ddcvt.exe

My System details are Compaq Presario P4, 256 MB RAM, XP-SP2 (patched uptodate), ZoneAlarm Free 6.5, AVG Free 7, Ewido Anti-spyware 4.0, DiamondCS ProcessGuard Free 3.405.  I have just observed the presence of "C:\Windows\System32\ddcvt.exe" both in ZA's Program Control and ProcessGuard's Security tab.  A google search provides no information.

What is this ddcvt.exe please?

Greetings, abanerji !

ddcv.exe seems to be an unknown process at this time.

If it is not causing you any problem, you can leave it alone.

If you want to remove it, rename the file to ddcvt.bak, and restart the computer. See if the change any program.

Best wishes!

Thank you for your comment.

Meanwhile, I had posted at castlecops too and this is what they say
(http://www.castlecops.com/t171534-ddcvt_exe_file.html). It's apparently part of GPL
Ghostscript, which I remember came with my pdf creator.

I have also since done online scan of the file at VirusTotal, Jotti, and Norman Sandbox, and
all engines say the file is clean.

Anyway, in today's cyberworld, one has to be paranoid I feel :-)
