Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Well, anything can be called anything, so just having the name isn't enough. More info is needed, such as where are these files running from? In other words, where on your computer are these files located? Also, are there more than one of each of these on your computer? It is possible to have a legitimate one and a malicious one.

And probably the better forum for this discussion is:

Am I infected? What do I do? found HERE.

EDIT: Had to fix my bold tags!

At first blush, my research does not show these processes to be malicious, but again I refer you to my first post concerning them.

Welcome, live_autopsy!

I don't know about the other two, but I know that agrsmmsg.exe is usually
found on TOSHIBA notebooks. I'm pretty sure.. but I could be wrong. :thumbsup:

alcxmntr.exe = Realtex '97 audio event monitor - not sinister.

tmntsrv.exe = PC-Cillin realtime scan.

agrsmmsg.exe = softmodem assistant.

Nothing bad here.
