MPCLAUNCHER.EXE is classified as safe by Prevx.

Download, install and use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility - (it will list all programs that use Windows Installer).
  • Double-click on msicuu2.exe and click "Next".
  • Accept the license agreement, click "Next", then click "Next" again.
  • Click "Finish" when done.
  • Go to Start > Programs and click on Windows Install CleanUp to launch the program.
  • In the list of Install Products, check to see if MPCLAUNCHER.EXE is present.
  • If so, highlight that entry, then click on the "Remove" button.
  • Then reinstall the program if you still want to use it again.
* The Remove button does not remove the program. It removes the install configuration.
* If you plan to reinstall the program, you should reinstall the program in the same folder where you originally installed it.


First thing you need to do is to identify the process(es) causing the high CPU utilization and where the it is running from. Determining whether a file is malware or a legitimate process sometimes depends on the location (path) it is running from. One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file. However, it then places itself in a different location on your computer. A file's properties may give a clue to identifying it. Right-click on the file, Properties and examine the General and Version tabs.

You can download and use Process Explorer to investigate all running processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. These tools will show the process CPU usage, a description and its path location. If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you will see more details about the file. To get a list of processes shown by Process Explorer, go to file and choose Save as... to create a log named Procexp.txt in the same folder where Process Explorer resides.

If you have XP Pro, you can use Tasklist to display a list of active processes.
Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
press Ok
At the command prompt type: tasklist /svc >c:\taskList.txt
press Enter
Then go to Start > Run and type: c:\taskList.txt
press Ok to view the list of processes.

The /SVC switch shows the list of active services in each process.
For help and syntax information, type the following command: tasklist /?
press ENTER or see: Syntax options

You can also use the WMI command-line utility to view and list processes.
Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
press Ok
At the command prompt type:
WMIC /OUTPUT:C:\ProcessList.txt PROCESS get Caption,Commandline,Processid
press Enter.

or you can type:
WMIC /OUTPUT:C:\ProcessList.txt path win32_process get Caption,Processid,Commandline
press Enter.

Then go to Start > Run and type: C:\ProcessList.txt
press Ok to view the details of all the processes.

If you don't know what a process is or you come across a suspicious file, search the name using Google or the following links:
BC's File Database
BC's Startup Programs Database
File Research Center
Process ID Database
How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process

Anytime you come across a suspicious file which you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.

I'm glad you were able to resolve the problem. Sometimes a reinstall of the OS is the best solution. I work as a staff volunteer here at BC and a few other community security forums.
