  • DFS popup

    I get this command prompt window that pops open stating a path to DNS.exe.

    i do not have DNS.exe on this server and it is not a domain controller.
    I have Antivirus. Norton's corporate product comes up clean.
    Spybot is clean also.
    Any ideas?

    Re: DFS popup

    Is it DNS as per your post or DFS as per the thread title?

    Can you please explain exactly what problem you're experiencing as it isn't clear from your post.

    A screenshot of the window would be useful.

      Sysinternals autoruns should show you where it is running from (plus anything else that looks suspicious). Link to sysinternals suite in the Misc forum sticky.

      Try an online scanner like Trend as well as your normal AV.
