cpx.exe look very suspicious. Symantec is detecting cpx.exe as "Backdoor.Trojan".

Found CPX Related to Cannon Printer files. Also found a CPX folder separate. I deleted this since I suspect things separate and loaded in recent date not related to install of original files. Iobit malware logged it as a problem

I suspect it is the picture helper adn application for the printer that continually checks for content and preps printing from web pages. So while it is a pest it has a purpose. Final note when malware is installed it often uses a common name for its files and hides in familiar folder names. Just check the dates to be sure it may be suspect.

I ran and used Malware Bytes to remove "cpx.exe". It had multiple processes under Task Manager. I noticed it because it had a volume option for my Speakers and thought that it was strange.
