Default exec.exe ???

Hello


I have (2) exec.exe running in the Task Manager. Should I be concerned about it and delete one or both....??




Thanks

Try running spyware and adware prigrams such as Spyware s&d, and Ad-aware, If they find something then delete it, If they don't u should be fine

yah, but it's almost never you see the exact .exe running in the task bar....if you do , this is a flag that there is something fishy with it....Virus or spyware.
