Re: What launches dwm.exe virus
Yes, dwm.exe is in the msconfig startup tag, but ...
Probably doing something wrong here. I tried to uncheck that entry, but it indicates that I don't have permission. I tried to log on as Administrator (change logons, cntrl alt delete at Welcome page), but nothing happens. It still logs me on with my standard user name. I checked my logons in the Control Panel. There is only one entry, my standard user name, and it is listed as the computer administrator.
BTW, the message I get when I try to exit msconfig after unchecking the dwm.exe entry is "An Access Denial error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes".
Any additional help would be greatly appreciated. Not very MS-fluent, obviously. Just an old UNIX programmer, long out of the industry.
