bombastus provided an excellent answer in this post . 

 

Although not solved in that thread the usual corrective action if there is a problem with the Activity Center and Norton talking t each other, is the WMIUTILS.DLL fix referenced by intesec.

 

At this point there is no need to run the remove and reinstall tool.

 

Let us know how things go.
