Question:

What is alg.exe? Is alg.exe spyware or a virus?

Answer:

alg.exe is harmless. It means Application Layer Gateway Service and is provided by Microsoft as part of the firewall in Windows (XP?) or ICS (internet connection sharing).

The original alg.exe file is located in the c:\windows\System32 folder. If your copy is located elsewhere, you probably are looking at a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

The Windows process manager does not tell you the location of your alg.exe (you might have more than one on your hard disk).

Try this process manager instead - it will display the full information on all processes:

Hi I have found an alg.exe in c:\windows and it hides itself. It also sends large ammounts of data on DSL and it stops other users from connecting to the PC via LAN and e-mail time-out occur.

=) I stopped. And I have no idea why. Ok, I'm lying. I've had a ton of farliues in my life recently: not doing well in school, didn't get a promotion (and am now finding it hard to not be miserable at work), wondering if my relationship will make it, and I WANT to write about it. But I can't until I can see the light in all of this b/c the last thing I want is a pissy blog. I admire that you keep trucking through knowing that you probably experience bad times too, but none of your posts come across negative. I think if I were a better writer, I could find something else to blog about, or a find a less negative way of approaching my life situation at the moment. You seem to be able to do this, which shows that in the end, your persistence in writing has indeed made you a very good writer. (and I understand not wanting to miss the connections with people, I'm still wondering if semi-charmed wife is doing okay but too shy to email and ask!) http://hsqjqurukr.com [url= http://cdnnsg.com]c..nnsg[/url] [link= http://xvgalmkqztz...ztz[/link]
