The file is ping.exe is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32

I have never noticed ping.exe running in the Window’s Task Manger before.

Normally this is a safe process, but if it's running without you initiating it it may be the sign of an infection. To verify, please do the following:

Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then create a NEW topic here.
One of the expert helpers there will give you one on one assistance when one becomes available.

Please note that it may take 48 hours or more for you to receive a response in the malware removal forum, as it is often busy at times. Please do not reply to your own post asking for help unless its been more than 48 hours since you originally posted, as this can make it appear as though you are being helped and take longer for you to get help.

If you are unable to do all or any of the steps in the link to the directions above, just post your problem into the forum I gave you a link to anyway and someone will be able to assist you.

If you prefer to be assisted via email you may contact support@malwarebytes.org and one of our support staff members will assist you directly.

If you are a reseller, affiliate, technician, corporate, business, educational, government or non-profit customer then please contact corporate-support@malwarebytes.org and include full contact details along with your Reference # when you do to ensure that you receive prompt assistance.

Thank you :)

Thanks for sharing that, I've had troubles with ping.exe and it didn't seem like there was any reason for it to be running.
