    I have a window 7 computer. lately I constantly got PING.EXE * 32 running in my computer, it is about TCP/IP Ping Command.

    It runs for a while, then takes so much memory and force my computer shut down over and over.

    I use anti virus software scan, it couldn't find anything. I don't know how to stop the PING.EXE * 32 running like that.

    Anyone can help?

    What we should do for that?

    How can we stop it running? I use task manager, end it, then come back again and again. I guess I need to stop the .exe.

    I had to use safe mod early because my computer acted like idiot. When I use safe mod, some software didn't work well. Also audio seems not working under safe mod here.

    Try a rootkit revealer and then use unlocker to delete it and get a good copy from the net.
