Pchooklaunch64.exe, Pchooklaunch32.exe

I do NOT want parental controls on my pc, is there any way of keeping pchooklaunch32 and pchooklaunch64 processes from spinning up? Once they are running they can not be stopped. I have turned off parental controls on both the windows 7 64 bit machine and the VM Ware emulator but the services stubornly persist!


  • Hi and welcome to our forums.

    The files pchooklauncher32.exe and pchooklaunch64.exe are legit processes of Bitdefender.

    One of its functions is with the Parental Control module and the Active Virus Control / Antivirus.

    It is used also in the malware analysis process to determine if a software has malware characteristics, even if we don't have a definition in the product for that file.

    Thank you.
