ok. so this bug, this thing...pkpopi.exe has nested itself into my computer and will not leave! Don't bother try searching it on google...oh no. Its not there. Things that also don't work against this mystery thing:
Security Task Manager
Spybot Search and Destroy
Manually trying to find it is useless, it is a stealthy little bug that is hidden, even amongst my hidden folders. If anyone has any idea how to remove this little sucker, PLEASE let me know ASAP.
What it does (that i know of):
-Crashes iTunes. If I manage to remove it for a few seconds, I can open iTunes but as soon as it starts running again iTunes crashes.
-Starts up with my computer
-Theres a possiblilty it is putting adware on the computer. Ever since I noticed it was present, there have been MAD AMOUNTS of pop ups.
-Uses up lots of memory.
That's all I really know so far. Its in my C:\\WINDOWS\system32 folder but everytime I try to find it, it is undetectable, even when I select "show hidden folders". PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE...someone, HELP!
