temp2.exe Starts When Computer Starts

by on October 10, 2007

Q: When I turn on my computer I get a message saying “c:\windows\system32\temp2.exe caused a problem would you like to save a dump file” comes up. Is there anything I can do to stop this?

A: This file is actually associated with the virus/worm called IRC.MOOMMA.WORM so you will need to scan your system for viruses. We suggest using HouseCall for web based scanning in a pinch like this but you should really have AVG installed and running all the time. Both services have free options and are very easy to use. This should solve the issue related to this program trying to start on boot and you should consider yourself lucky that the program is crashing or else it would be doing harm to all your fellow computers on the internet so please install a virus scan program as soon as possible to keep yourself protected.
