Hey everyone.


I found three wuauclt.exe files in different locations, should i be worried about? cause i read on many different sites that this has a high chance to be malware/virus or a trojan etc. if its not located in C:\Windows\System32.
MSE couldn't find any threats but im still worried a little bit because my pc is behaving strange from time to time (actually i had to try five times before i finally managed it to post here...).
I use Windows 10 Pro and two of them are located in C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64... subfolder (one has a size of 12 bytes and the other one has 25,8kb)
and the other one is located in C:\Wndows\System32 and has a filesize of 25,8kb.
Are there any known issues with that file?

thanks in advance.


ps: this is my first post here so i want to say hello to the community - hello.
pps: sorry if this isn't the right Forum.
