The OS is Windows 2000, and the path is C:\WINNT\AppPatch\taskun.e
It was causing the computer to run very slowly. When I tried to close the process in the Task Manager it would immediatly restart.
I tried to use the registry editor to remove the startup item from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Softwar
ce.Every time I removed it, it was immediatly reinstalled.
I finally restarted Windows in the debugging mode and was able to close the process and remove the registry entry. Then I was able to delete the file after changing the file settings to show protected system files.
In a Google search I was only able to find one reference to this file at the following link:
Has anyone else had a problem with this file?
Does anyone know where this file comes from, and what it does?
