Possible malicous program.


OK, well I just installed Limewire pro and I started downloading a few songs and my system started flipping out, 100% CPU usage and the computer was barley responding, I managed to get Task Manager opend and I viewed the processes to see what was going on..Well, there were two seemingly identical .exe programs called dumprep.exe that were using 100 percent of my CPU and 39,XXX,XXX K of memory each, naturally I ended them both and my system came right back.

So, anyone have any idea what this is, I have never heard of it, as I type I am running Spy Bot, AD SE, and ZAP, to try and detect this thing.

Dumprep.exe (Dump Report Utility) is the logging software in Windows that records when there is an error. I had a similar problem before myself. To disable it go to control panel/system/advanced/error reporting and check the box to disable error logging.

BSODs and OS crashes usually. This will cause Windows to generate a dump of the memory which might have caused the crash to send it to Redmond, dumprep makes this memory dump.

Application crashes (depending on your settings, I think), BSODs, and system crashes.

That's what you get for using Limewire and practicing unsafe sex. Do be sure to practice safe(er) P2P.
