No. SysInspector logs are intended to be analyzed by advanced users and ESET staff with experience with analyzing malware when it comes to analyzing particular suspicious files.

What is calluxxprovider.vbs:


calluxxprovider.vbs is used when using Server Manager to collect performance data on servers.This is activated in Server manager, select server, right-click and select "Start Performance Counters". This will create a data collector set on that server, user defined called "Server Manager Performance Monitor". In this task the script calluxxprovider.vbs is scheduled to clean up all logs older than 7 days. So, when accessing performance in Server manager, these files are used to show the performance data.


It appears that the script per se is not malicious. However, it could have been modified by malware. I would submit the script to Virus Total to determine if other solutions find something.

Also according to this: https://skatterbrainz.wordpress.com/2016/02/05/legacy-code-still-alive-in-microsoft-products/ , this .vbs script only exists on Win Server 2012 R2. As such if it exists on another Win version, I would treat it as suspect.
