    Why not just use the 'search' function built into explorer?

    Check this site for a program called Process Explorer:

    Also check here for a program called F-port

    Just "deleting" the file may not be the answer. I am assuming finding what the exe belongs to and where it resides yo will remove what ever it belongs to as well as any registry links to it.

    It is a pity that M$ didn't allow a optional column of "file location".. but then the third part software ppl would not be needed then would they .. huh?
