I'm new to this website and would like some help with how to fix the error I keep getting. I been getting the error RCApp.exe and it says it has encountered a problem and needs to close. It doesn't seem to affect anything but I would like to have the problem resolved so I don't keep getting that error.

Thanks for the help, it's greatly appreciated.

Do you have Norton Password Manager installed on this computer? If you do try the following.

Download ATF Cleaner and clear your temporary files and browser files. Go to Start> Run and type in msconfig, find the reference to the RCApp, go to it and remove it.

I have Norton Antivirus. I typed in misconfig and looked under services and startup and I don't see RCApp.exe?

FWIW: Check the default location of the file in question at http://www.programchecker.com/file/34014.aspx

And...always remember that:

1. Startup references to removed files may remain even if the file is removed/uninstalled.

2. Malware will/can duplicate/simulate any given file used by a familiar program, with the file location being key in determining whether it's malware or not.

If I wanted to locate a startup reference or what it seems that you are looking for, I would use Autoruns and take a look at the Logon and the Services tabs.
