I did not have an issue but my 3rd party antivirus-firewall notified me as to it being a whitelisted program.

Not much information on the said prossess when searching for it.

This is the only pc running or able to update to 1709 64x pro and not have issues running it.

Both of my other two pc's have had issue with the update being highly erratic system wide or not able to install it

at all.

I have now but both of these p'cs on the 1703 and current branch for business until a fix is in place in the future if any.

Way to avoid the question that was asked. What is it? what does it do?

WaaSMedic.exe is a file that is part of Microsoft Windows Operating System process designed by Microsoft Corporation. does not answer either of those questions!  This is why I don't trust Microsoft!

If it were not for bullguard notifying me of the prossess taking place I would not have known it even existed as I configured the option to notify of all prossess.

This is not the first time a question has gone a different in a different  direction and half expected it.

Going to dig a little deeper when I have time to get a more solid answer.

Still didn't explain what it does and why it might be being picked up by some AV programs (admittedly probably falsely).  Just answer a simple question for once Microsoft :/

John Fue and Stephanie Sal,

Your company should fire you out as most incompetent worker of the day.

Your reply is classic example why people don't trust your company, you preserve this.

You are lowering income of your company by giving such answers to customers who pays for your product.

This is easy way to kill your NPS with retail customers.

With no Regards.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and offer a possible answer, WAAS in networking terms is generally applied to Wide Area Application Services and specifically for WAN Optimization and Acceleration. I am guessing Microsoft has a WAN Optimization/Acceleration Service for downloading updates. I suspect from the name and this is just a guess, that waasmedic is a service to fix the acceleration engine and it periodically wakes up to check to see if anything needs to be fixed before going back to sleep.
