Unknown application running on my pc

Question: Unknown application running on my pc

Hi all,
yesterday i was performing some routing maintenance on my pc, and i noticed there was an evernt log showing an error of an application that was stored in the path. (Please note i didnt mistype VLC).
C:\Users\{myuser}\Appdata\roaming\LVC\lvc.exe
It was always giving me an error code 0x0000005. I am worried if this is some sort of virus.
when i checked with a windows defender and avg i got no virus. It was also using the visual basic command line script process when i checked task manager.
What else could i do to check out the problem?
Thanks

EDIT: I tried searching online, but i found no results

Preferred Solution: Unknown application running on my pc

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Unknown application running on my pc

Searching with Startpage shows one link to a fix for some virus and a couple of links to Garmin GPS software. Nothing else of substance.
Lycos found an article about an old Server 2000 bug and a Lee Van Clief screensaver.
I'd try every search engine you can think of until something makes sense.

Hi everybody I need your help again.... An error message has appeared upon my good lady's comp saying ' Visual C++ Runtime Library -Runtime error.
C\: program files\AGI\Python25\pythonw.exe.
this application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way please contact the applications support team for more information.....
1. The thing is that I would inform them if only I knew what program is involved
2. Would it be safe to delete the said program without upsetting any of the other apps.

Your trusty advice would be of value.

Thanks

I noticed last night that I have an unknown (to me at least...not unusual) rar.Upon opening there is an application that has downloads from all torrent and file sharing sites but no description whatsoever.
Does anyone know what u996.exe is? The only info I could find on Google is that it is unknown from an unknown publisher and is not necessary but should not be removed if not causing problems. I did download the Sophos version of the vulnerability exploit that has recently been discovered, that MS's version of the patch apparently (according to Grinler's post), can or will remove the icons from your desktop, but I don't recall that as the name of the file. Any answers?
Many thanks in advance,

Answer:unknown application

I found only scant information relating to known files by the name "u966.exe" and what I did find was rather perplexing. There is a project hosted on Google Code called bma-ebook, which appears to have something to do with the nation of Burma (which is called Myanmar and has been under an oppressive military junta for a long time. You may remember some rather severe protests there making the news in 2007. The Myanmarian Junta rather severely limits, filters and monitors the use of the Internet by its citizens.)

Anyhow, near as I can figure, u966.exe (or at least the one I found) is some sort of internet proxy application. That is, a means by which a person in Myanmar could access otherwise prohibited Internet locations and data, such as those relating to anti-government activists and the like.

This is all largely speculation on my part since, as I said, information was scant and perplexing.

Bearing the above in mind, and assuming that you are neither a Burmese dissident nor attempting to proxy your internet usage, I would say that this file (and the other, torrent, files) indicates that your machine may be compromised and being actively used as a dumpster for bittorrent data, the proxy tool being a facilitator to that. For that reason, I am moving your topic to the "Am I Hacked? What Do I Do?" forum so that a system security helper can either rule out a hack attack or help you to remove it.

Hi everyone, today, when I turned on my pc, at startup, regedit32.exe says that needs my permision to do changes on registry (I use win7 64 bits sp1)
that's seems suspicious to me so I say NO.
when I take a look at my folder, I found an application called kedxalekcyfy.exe

I really don't know what this thing is, so I started searching information on google..and the only result I got is a page in a unknown language, but it looks like it's an spyware forum and someone had a problem like I had.

the point is, I don't know what does this app do. I tried analysis with AVG, with MalwareBytes, with tdsskiller, and adwCleaner, but none of them detect this strange app.

So, I'm going to give all the information I could gather on my pc about this thing.

-it's located on c:/user/me
-the file shows no relevant information on it's details.
-the file is also running as a process (32bits) on task manager and doesn't
let me finish it

on registry it appears on:
microsoft/windows/run/kedxalekcyfy

(this happened once)
if I try to open or do something over this file..pc restarts itself!
So, I guess that's all. What do you recommend?

thanks in advance!

Answer:unknown application (kedxalekcyfy)

Also, on msconfig, I have this info:

regedit32 as unknown and starting at c/windows/system32/regedit.exe (twice)

kedxalekcyfy as unknown starting at c:/users/me/kedxalekcyfy.exe
kedxalekcyfy as unknown starting at c:/programdata/kedxalekcyfy.exe

this is...weird.

Hello all,

So after doing a full virus scan yesterday and removing a bunch of threats from my computer, I suddenly noticed that my PC was being impossibly slow. I opened up task manager and saw that some random program titled "srsx.exe" was chewing up 97% of my CPU's processing power. I ended the process, but about 2 minutes later it automatically popped up again and resumed chewing up all of my CPU.

I ended the process again, opened the file location, and deleted the folder, which was in my AppData/Local folder inside of a folder simply entitled "Crypto". I have absolutely no idea what it was or who installed or how it was installed, so I deleted the entire folder and emptied it from my recycle bin.

Now, every 2-3 minutes, my computer keeps on popping up the following error message, despite the fact that I no longer have that program even on my hard drive anymore. I don't know how to stop it or get rid of it and it's driving me absolutely crazy. Every time it pops up, whatever I'm doing minimizes to desktop so I can read this stupid error message. This can get particularly frustrating while playing games, which is largely what I do on this computer.

If I could get any help or knowledge for this issue, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Since installing WinXP i am frequently troubled by files that i am unable to rename, move or delete. I get an error stating that the file is being used by some other application. I find this a little strange since this will also occur if the PC has just booted up. There are no other Apps open, nor is there anything that looks suspect in the task manager.

The files that tend to be affected are DivX (avi), the strange thing is that sometimes i can delete a file with no problems after having had trouble touching it for hours/days before hand. I never experienced anything like this with Win2k - any ideas anyone..?

Zim

Answer:Files locked by unknown application

I can't understand why you would get that when trying to move or rename a file unless it's a .dll system file which alot of programs in xp use. If I'm reading you correctly the DivX file contains .dll files which you must have inorder for your operating system to run so it's important not to remove nor rename them. There are other ways but I would not do it. If you get that error 9 times out of 10 thats why. Even if you install a game you got at the store this can happen. Becareful of what you remove or you'll be back on here asking how to restore your system.

After Windows NT4 SR3 boots, I get two message windows asking if i really want to delete applications and contents? I must have done a delete the wrong way? If I yes, uninstall shield starts, then returns unable to locate log file? If I no, the message dissappears, but it happens at every start? How do I get to the win.ini-like file to delete the error commands?
 

Answer:unknown remove application errors

The win.ini stuff is in the registry. You will need to write down the exact error messages for an indication of what app it is trying to remove. Then, use regedit to search for the uninstall command and remove it. Always be careful when editing the registry, but, if you stick with software keys, then you should only effect the software and not the system.

She may have a browser hijack object. Suggest that she goes to Windows Explorer>Programme Files and creates a new folder, calling it hJT. Go to http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html and download HiJackThis, unzipping it into that folder from where she can also run it.

The other says modified 21st Jan 2005. There's no information for either in the 'summary' tab. I've done a full scan with Norton, Ad-Aware SE, A-Squared and Ewido and everythings coming up clean.

Hello, I have what I believe to be a problem. On all my Windows 10 machines I have discovered a Hidden Unknown Background Process running at all times. This Unknown Process is not visible in the normal task manager, it's only visible in third party tools like cports and other networking tools. Dose any one know what this is, or if it's a problem or not. Sometimes the Unknown Process will launch many other Unknown Processes making windows 10 slow to react. Below is a list of hosts the Unknown Process is sending requests back and forth to.
Not everything in the list below was coming from this Unknown Process but a lot of it was, I just copied out my block list from my host file and posted it, so some of the list may have been coming from other possesses but most of them are from this Unknown Background application in windows 10.

Today morning when i switched on my laptop, I found some of the Icon changed to unknown icon.(See Attachements)

I searched google i found somewhere a question was posted with same problem. The solution was given as to change the destination of the target exe file. I performed it by renaming the folder in which the exe file is present. I found that the icon changed back to original icons from unknown-icon.

Also when i right click and select properties of those exe files, the original icon of the application appears there, but not in explorer / desktop / taskbar.

I am posting this question here to troubleshoot my problem.
Dont ask me to reinstall all applications and software. I have already done it and but the icon remains as Unknown until i change its destination from its original destination. Even avast icon changed to unknown.(see image) But i cant change its destination to check for its reappearance because it is always open when i start system.

Hi, my os is window vista. Recently i opened an unknown application (.cfg file type, some games files) with notepad editor to see what it is inside. I change something and save it. the file type is still cfg but now it always open with a notepad which coz my game to malfunction...so how do i remove the open with notepad and set it to a an unknown application..which my com don actually recognizes it and will prompt me to search the internet.
 

Answer:Changing open with default program to unknown application.

Press Start (the Windows icon on the bottom right), type regedit and press enter. Press Continue when the UAC thing pops up. Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes, find the .cfg key and delete it. This will reset it so when you open any cfg file it will ask you which program you want to open it with. You may have to restart your computer after completing the above steps.

You posted this in the wrong section by the way.

Hello ,

I have a application exe from my work that will only run and install on a 32 bit OS. I would like to use it on my W7 64 bit OS. I have tried right clicking on properties and then going to compatibility tab...then running it in XP or Vista mode none of them worked. I still get this error... this version of this file is not capable of running on a 64 bit OS. Is there anything else I can try? The exe ran fine with XP and Vista 32 bit.

Answer:Running a 32 bit application exe with 64 bit OS

What application is it?

most programs that will run on x32 and x64 operating systems usually have both install packages on the exe if it doesn't then you either need to get the x64 version or you are going to have to have to install a x32 version of xp or vista on another partion of your computer so you can at least use it some how.

Look at Tools > Internet Options >Connections >Settings > Advanced and see what you have checked in there. This could be the cause. Or, there may be a program that wants to check for updates and needs a connection. It COULD be something evil too!

If your firewall will alert you before a connection to the internet is made, enable this function and just see what is trying to get connected.

Hi,

I've recently had to reformat my computer due to trojan horses killing my registry files among others (W32.sillyFDC which supposedly spreads via removable media). After reformatting, i plugged in my external HDD to retrieve my copied files and a virus alert popped up regarding W32.sillyFDC. I'm not sure if the virus has spread back into my computer but i've just noticed some odd processes in task manager.

First of all, ncdrive32.exe is found in the Processes tab of task manager. I previously deleted this from the registry but whenever i reboot, it keeps coming back. I go to task manager and it's there and if i don't click "end process", i can't access the net.

In the Applications tab, when i first reboot and load task manager, a program called "gdf" is always running and i have no idea what it is.

I am hoping that someone can help me analyse the HJT log and get rid off any spyware or malicious programs. Please help!

Whenever I try to type, this program or virus clicks off the current window, in which I have to reposition my cursor again back to where it was originally. Even as I type now, I am having to click back onto this editor every 6 or 7 words.

I have checked my task manager and cannot find any processes that are running since the only happens and causes a disruption for a brief second. This is very odd and seems to make any task that much more aggravating.

I'm running my computer, a Windows XP, and currently, there are 96 processes running. From what I've read, this is far too many processes, and, I fear that some of them may be of malicious descent. Is there anything I can do to verify the validity of a process?

My task manager shows two running processes that, to my knowledge, i never use: QBDAgent.exe and mrtmngr.exe. I believe that QDBAgent has something to do with quick books and i'm not quite sure what the other does. I'm pretty sure that they aren't spyware, but even in that case, i don't want to have them running if they don't need to be. I know i wasn't having problems before they appeared and i'm not really having problems now, but can someone please tell me how i can keep them from showing up? Thanks.

For about the last 6 months or so around 6:00 pm everyday, the computer hard drive starts running like there is a process running or download taking place. The problem is that it basically hogs all my resources for about 20-30 minutes whereby I cant do anything in my existing application or toggle to another application. I tried to bring up the task manager, but that too wont load up until whatever is running completes and gives back enough resources for it to load. I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop.

I should also add that I regularly run ccleaner, I have McAfee AV, Zone Alarm firewall, and windows defender which I regularly run a scans.

Any idea how I can find out what is going on and then to stop it. Thanks.
 

Answer:Unknown Process(es) Running

Start Process Explorer before 6pm http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
it should show you exactly what kicks in at 6pm and uses all the CPU.

Also, try disconnecting from the internet before 6pm a few days and see of the same thing occurs. (I'm trying to isolate if something is downloading or something is going on internally like a system scan).

Sorry! I meant to post this under the HJT log section, can someone please move it for me or something? I couldn't find a 'delete thread' key...

Hi,

I've recently had to reformat my computer due to trojan horses killing my registry files among others (W32.sillyFDC which supposedly spreads via removable media). After reformatting, i plugged in my external HDD to retrieve my copied files and a virus alert popped up regarding W32.sillyFDC. I'm not sure if the virus has spread back into my computer but i've just noticed some odd processes in task manager.

First of all, ncdrive32.exe is found in the Processes tab of task manager. I previously deleted this from the registry but whenever i reboot, it keeps coming back. I go to task manager and it's there and if i don't click "end process", i can't access the net.

In the Applications tab, when i first reboot and load task manager, a program called "gdf" is always running and i have no idea what it is.

I am hoping that someone can help me analyse the HJT log and get rid off any spyware or malicious programs. Please help!

I've got no clue of where to start on troubleshooting whats going on, so I'll just start with a few symptoms that have been happening lately. First off, Im running a 2405fpw using a 6600 and everything works fine, except the taskbar has a "glitch" in it where it's shaded darker. When I rotate the screen the glitch moves straight to the middle of the screen, and leaves 2 blank squares that have the edges shaded dark. The squares are the same size as the normal icons that appear in the taskbar, so I'm assumning that they're being caused by something that starts their.

When playing games, I'll have my screen minimized by an invisible running program (no clue of what it is) that makes games horrible.

Any ideas of what to check? I doubt it's a hardware problem or even drivers for that matter, but even when IM browsing the internet I'll see something load up that shows a blank icon on the taskbar for ~1 second. Any clues?
 

Answer:Running into a few unknown problems...

anything wierd showing in task manager? ..

you could try running this and see if something fishy comes up ..as well as the normal barrage of spyware tools and virus scanning software both on your comp and free online scans .. maybe different set of vid drivers would resolve your issue ..

Hello TechSpot

In Europe there is a new law requiring to make a special document for proffesional transactions called a DCA/DAE through the internet, instead of the paper document that has always been used.

So our government issues a USB Key with an application on it.
The problem is when i double click this application the computer loads (seemingly, goes slow, makes noise and mouse cursor change to thinking cursor) but nothing actually happens, no window, no error nothing in task manager, like i never clicked the app.

At our office we have 5 computers where 4 of them run windows 7. On one of these computers with windows 7, the USB key works perfectly fine, program runs and can issue the documents.

But take any other computer in the office and we get the above mentioned problem ! XP and Windows 7, no difference. either computer, or laptop, no difference.

Anyone has a good idea of what may cause this ?

you have to make sure the system without JCreator is running the java virtual machine and then you use the java virtual machine on their system to run the classes for the program you've developed.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.
I have a 16 bit application that I developed with Borland Turbo C++ on XP.
I have installed XP mode and reloaded Borland and my application, but when I try to run it, nothing appears to happen.
When I run it under the Borland Debugger I get the message:

An application has attempted to access the keyboard or mouse hardware as a 16 bit Windows application, which cannot be supported. This may cause the application to function incorrectly.

This comes after my latest reinstall of W7 after some very strange errors started cropping up.
This never happened in previous installs of XP Mode.
I have also installed my copy of XP SP3 using VirtualBox, and have got exactly the same message.

I originally saw this message when I installed the Borland software on W7 and tried to run it from there, but it has ALWAYS worked in XP Mode in the past.

What has changed?

I have a 16-bit application that I want to run...problem is I have 64-bit Windows 10 installed and it won't run it. I installed a trial of Windows 10 32-bit on a spare drive and can get it to work perfectly, but I don't want to run at 32-bit outside of this application. I have also tried running virtual machine/XP Mode, but I can't get it to span my two screens (i.e. limited to one monitor). I've also tried Dosbox, but resolution is horrible, and again limited to one screen.

Before I buy another Windows product key, wondering if there are any other solutions that I haven't thought of.

Also, if I do get a second copy of Windows I want to run it off a separate hard drive (i.e. "main" with Windows 64-bit and "spare" with Windows 32-bit). Other than going into the bios and changing the boot priority between the two, is there a way to bring up a selection screen when booting? Or even better, something similar to when you install the OS from disk, it will boot normally unless you press a key.
 

Answer:Running a 16 bit application in Windows 10

Virtualbox - and then install whatever OS you need on it.

That way.. you boot to your normal Windows 10. Then if you want to run that program, you just start up Virtualbox and it will load the OS on it in a VM and away you go.

Which of them should I disable? I was surprised to see tasktray, delayed launcher and command prompt on startup.

Also, through the tuneup program deactivator I saw some odd programs running:

Tasktray, I have no idea what that is but it is for some program that is installed so do a Goolge search.
Bluetooth adapter. Does the owner use any Bluetooth devices?

Command Prompt you should be able to shut down. Not sure why a CMD Prompt is starting with the system.

Delayed Launcher, No idea, again Goolge.

Cat Control Center, Not needed as who changes screen resolution and or makes other changes to the graphic card on a regular basis. Once it is set to what works most everyone leaves the resolution alone.

MS Security client interface doesn't need to be starting with the system startup.

All other are needed and should be left as is.

Broadcom and Intel are OK. If the owner doesn't use any Bluetooth then that could be disabled. As noted above.

LSI HDA Modem? Who uses a Dialup modem these days? Maybe for faxing? But if the owner doesn't do that then it can be shut down.

AMD Cat Install MGR not needed as more then likely you can only install Graphic drivers from the makers website and not directly from AMD.

Hello!Guess i'll just make my introduction here.I'm pretty nooby when it comes to computers and i stumbled upon this site and message boards through a little research on trojans, malware, and all that jazz. I scanned my computer with all the suggestions on the Preparation Guide so i think i'm ready to go with this hijack log.The problem is pretty much when i shutdown my computer, 2 applications are end task shutting down. One is called "m" and the other is "<a bunch of numbers>.app".Also, i play FFXI and in order to access the game, i have to go through this crap program called Play Online Viewer. It keeps crashing on me and i think these apps. might be the reason behind them.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was looking through all of my current process using Ctrl Alt Del, and i came across a one titled: 1fc45d48.exe It says that it is being run under my User Name, and i dont know what it is. First thing i did was search on google, but there were no results. Also, I have ad-aware se personal, spybot search and destroy, mcafee virus scan, norton systemworks. And i have scanned with all of them today, and none of them noticed that process... Finally, i just did a search for the file, and it is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32.

I just cleared off several spywares from my laptop (used SuperAntiSpyware and Smitfraudfix). Both worked without a hitch, but now I found 2 programs running in the background that are eating up my cpu speed. The first was utorrent which I uninstalled thru Add Remove Prog. The other is in the startup folder and will not let me turn it off or uninstall (documents&settings/user/applicationdata/microsoft/dtsc/22751). After reading several other posts on things to do before posting, I cleared the temp folders and ran hijackthis. The log is attached. What is this file and should I remove it, and if so how?
 

Answer:An unknown file running in background

You still have some stuff on there that needs to be cleaned up. Post another log on the Malware Removal forum and when you do instead of attaching the log, copy and paste the whole thing in the body of the message.

You also have an older version of HJT, so get the new one here:

Go to this site http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/hijackthis.php?page=download.

Click on 'Download HijackThis Installer'.

*Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop, or to the location where you normally download.
*Double-click on HJTInstall.exe.
*Click on Install.
*By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.
*Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
*Click on the 'Do a system scan and save a logfile button'. It will scan and the log will open in notepad.
*Click Save to save the log file.
*Click on 'Edit > Select All' then click on 'Edit > Copy' (or Ctrl-C) to copy the entire contents of the log.
*Start a new thread on the Malware Removal forum and Paste (or Ctrl-V) the log in the message.

*DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I think my computer has been used recently to look at some dicey sites, and am concerned there might be some dodgy software now on my system.

The main reason I think this is because I sometimes get sounds coming out of the speakers that aren't related to any of the programs I am running. The sound is a clicking sound which goes off twice and then repeats a few minutes later.

I've run Spybot, Adaware and AVG, which seem to indicate the all-clear. However, if someone could take a look through my HijcakThis log to set my mind at rest, that would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

I have Zone Alarm telling me that Windows Explorer is trying to access web, as well as Sun Java . I recently downloaded an application that turned out to be malicious. I tried to clean up the mess, but i have ipkbynop.exe on my process list, Google has no results when i search for it, and Process Library has no information on it . Im wondering if this is a problem, and am denying access of Windows Explorer and Sun Java to the web until I found out if this is something malicious .
Does anyone know what ipkbynop.exe is ?
 

Answer:unknown process running ipkbynop.exe

Hi

With such a random collection of characters its possible its a malware file, as they tend to hide themselves as such, Java and Win Explorer would generally try to connect to web or more so Sun Java as by default its updater is in your run hive, Win Explorer is likely to be wanting local access.

But run the below to double check malware, attach all the requested logs so the malware experts can review them, if they find anything they will post some manual removal instructions for you

Please follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

I've been having this problem for the past month or so. Something is running on my computer that will not let my screensaver start, or let my computer sleep. If I disable all start-up items, my screensaver works normally, but I can't do some common things such as log-in to eBay, or Yahoo.

I have run SpyBot, and AdAware, and it didn't help, and AVG doesn't pick anything up. Any ideas?

Here is my log....
