Hi javeed_ccna,

Downloading the latest Intel Graphics drivers should work.

Good idea would be to start by scanning all PCs with Adaware SE avail. from www.lavasoftusa.com

Then download HiJackThis from http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html and also run on these PCs.
Run HiJackThis and post the log file in this forum for more explanation on what to do next (if it hasn't gone away already)


Chances are also pretty good that this is as a result of a virus.
If you do not have virus protection, download the AVG free edition from www.grisoft.com and scan for virusses.

Hope this is a good start to recovering from that issue.
I do not think its a SP2 issue though

Thanks
;)

hkcmd.exe >> http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/hkcmd/

so u must be using an Intel product.... and its drivers are creating problem with SP2..... so as Zyloch said, update them to the lateset version which are compatible with SP2 and it shud take care of the problem :)
