Hi, I am new to this site.
Can anyone help me out in deleting:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\alg.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\reg.exe
When I delete reg.exe computer runs faster but gives an error message while opening the computer
I don't trust this alg.exe. What is it?

Hello 8Bits
alg.exe explained here http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/alg.exe.html

Reg.exe explained here http://www.file.net/process/reg.exe.html
i would NOT delete ANYTHING as of yet.
what symptoms/problems are you having with your PC if any?
What makes you think you should delete these?
what operating system are you running?
what antivirus/Firewall are you running if any?

Please post back to this thread with some more information please.

Thank you
