Hi,

I've been having huge problems with my computer (Dell Dimension 8200; 2.4 GHz; 256 MB RAM; WIN XP Home Ed.) since Wednesday. The problems I'm experiencing are booting/rebooting (random processes not starting; taking a very long time to reboot), and getting Virtual Memory too low warnings, which cause atrocious performance issues.

Norton AntiVirus 2004 shows no viruses or Trojan Horses.

Ad-adware is showing:

Vendor:Possible Browser Hijack attempt
Category:Data Miner
Object Type:RegData
Size:-
Location:Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main "Start Page" ("about:blank")
Last Activity:7-11-2004
Risk LevelMedium
Comment:Possible browser hijack attempt
Description:Possible attempt to control\redirect the browser. This object referrs to a "blacklisted" site.

This error seems weird in that the Vendor statement doesn't seem right and the Location IS what I want (i.e., I do want about:blank to be my Start Page).

Due to this doubt about this error, I've chosen not to quarantine it.

Now my big question.

On my hard drive I have the following:

C:\Program Files\MProcessor

data.dat
first.awp
initial.cfg
main.cfg
MProcessor.exe
replacer.exe
second.awp

What is MProcessor? Some of the files are date stamped around the time that I've been experiencing problems.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

We need a closer look at what's happening.
Please download Hijack this
Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

Please note that I'm not having any computer issues (at least today and yesterday) after doing the following:

Using the System Configuration Utility, I unchecked the Start Up Item mprocessor under the Startup tab. Under the General tab, I'm starting the computer with Selective Startup selected.

A few days ago I did run HijackThis and it did contain a reference to C:\Program Files\MProcessor.

I noticed that some of the files under this directory were date stamped around the same time that I started experiencing computer problems.

Do you know what MProcessor (Mprocessor.exe to be exact) is? Is this part of MS WIN XP? Is this spyware or adware? Can I get rid of this directory and all of its references in the registry?

Thanks again.
