I've been having a bit of a problem with this file. Some of my apps are freezing up, and when I check my process list using ctrl-alt-del I see 100% CPU usage, and all by this file. FYI, I am running XP SP3.
I know this is a valid windows process, so I checked your startup lists and found LOADS of trojans and spyware that create a false version of this. Rather than stepping through the list of potential issues one-by-one, I did a search of my C: drive and found three of apps by this name, in the following directories:
Does anyone know whether these are all valid? And if not, what is the best way to deal with them?
FYI, I have also run a scan with my Norton anti-virus (which found nothing) and Ad-Aware 2008 (which found a few things but I'm not sure whether they were related to this problem). I'll admit that I haven't seen the problem again since the Ad-Aware scan so that may have fixed it, but as I found these files I thought it would be worth asking anyway to make sure.
Thanks in advance for your help!
