Can anyone tell me where the file tskmgr32.exe is originating from? My spyware progie, SpyBot, found it and deleted it. Soon after, it came back and always to the ProgramFiles/InternetExplorer folder on my hard drive.

When I click on properties, no extended info is available on it. Is this from the MS people, or some other source?

Thanks for the help.

welcome to T.S.G :)

tskmgr32.exe is a homepage hijacker that will keep returning unless you remove it properly.

Do this:

go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, 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 somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

And when you do fuh Hijack This as Steve suggested, see if you find: O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Server] tskmgr32.exe. That needs to be removed.
