After removing KAV2009 - I saw 3 messages, about missing grpconv.exe (file / process).

After placing Avira Premium - I saw 2 messages about missing grpconv.exe (file / process).

Both anti-viruses worked properly... but, that error annoys me... :thumbsup:

What should I do? Thx..

P.S. In-proccess of installing KAV2009 - it was firstly spotted. Or, maybe after trying to fix KAV2009... Trojan.Win32.Agent.chwe - the ifection was that (during KAV).

grpconv.exe is a Windows Operating System tool. It is used to convert Windows 3.1 groups to folders when upgrading to Windows 95 or later. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated


Sounds like you might have a virus, look at the ThreatExpert report.

If the process is genuine and it's missing, thats not good. You could try a repair of Windows. It could also be a virus trying to launch that file. The virus names in the ThreatExpert report sound similar to yours.
