    Hello
    I have a multiple of these files showing up in Task Manager - they use intermittently up to 100% of processing power. They show as System under user name.
    I have searched internet and found nothing about this exe file.
    I have run a Reg Edit search and found 1(which I deleted) in the Windows/current version/ShellNoRoam/BagMRU/MUIcache folder.
    I have also searched the whole computer and found nothing.
    It's as if they are a ghost file
    There are usually 3 in the task manager - but sometimes 6

    Can anyone tell me, what they are and how to remove them?

    Thank You

    Colin

    It should be rather obvious that the names of the executables are randomly created, so a search would not yield any results. Considering that 25,000 new pieces of malware are released onto the internet every day, it is fruitless to even try to determine exactly what infection you have. You just want to get rid of it. For that, you should go to our virus forum, read the directions, and get help from the pros there.
