Datei hat sich unbemerkt und unerwünscht eingeloogt.
Wenn sie ein Kaspersky haben, und ein dmwu.exe auftritt, sollten sie schnellstens den Prozess von dmwu.exe beenden, da Kaspersky denkt, dass es sich um einen Schädling handelt. Dadurch verbraucht Kaspersky bis zu 99.9% der CPU-Auslastung. Beenden sie Kaspersky und dmwu.exe. Dann öffnen sie Kaspersky wieder und aktivieren den Schutz wieder. Jetz sollte ihr PC wieder schnell laufen.
