rundll32.exe clearmytracksbyprocess runs multiple times eating memory
Posted on 2009-04-28
I have had an issue recently with vista ultimate and a "rundll32.exe clearmytracksbyprocess" showing multiple instances in taskmgr/process explorer. Sometimes 5 or more instances at once each of which are eating up 4xxk of memory (and one or 2 eating up 50k of memory). Doing some research, i have found that ccleaner uses this as a means to delete temp files from ie, but i dont use ccleaner on this system. In fact, I do not run any antivirus or anti spyware tools activly, i do mbam regularly with no bad results.
The only warning i get when this is happening is a popup from vista (i do not run a swap - gaming reasons)advising me to close xyz.exe program to prevent data loss. My trouble with this is i use IE very seldom, only during conflictions with viewing pages via opera or firefox.
My question is, is there a way to disable this feature of auto-cleaning the temp cache? I'd prefer this utility to simply never run if that is an achievable result. The google gods are not answering this time...
Thank you in advance!
