Suspicious file in NT4 system32 folder gcdnsmx.exe

What is this application gcdnsmx.exe? I noticed it in the task manager - both an application and a process by the same name - and then located the exe file in the system32 folder.

NAV gives it the all clear.

Other files with the same date-time-stamp are gcupdates.dll and gcregcard.dll

I have a feeling this is related to PostCast Server which I am running.

Yes, it is files associated with PostCast Server.  If you download the software and open the .exe file in notepad you can do a text search for the files and those files you mentioned are in the .exe files I downloaded.

Yes you are right - gcdnsmx.exe is found in the setup file.
Postcast server seems to run just fine without gcdnsmx.exe running and with the file renamed to non-executable. I wonder what it does? Some dns stuff perhaps? Bit of a worry when it doesn't run all the time - only just noticed it after two weeks of using Postcast.

Well, if it is a part of the program it does something.  Maybe does some DNS things for the program.  You could contact the vendor for futhrer knowledge of the gcdnsmx.exe.  I would not reanem it quite yet, it might do something you might need in the program in the future.
