*#1, *#2, One of those #' ed scenarios below could be a reason why out of nowhere I just recently noticed the name IAStore or some version of IAStore. 2 or 3 months ago, I think, in the Action Center is where I will see it. I saw the name IAStore only after for the First Time I Saw "Intel Rapid Storage Technology". That 2 -3 months was also the First Time I ever saw that also (In Action Center). I'm not sure the reason why I did just started to see those two names. #1: Maybe because I Downloaded Intel Rapid Technology from somewhere (HP maybe while looking for Drivers & Software) or because something Downloaded it for some unknown reason? At the same time, the message: In my Action Center on my Windows 10 Laptop is where it states: *#2: Intel Rapid Storage Technology-One or more volumes are protected from a disk failure. Which is a notification in my Action Center. It's also the name of an app in Start that definitely was not there months ago. That notification showed up when an HP tech told me I need a 10 Recovery, which I'm finally doing with the tech tomorrow months later, due to illness. Hopefully, that notification is real and not a created notification or a real problem created by 1 of the 2 of those mentioned above.
I think that IAStore might have been secretly installed on my Laptop when my HP Support Assistant stopped opening & working & I went on an Intel website & downloaded some kind of an Intel Driver search and download program. I didn't get either of those for like the 1st 6 months of the 10 months I've owned this HP Laptop which I purchased Brand New. 1 more thing. Why would a company like Intel put Malware etcetera on my PC? PS: Tonight I "ran" that Intel Rapid Storage Technology to look for problems for the first time because I didn't know it was a runnable program before & it found 10 problems in one area & 10 problems on another area of the PC then I tried for about an hour to follow their directions to remove the 20 problems & had no luck. Could not figure out!
