Any idea's what this proccess is?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, :D

Just starting to have a problem which SAS is unable to detect. Proccess xvyu5i4c.exe keeps appearing and spontaneously opens IE to some random page. Full scans show nothing and a google search brings back nothing. Any ideas :?:

Think i've solved it in the meantime, stealth install ( ProtexisLicensing ) with paint shop pro, and a legal upgrade! Gits. :evil:

Solution as follows if anyone else is having this,

go to Administrative Tools -> Services and stop ProtexisLicensing

(or just press Start-> Run -> services.msc and press Enter)

Stop the service and put on Disable.

Go to Strat-> Run -> sc delete ProtexisLicensing

and press Enter, now ProtexisLicensing will be removed from services list

Go to SYSTEM32 folder and delete this files:

- PSIService.exe

- PSIKey.dll

It appears to be legit, but may be "stealth" installed:

I am also having trouble with this xVYU5I4C.EXE file. It isn't linked to the file you were able to find and delete. It creates tasks in the task list and when i delete it, it recreates itself and throws up random ad pages. IE also closes on its own occasionally. Any further info on the files you deleted in system32 would be a big help. eg. the file size. Please post any other info you have!! thanks.
