In my task manager, there is a process running with the image name "WinemoSN.exe". I don't have any programs that even remotely have a name like that so I did a google search on the program which turned up nothing.

I right clicked on the process and clicked "Open File Location" and found the file located in the folder "AppData\Roaming\Winemo".

Not knowing what it is, I ended WinemoSN.exe in the Task Manager, but about 10 seconds later, the process showed up again. I also attempted deleting the file immediately after ending its process, and it did delete, but also after a few seconds, both the file and the process in the task manager reappeared.

I've tried scanning with AVG, but it hasn't found anything. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Glad I can help you!

Lets try an additional scan.

Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


DR. WEB CUREIT
----------------------
Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and uncheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

regards, Elise

I followed the directions, but in the end however, it stated that there were no viruses found. The "save report list" option in the "File" menu was grayed out and unclickable.

I think I should inform you that I'm running Windows 7. Sorry for not stating it in my original post. I'm not sure if it makes a difference with these scans, but I thought I'd share.

Sorry for not coming back earlier to you, I have been quite busy.

Its good you told me you are running Windows 7. Not all tools work correct with it yet.

How is your system running otherwise? Any strange behaviour, slow performance, errors?

regards, Elise

As far as I can tell, there hasn't been any strange occurences. Slow performance, nothing out of the norm.. just when Firefox eats a lot of RAM. Other than that, I think it's just that unkillable process that's running.

I am afraid I dont know enough about Windows 7 to give you any clarification here. It might be something protected by the OS, but I really dont know how that is done in Win7. But it is weird there are no google hits at all on it.

regards, Elise

Should I take my problem to another forum? I'd really hate to have to reformat my computer over something like this. :T

Bleeping computer has a Windows 7 forum

You can post a topic here.
Alternatively, if you suspect this is malware, you can post a log for review in the HJT forum.

I really don't think you have to worry about a reformat right now :thumbsup:

regards, Elise

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/259263/unkownunkillable-program-running-winemosnexe/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
