PING.EXE ... Don't post unrelated


Recommended Posts

I just removed a virus a day ago. I suppose this is the last of it...

No matter what I'm doing I will get the message "TCP/IP.exe 'or PING.EXE' has stopped working" and proceed to terminate or check for solution ; as it prompts me to. I will then go to check my task manger and see the process is still running and not to my surprise, it is using mass amounts of my PC's memory. I try to terminate the process by hand in the task manger and it works, but it reappears almost immediately( only using about 3k instead of 76-90k of memory.

I'm not sure what this is saying about the security of my computer or the stability of my PC. I haven't seen any pop-ups or advertisements, though.

How can I stop this from happening so often and what is the purpose of the process PING.EXE?

I have malaware-bytes pro and MSE. It seems to be an effective combo.

Any actual related feedback would be appreciated. It seems all the threads I have read are just diluted crap.
