        Re: net.exe file

        Its better if you can remove it from your machine

        Becuase in one one forum someone has mention that it will effect in the problem

        Its a virus Just see the contents below which was written a post message

        issue regarding this



        I have an issue obviously...... All of the sudden, I have a few new things in my task manager. Namely net.exe and net1.exe. I can disable them fine, but several times when I have done so, Norton Internet Security gets shut down as well, and I am unable to restart it. Now whenever I right click on an application on my desktop (besides My Computer and a few others), the desktop disappears briefly, and then shows back up again as if nothing has happened. If I try to right click on the 2 net files in the Windows\system32 folder the same thing occurs. My web browser is starting to give me issues, and I have just noticed that my Outlook Express is slowing greatly when trying to open.

        I have updated my virus definitions and scanned to no avail. I have also run Ad Aware and Spybot just in case. It seems as though something is causing the havok, but I have no idea where to look to find out what it might be. I really don't want to have to format....... HELP!

        Thank you

          Have you even looked at the google link i provided??

          net.exe is used by logon srcipts etc to map network drives amongts other things.

          I'm not doubting that it COULD be a virus but that is up to the OP to run a scan and to be honest it should be one of the first thing you do when you run into problems.

            What do you want to bet this is a DNS problem and Net.Exe is having problems because of this and slowing the logon process down.
            1 1 was a racehorse.
            2 2 was 1 2.
            1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
            2 2 1 1 2

              Well thats more than likely the problem.

              My guess is that its running via the logon script and the machine cannot connect to the mapped drives.
