I have a computer that was really slowing down. It is a windows xp computer with McAfee anti-virus protection. I noticed in task manager that the ping.exe was running really high. I ended the process and it just keeps coming back. I have ran Malwarebytes both in safe mode and not. I have made sure McAfee was up to date.
I searched for the .exe file and found it in system32 folder. I deleted it and cleared the recyle bin and it popped right back up in the same place.
I turned off system restore thinking that would fix it but that didn't seem to have an effect. I am not sure what to do next.
I would greatly appreciate any advice that anyone might have about this. I have tried a few searches but have not found a fix yet!
