    Wondershare

    Hi
    I have found something on my computer that concerns me but I can't seem to find any real answers from Google.
    The file and folder is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Wondershare\WSHelper.exe.

    I noticed this file in Start-up on Task Manager.

    It looks as though it is part of Wondershare, whatever that is.

    I tried to uninstall it by using its uninstaller in the Wondershare folder but nothing happened.
    It is not listed in Revo Uninstaller or the Windows uninstaller.

    I have run Malwarebytes and Vipre antivirus but they did not find anything.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Probably not malicious, but part of Wondershare Studio (photo collage): What is "wshelper.exe" ?

    Is Wondershare Studio listed for uninstallation in Control Panel, Programs and features?

    Did you disable it in Task Manager Startup?

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply.
    It is not listed in Control Panel, programs and features.
    I have disabled it in Task Manager Start-up.

    Do you know what Wondershare actually is. The only thing I can think of is that a while ago I was trying out different PDF readers and this helper could have been left behind from the uninstall of one of them?

    The link I posted says it's a Photo Collage program for creating scrapbooks and collages with digital photos.
