    This file is part of Microsoft Windows Operating System. WerFaultSecure.exe is developed by Microsoft Corporation. It’s a system and hidden file. WerFaultSecure.exe is usually located in the %SYSTEM% folder.
    This process is safe and disabling it can be dangerous, because programs on your computer need it to work correctly.

    Thank you...

    As your location is germany... do you have any news what happened with GMX? How can I find out if my e-mail Password was also hacked, when someone stole those 300.000. I am having problems, I can get in thróugh Thinderbird, but not over GMX webpage and the mail is working a bit unregularly. ?

    It's the best to contact the GMX support directly.

    I have a problem with WerFaultSecure.exe. When I am copying data from one hard drive to another and it is taking longer than 10 minutes, over 1000 instances of WerFaultSecure.exe start in processes and just keep starting more and more when I cannot work anymore because computer becomes so laggy. I cannot kill this process or process tree either because it's so many of them.

    What can I do to resolve this problem? I only get this problem when I copy large quantities of data that take some time from one hard drive to another.
