File called "Program" keeps popping up on root c:\ - Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit

    Question

  • Hello,

    How do I get rid of a file called "Program" that keeps popping up on root c:\ ?

    System Background:

    Windows 2008 R2 64bit

    Roles: DC, DNS, DHCP

    "Program" File Content:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
    1 Servers were found in the directory service:

    Server [*****] Address [*****] Ds location: cn=*****


    Command completed successfully.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ****Names and IP omitted*****

    The file is an output of this command "netsh DHCP show server" but I cannot locate where is it coming from, I checked Task Scheduler and Logon Scripts but I am coming up empty. Any one knows how to solve this problem?

    Thanks 

    Ron

  • That should have prevented everything third-party that windows knows about from starting. Might be some malware at work.

  • I'd try a diagnostic startup

    1) Start|Run|msconfig

    2) On Services tab check "Hide all Microsoft services", then "Disable all"

    3) On Startup tab "Disable all"
