Problem with Chess.exe and Windows Vista
Posted on 2008-10-07
Seem to be having a bit of a strange problem. We have a network of about 15-20 desktops running a mixture of operating systems from 2000/XP and Vista.
Recently we have installed a Windows Server 2008 file server and moved our data over to this.
Now on all of our Windows Vista computers show an option for chess everytime we right click on our mapped drive and we can't double click to open the drive. We can get to the drive if we go through a unc path and we have checked permissions on the new server .
If we search through the registry on a vista machine it refers to a program called chess.exe in the root of the mapped drive, however we can't find this file on either servers.
This only seems to be causing an issue with our windows vista computers, all of our other computers are working fine.
We can delete any registry keys that relate to chess.exe and the issue looks like it disappears but when you reboot the machine the issue comes back again. We have ran malwarebytes on the computer but it doesn't detect anything. We have anti virus running on all computers and both servers.
Any help would be much appreciated.
