Process name: McAfee SpamKiller Agent

Product: McAfee SpamKiller

Support: Help link   Update link   Uninstall tool  

Company: McAfee (mcafee.com)

File: MSKAgent.exe

A background process from McAfee, the McAfee SpamKiller Agent runs constantly to detect incoming spam. When detected, it either deletes it or routes it to a spam folder. A robust spam filter, SpamKiller is highly effective at eliminating spam. It is notable for a high rate of false positives, however. This problem is mitigated by developing white lists of "safe" addresses and content. Based in Santa Clara, California, McAfee was founded in 1987.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/mskagent.exe.html
