Unknown Program Randomly Runs Briefly
Posted on 2005-05-03
I am running Windows XP Professional. I have a program or process that apparently runs (minimumized) briefly, about every 15 minutes or so. I first noticed about 10 days ago that my screen saver was not running or that the monitor was not in powersaving mode even after a couple hours of not using the computer. Sometimes while I'm using the computer, I see a minimized box come up for about a second or less, then disappear. I've tried to "right click" the minimized program when it come up to try to find out what it is, but with no success. I am running current virus and internet security programs. I regularly run AdAware, Spybot, and Spyware Doctor, but they do not find anything malicious. Any ideas on what it could be or how to find out?
