Mapped Drive Error - cudifouh.exe

Hi,

We've recently installed a new virtual [VMWare Inf Foundation] file server on a Windows 2003 Std Svr platform. Our clients run a login script to map the drives to the shares on the new file server. Some users get the following error when trying to open the mapped drives in "My Computer".

"Windows cannot find 'cudifouh.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again". [screenshot attached]. The client machines are all Dell running Windows XP in an NT domain. I have noticed that clients running SP3 have the error and clients with SP2 don't. BUT I upgraded two machines from SP2 to SP3 and they still work so I'm not sure if this is the cause. I can fix the error by removing the below key from the registry but when the script runs the next time the error appears again. [I know I could add a command in the login script to remove the reg entries but I'd like to find out why this is happening]
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion|Explorer\MountPoints2\ server & share name

Any ideas?

Craig.

cudifouh.exe isn't a virus? Have you scanned for viruses with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php)

Definatley not a virus, currently there are 8-10 machines that have this error and all have up-to-date McAfee Virus Scan protection and MalwareBytes installed.

Do a registry search for the name. Must be in there somewhere...

The cudifouh.exe is referenced in the registry, I've shown the location in the attached file. If I delete the whole key for the mointpoint entry that references the server share, it works. Then when the login script runs again, the error message re-appears.

Cudifouh.exe then should exist in System32. Find it, right click, check for any details, delete it. If it isn't there do a file search including system and hidden. If it is hidden, then virus / malware is likely. Can't find any reference to it anywhere. Weird.

No it's not in System32 or anywhere else on the machine. [I've got view hidden files/ folders and operating files enabled]

Huh? I was pretty sure you have a virus somewhere on your network. Oh, well. Anyway, if it comes back again, try scanning for viruses. Thank you
