Lost Property Window and MP3W.EXE
Date: Mon, 1 Nov 2004 19:43:02 -0800
I have noticed a process in the Task Manager called MP3W.EXE running up to
95-98% of my CPU cycles almost constantly. I have run AdWare and Norton's
Antivirus to detemine if this was a foreign file to no avail. To further
investigate, I tried to isolate the program through the Services folder by
changing through the properties most services running as "Automatic" to
"Manual" and then stopping them. With most of my services now "Stopped" and
the MP3W file still running, I have found I can't change the properties from
Manual to Automate because the property window will not display. I have
tried to reload Windows 2000 Prof to resolve my dilemna but Windows installer
says there is another installation in process and terminates.
I have searched all hard drives for MP3W.EXE using Explorer Find but to no
I fear I have compounded the problem and now can't tell if this MP3W is a
virus or a system file. Is there anything I can do to resolve this
