Can't Remove dvdfax.exe
Posted on 2004-11-01
I have found a process running on one of our computers.
This file is hidden in the C:\WINDOWS\TASKS folder.
There was a reference to is in the registry, as well: RUNONCE: dvdfax.exe rerun
I can not end the task in taskmanager...it simply reloads a moment later.
Once I kill it in the registry and reboot...I can stop the file in taskmanager (although, I'm not sure how it reloaded in the first place)...HOWEVER...it seems to create addtional .exe files: In the past hour I have noticed new files running in RUNONCE portion of registry, and in the Taskmanger:
I am looking for information about the original culprit: dvdfax.exe
Where did it come from?
What harm can it cause?
How can I permenantly remove it?
