MicTray64.exe Key Loging Securirty Issue

Product Name: HP ENVY 7m-u109dx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

I have a HP ENVY nootebook  in its C:\ Windows\System32  there is  "MicTray64.exe".   It is found that  HP laptops with this file log your key strokes.  I didn't see HP Envy notebooks in the list of HP Laptops affected, should I remove this file?

Not all versions of the Conexant driver record key strokes-even though all may have the MicTray64,exe. Check  C:\Users\Public\MicTray.log to see if you have records there.

Re: MicTray64.exe Key Loging Securirty Issue

Hi Cheryl:

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I don't see  MicTray.log in C:\Users\Public, but in articles regarding this I read that should this file not exist, it will instead pass the keystrokes to an API named OutputDebugString.  How could I check this is not happening?

 

In Device Manager  under Microphone Array (conexant ISST Audio) I have  Version 10.0.14393.0  for the driver.  Is there away to check if this is one of those suspected drivers?

 

 

thanks
