I do have these files in my system. I have upgraded my CA Suite last week and noticed theses files only yesterday. What's surprising me is that, if I delete the mdmcls32.exe file, it gest automatically re-created and if I kill the process, it gets immediately re-started. I have posted a thread here this morning, before noticing this one.

I also just found another interesting thread at www.techsupportforum.com (from which I believe is the same the_blinkster) http://www.techsupportforum.com/security-c...-processes.html

I am satisfied with the information I got from that thread (but unsatisifed with the CA product I purchased). I was uncertain, if I was to uninstall (not to say destroy) the CA Suite, forget about my investment and choose other respectable products instead. I am now more convice it will be a wise choice to do so. To me, the case is closed.

Thanks for the tips.

Hello Lenid2

I have split your reply into its own thread. When you have an issue or problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic account. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more people in the same thread with different problems. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using.

Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is also known as "hijacking a thread", which is not considered proper forum etiquette.

I see you now have a hijackthis log posted here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusing, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck with your log.
