What is wlidsvc.exe?

As I turned on my computer and went to the internet an anti-virus pop-up appeared telling me to install it.

    First, there is a warning out there about that process.

    If you don't use Windows Messenger Services, you do not need it.  It is Windows Lie ID services but it is becoming obsolete because of newer offerings like Office 365.  Note that IF you are playing certain Windows LIVE games, you DO need it.

    lies! do not trust such popups.

    you probably mistyped the website address. check the address bar to see what web address loaded.

    if you close 5he browser and open again and it does it again, then you need to change your homepage...
