Understanding Qoobox, dwm.exe and svchost.exe

(If you believe this thread has been posted in the wrong category, please notify the author).

Microsoft Windows Vista (6.0) Home Basic Edition Service Pack 1 (Build 6001)
32-bit Operating System

Hellos again peoples,

May I just ask the origins of some processes and folders? What is the folder Qoobox found in C:\, I think it is related to ComboFix. What are the processes dwm.exe and svchost.exe? For the later one, there seems to be around thirteen processes running with that name being used by the Local Service, System and Network Service. Note that dwm.exe is being run by me.

Thanks for answering my question guys.

DWM.EXE

SVCHOST.EXE

Qoobox is a folder created by Combofix to store quarentined files. Nothing to worry about and can be gotten rid of if you dont use combofix anymore.
