Can you end the program aeagea.exe? It looks dodgey to me. Start up in safe mode.

Hi,

I have had a look on a couple of the sites that list standard programs that appear in task manager and cannot find this listed.

As David said it doesn't look right to me either.

aeagea.exe?

That doesn't sound too nifty; it certainly isn't a basic task. Is it System or you?

Do you have any Firewalls, Anti-Viruses, Special Writing Packages - although I doubt it could be anything like that - just doesn't sound right!

Installed any dodgey stuff? Divx Player? I don't know any more off the top of my head!

If it were me, I'd just reinstall Windows! But thats just me (I like sorting out the system and installing all the updates! I'm really sad !)

Installing Windows again is not too hard, or indeed arguous, but it always has to be a last resort!

Default found a solution

there is a file in C:/Windows/system32 called aeagea.exe (is a hidden file) delete it!
while your at it, delete AEAGEA.EXE-1B528188.pf in C:/Windows/Prefetch

And i think you might have gotten this from divX (don't hold me accountable for telling you that, its just a hunch)

some other programs that it *might* be:
maya
SuperDVD Recorder
other DVD ripping programs
