A process that won't let me eject my iPod

By the method of killing off each process so I could see when I could finally close my mass storage device correctly, it seems that Crypserv.exe is holding on.

I suspect mallware.

Where do I go to find out how to kill this?

Googling alarms me. Who can I genuinely trust (besides you guys) to work out how to kill this annoying process for good?

EDIT: I am really not sure if I've posted this in the right forum. If a mod moves it can you please tell me where? BW limited at the moment so it takes ages to change to each forum.

Are you running any encryption software?

Yep Midnighter he sure is using encryption software Crypkey according to the process library.

http://www.auditmypc.com/process/crypserv.asp

"The crypserv.exe process is used by applications that employ the CrypKey copy protection system. If you disable this process any software that uses Cpykey will not work."

So I guess as long as you are using this software it's going to keep grabbing your ipod.

There is no suggestion that this process is any kind of bug.

Cool. Yeah, the Crypserv.exe suggested encryption software to me, but I've been too exhausted to bother looking it up. Heh, I was right, cool. :P

Hi guys... sorry busy but had read Middy's comment and had thought about it.

Thanks for that bowiee (so I can trust *those* guys then?)

I have a Nortel Networks VPN prog that I used on my home PC way back that might be the culprit. I noticed that my attempt to install VMware the other day had left stuff on my PC that looked similar so I am wondering if this also would be affected (why in hell does VMware need such a setup? Can't I get a stand alone thingie? I haven't really properly played with it though.)

I know to just kill it before I remove my iPod. I wonder if I could set up a scipt to run from my desktop called "kill Crypserv" that I could save 3 key presses, finding the wretched thing in amongst the mess and two mouse clicks.

Idle musings. Too much like work and this is my play machine. Interesting to know how this works.

Yo Catmosphere.

love the avatar, I have Doki and Nabi as my MSN pic :D

What you can do is open RUN and type

services.msc

go thorugh the list and try to find which one is launching the application in question.
You can then set it to 'manual' (wont startup unless specifically called) or 'disabled' (wont start up) I recommend trying fully disabled first.

If it turns out its not a service, RUN again, and check inside

MSCONFIG

Starup tab, see if you can find where its opening from. untick it.

And last and most severe. You can do 2 things.

Open Regedit (RUN, REGEDIT) and 'find' RunOnce. Above that folder will be one called 'run' check both of these for a string that mentions the program. 'export it' (so you can restore it) and then delete it.

You could also use a program called HIJACKTHIS! to do this in a safer way. it lists everyhting that runs with your PC (good and bad) and lets you remove anything. (if you use this and see anyhting says 'file missing' remove it and you'll often see performance increases)

Hope that helped.
