A few days ago I restarted my computer and a new process called Terranium updater setup started running immediately after the restart. It hangs halfway through the update and never finishes. The process associated with this is messenger.exe in the C drive,
a 92kb application.
A couple of issues:
1) What in the world is Terranium? I didn't install this or install any new software on my computer. No shady links, etc. All virus scanners (this might sound silly but seeing as how I didn't put this on my computer on purpose nor can I uninstall it) show
2) Why won't it finish? It hangs just under 50% of the update bar. I have to force quit the process after quite some time just to make it go away.
The window is just a little gray box, says "Terranium updater Setup: Installing". There is a little icon that looks like a lock or timer of some sort, half of it is light gray and the other half is dark gray.
I've tried Googling to see what this is or if anyone else has any issues but have come up with nothing. I called a friend who works for a large corporation IT and all he can do is confirm that it's a "safe" application, something to do with .Net Framework
but has no answers as to why it's there or how to make it finish or go away.
