Sppextcomobjpatcher.exe is a Windows 10 process involved in the registry key that you used to activate your copy of Windows. It is not malicious software, so if you see it running in Task Manager, you should not necessarily panic that your system has been infected. But if it shows up in an antimalware scan from a tool like Malwarebytes Antimalware, it may warrant further investigation.

That said, sppextcomobhpatcher.exe is most commonly used by hacked or hacked versions of Windows to bypass Microsoft’s licensing system. It is possible that if you find it, it means that your version of Windows is pirated. If you weren’t responsible for installing Windows on your system, you might consider purchasing and registering a legitimate copy.

Lifewire does not condone the use of pirated software and recommends that you update your Windows installation to a legitimate installation. You may be missing important updates or security patches that could protect your system.

If you’re using a legitimate copy of Windows, you’re unlikely to encounter sppextcomobjpatcher, but if you do, it might be worth removing as it’s often associated with pirated software. You can do this by running an anti-malware scan (it will almost always be detected as a keylogger) or by removing it manually. It is usually found in one of these places:

C:\Windows\Setup\Scripts\Win32\sppextcomobjpatcher

either

C:\Windows\Setup\Scripts\x64\sppExtComObjPatcher

You can safely delete this file without harming your system. However, if you are running a pirated version of Windows, you may be notified as such when you reboot your system.

If you are deliberately using a pirated version of Windows, you do not need to remove sppextcomobjpatcher from Windows 10. It will not affect your daily system operation.

That said, you do run the risk of running a pirated version of Windows. The antivirus detects sppextcomobjpatcher as it is a potential malware intrusion point that may have been used to infect your system during installation.
