Please can someone help me resolve a persistant 'Icc runtime: GP fault. Stack trace' message box appearing containing the error message

'Corrupted Stack. Impossible to show trace'

This is a windows 2000 server operating system.
The problem seems to happen frequently and leaves a number of message boxes on the screen if left overnight.

Any Ideas?

regards

We saw this error today in our of our laptops.  The problem is due to a malware called winspsv.exe that resides in c:\winnt\system32 folder.  Look into the Registry key called hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run and you shall see a key called Windows Services=C:\winnt\system32\winspsv.exe.  Delete it and restart your computer in Safe Mode.  Then delete winspsv.exe from the System32 folder. Restart the computer in normal mode and retest.  I have submitted the file to Symantec for investigation.

Thank you.

Hi

I tried  a simpler alternative, which seemed to work. This is simply following the above method but applying it in a different way.

1. Seach (start menu: search for files and folders) the C: drive for winspsv.exe.
2. Rename from winspsv.exe. to winspsv1.exe.
3. Reastart the machine.

This seems to have worked, but I don't guarantee it as such a solid solution as the one above, but it is easy to try and run within Windows, and after seeing many hoax virus/solutions, I am a little wary of deleting files.

Regards

I hope this os of help. Any further comments on this, I am sure will be useful

Thanks for the information. Symantec responded to me and informed me that the file is viral and it is W32.Randex.  The latest virus definition file from Norton should detect it.

Below is the information from Symantec sent to me:

We have analyzed your submission.  The following is a report of our findings for each file you have submitted:

filename: A:\winspsv.exe
machine:
result: This file is infected with W32.Randex

Developer notes:
A:\winspsv.exe is non-repairable threat.  NAV with the latest beta definition detects this.  Please delete this file and replace it if neccessary.  Please follow the instruction at the end of this email message to install the latest beta definitions.
