I was restarting a service and happened to notice that I had one service running that had no description. This struck me as curious. It's called "Session Detection" and is located at c:\windows\system32\drivers\SessionService.exe. I checked the file properties and it has no details; no publisher, no product name, etc. I did some googling and didn't find anything negative, but I also didn't find anything reassuring (like I would expect for a typical Windows service). This, coupled with no description, had me a bit concerned. I uploaded the file to VirusTotal and it shows it's clean and distributed by MS. I also installed and ran Malwarebytes. Clean.

So I guess my real question is what does this service do? Why doesn't it have a description like every other Windows service?
