I've got this proccess on my computer that I can't remove. Each time it comes back and it taking up a lot of CPU power. Is there I way I can remove this from my computer. I installed 'BOINC - World Community Grid' on my computer a while ago. Could this be behind it? I'm a fairly altristic person, but I simply can't allow them to take up this much space to proccess protien folding for them. Any advice?
I done some reading and it seems that Autodock is some how affiliated with WCG. Just noticed that the proccess is indeed from WCG. I must say I'm very disapointed in this. The program isn't even running yet it's taking a lot of CPU power.
Are you saying its one file and the exact name is wcg_hcmd2_maxdo_2.14_windows_intelx86? Where is this file located (full file path) on your system?
Go to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. -- Then post back with the results of the file analysis.

Problem more of less solved. World Community Grid was running in the background. I've used Uniblue to disable the process on start up so it shouldn't be running in ther background unless I allow it. Thanks for replying anyway.
