How do I.....

...find out what programme is trying to open a certain .exe file?

My antivirus software found a trojan in an "openme.exe" file in my windows/system/ directory, which I had to delete.

But now, each time windows starts, I get an error saying that it is looking for the "openme.exe" file!

Any ideas?

Cheers

go to start, run, and then type msconfig. Check all tabs for anything related to openme.exe and then deactivate it. save, and then reboot. that should solve the problem (this problem was already talked here, wasn't it?)

Sorry if this has already been discussed before, but I tried msconfig, and I can't see anything there that calls up this "openme.exe".

Is there a third party programme or other windows feature I should try?

Cheers

Some trojans will place themselves in the .ini files too... So do this: Start > Run > type: "sysedit" and click OK.

Go through all the windows, and search for your file in each of them. When you fond the line, you can safely delete it.

It could also be in the registry. So run regedit, and do a full search starting at the root. Delete any occurence of the program (be carefull here, do backups like the guy above said...)
