RASKEY

I am running an HP Pavillion system with XP Home Edition in my office.  I have a program that I found in the processes that I cannot reference anywhere.  The program is raskey.exe - It crashed today then when I rebooted the system it showed up in the process list again.  I have ended the process several times but it keeps coming back.  At times the memory usuage is up to 18 - 20,000 Kb.  This program does not run on any of the other systems that I have checked including my home system and other office computers.

Any help identifying this process is greatly appreciated.

Try this

Sart > Run msconfig
Click on the tab marked "Startup"
Click the Disable All button.

If the problem no longer persists then one of the items in the starup is the culprit you just need to track it down.
