HOMO.EXE ? Virus

Would anyone know how to remove the homo.exe from Task Manager processes. It use up all the CPU usage.  We have a server with it.

Another point, that file that I had to remove kept on sucking up 100 percent of the cpu as well.

Hello mmoreau45 =)

U must be having a startup entry in Start>Run>msconfig>Startup list, or a registry entry in Startup Run keys in regedit.... delete its keys or untick it in msconfig, then restart in safemode, and delete this file !!!
Restart in Normal Mode and now u shudn't be having it :)

!! GOOD LUCK !!

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

Yes, first do what SheharyaarSaahil said but then also update your antivirus software, run it on ALL machines, and then install spybot Search and Destroy from the address below also running on all machines:

Also make sure you have a corporate firewall so as to block programs coming down without your knowledge. Zonealarm is a good choice but others also may be worthwhile:

I had a problem with a similiar little bugger today.  I forgot the exact name of the file but it was something like mvsnut.exe.   Anyway, i did all my tricks.  Adaware and then msconfig.

It woudn't go away.

I would end the process and within a second, it would restart itself.

I ran hijack this and deleted the BHO for that file.  It reappeared as sooon as i rescanned.

Finally I rebooted into safe mode with command prompt only.  Once in the command prompt mode, I manually erased that file (it was in the windows folder).  I then rebooted, got an error that the file coudn't be found and then the problem didn't reoccur.

I rescanned with hijack this and could not find that same file, so I was happy.

In Win XP Pro, login as the Admin I am unable to remove TCP/IP from the NIC setings.  Is there a work around other than Safe Mode.

Please excuse me but I did get the answer to my question.  It seems that our Active Directory has control of the Policies set in the Domain.

I have a W2K system and the exployer.exe (I beleive this is Windows Exployer) is malfuntioning and pop ups an error stating it can not read the memory.  Any ideas of how I can repair this with out surgery of the format of re-install OS.
