I do not currently have HJT installed on the computer in question but do have a file I can't seem to delete. On this XP box I see the TASKWMS.EXE running at all times, utilizing over %50 of the processors. If I end the process it just starts over. There does not exist a file on the computer with that name.

I cannot seem to find any information on this file anywhere other than a couple of entries on this site. So if someone can give me some direction I'd appreciate the help.

A HJT log will help us get this out of your registry

Download Hijackthis:


If you cannot reach either site it is available from my signature.

You need to put HijackThis into its own folder. It makes backups and they need to be kept all in one place.

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your hijackthis.exe there.Please post a new log.
