  1. Hi I'm a system integrator consultant, I'm involved in pc deployments and system convertions like from NT to AD etc.

    I have a system that is running windows xp with sp2, when I try to acess any application it is slow as a turtle to get my either web or any explorer window or applications up. I've notice that when I check the task manager it show's me that it is running a task called net.exe. When I kill this proccess my system goes back to working at nornal pace. any help around this subject. I thing I'm going to put a batch file in the startup folder to kill this process what does anybody thing about this, any advice?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to TechSpot. :wave:

    It's nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    net.exe can be a legitimate file, which you can use to start and stop Windows services. However, it might be malicious. Please go and read this. Then open a new thread in our Security and the Web forum, describe your problem, and attach the HJT log.
