  • Odd message when logging into SBS 2003 Standard Edition Server

    I am getting the following error message when logging into my SBS 2003 Standard Edition Server. Exchange 2003 w/ SP2 installed. Windows Server 2003 SP2 also installed. I try to Google the "Exchange2007Info.exe" but find nothing of the sort. Anyone ever see this?


    Exchange2007Info.exe - .NET Framework Initialization Error
    ---------------------------
    To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework:


    v2.0.50727

    Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework.

    Pretty clear what the problem is, but I also have never heard of Exchange2007Info.exe - since this thread is the only Google result I would have to suspect this isn't above board,

    As you're running Exchange 03, there's a chance this is a virus. What antivirus / antimalware are you using? Is your server behind a decent firewall? Is there anything related to this in the event logs, most importantly dating from when you first started seeing this error.

      In additon to what Gareth states try running up autoruns from the sysinternals toolset on Microsofts website. (LINK)
      This should show us where it is coming from (the logon tab is the likely one to see it)

        AVG AV 8.0
        Firewall is a Sonicwall TZ190

        I am going to try Autoruns & Process Explorer to look further into the source. I will report back

          AVG is up to date? What anti-malware are you running? Perform a full scan with both.

          Also, can you search for Exchange1007Info.exe and post the path to the executable?

              You have probably already deleted it from Temp, if not then probably best to do so. May be worth looking into installing something like Windows Defender as well. Group policy aware, and updated through WSUS with everything else, and has a pretty small footprint.

                Well I found out it is some script another administrator created, sorry about bothering you guys.

                  Documentation is key!
                  Glad it wasn't serious in the end, thanks for posting back the results.
