Respawing mplayer2.exe system process
Posted on 2004-03-24
Recently I have clicked on some plug-ins while surfing the web...
I think i installed some malware onto my computer...
After running norton antivirus 2004 and ad-aware 6, I thought I have removed all the spywares and malwares on my computer after the incident...
However, today, I saw some surprising situation on my computer
I usually take a random look at what processes is running on my computer by pressing ctrl+alt+del
But then I saw a "mplayer2.exe" in the processes' list in the taskmanager window
I decided I should close it by terminating the process (since I am not watching any movies or clips at the moment)
But things get interesting, the mplayer2.exe respawned in like 10 secs everytime after I terminate it in the system process
Does anyone know the cause of it?? any spyware or virus associated with this attribute??
Thanks in advance
