Hi all. could someone please help me.
I just had to install a new hard drive and reinstall everything. I looked into my task manager and there is 2 entries for the same subject . I had a little problem installing drivers for my graphics card and had to reinstall a couple of times. I checked the path where the file is loading from ( system32 ) and there is only one entry. not really sure what is going on. just wondering if I am having conflicts with the drivers for the graphics card and the programs with my monitor .

Thanks

A discussion about your issue is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/89438/question-about-ati2evxxexe-process/

Seems that fast user switching is turned on by default and causes two instances of that .exe to run. Check to see if you have that going on. Hope this helps.


btw, nice member name. :thumbsup:
