Hello, I just had some problem with remote desktop this afternoon. Although it looks fine now, I am still not very sure. Can someone have a look at this please?

First symptom:

When I press the 'connect' button in the 'remote desktop connection' dialog, it always crashes. In the system event viewer under 'application' I had events like this:
'Faulting application mstsc.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, faulting module mstscax.dll, version 6.0.6001.18266, fault address 0x0015bcfa.'

Initial actions:

I can not remember exactly when it worked properly last time, but I am sure it worked last month. So:
1. Checked the logs in my antivirus (McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i database July 24) and firewall (Comodo Firewall 3.981003.508), nothing unusual.
2. updated windows and restart. no joy.
3. retried with firewall disabled. nothing changed.


Only one item looked suspicious:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [{668E1299-6BEF-0BE0-4861-D65F09ADC118}] "C:\Documents and Settings\terry\Application Data\Irox\opyn.exe"

Further action:

I moved 'opyn.exe' (renamed as well) to another folder, restarted, and remote desktop was back to normal.


I tried to google this 'opyn.exe' and analyze it online. It looks quite bad:



I also saw another result from anubis.iseclab.org, which suggests opyn.exe may be created by a parent process:


Has anyone had similar experience? What should I do now?
