Microsoft, please just tell people what this is and why they should allow it (or not). Why do you not tell people what you're doing in the background?

My Bitdefender AV also alerted me about access from this program to internet. I woud want to know why this program (waasmedic.exe) do that.
It is sad that there is no answer about this question. Is this a secret?
So, do we have to analyze the data exchange under this program ourselves?

But GDPR is comming. We can wait to 25 may 2018 :) Maybe the GDPR will change the situation.

Hi,

 

Windows Update includes tasks to repair itself, because it's a critical part of Windows.

 

WaaS stands for 'Windows as a Service' - that's how Windows 10 is different from earlier versions of Windows. Windows 10 is delivered as a service, while earlier versions were discrete products.

 

Medic is just slang for healing. A medic, as you probably know, is another term for a doctor.

 

WaasMedic is one of the utilities that try to repair Windows Update when it gets damaged.

 

Feel free to reply to this post for further assistance.

If waasmedic.exeworks then it suggests a problem with Windows Update. This is a useful answer for me.
Thank you for quick and more accurate information than before.
