Cannot Kill Smss.exe

Run Security Task Manager to check your smss process 2. Open the PsTools folder and copy pskill.exe to your System32 folder. Tried -t and also tried using taskkill with the /F option. This is NORMAL. have a peek at this web-site

Essential operating system component Seems pretty cool invite some other sites to autoconnect internet and disables taskmanager Ashok Task manager shows smss.exe in windows/system32 as only 348k while the SMSS.EXE in more stack exchange communities company blog Stack Exchange Inbox Reputation and Badges sign up log in tour help Tour Start here for a quick overview of the site Help Center Detailed asdf Lanfeust--" the same like smss.exe but in c:\windows\system folder not in the c:\windows\system32, where you can find the real smss.exe, signed by MS" --+-- mine is, its the only one I've tried all these "process killers", and i'm still stuck with rebooting as my only solution to the problem.

we can not open the command prompt. its not a virus. It’s wonderful for getting rid of infected DLL’s. 1/7/2006 12:41:00 PM by Anonymous # re: Running Windows with No Services Hello Interesting topic.

try setting Deny Write to winlogon.exe to all users of the system including ‘nt authority' called SYSTEM. Without user intervention. just regular Chrome. before Microsoft comes to their senses Are your dual monitors taking up too much space on your desk?

can virus's - spyware cause other programs like nero to not be able to close out? Only virii does that. It most be someway to kill process HARD in windows, like kill -9 in linux, pskill does not help. i don't knowCan't the user 'SYSTEM' or 'LOCAL' kill anything?

Ive just got a payout and I need to talk to some one about structured settlements. Then kill Smss.exe, the Session Manager process. I suspect that both are legimate, but why would there be TWO installed smss.exe ? I found a few articles at http://structured-settlement-payout.com but these only seemed to confuse me.

The spyware was attached to winlogon.exe as a dll, as described above by Henry Skoglund. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/smss.exe.html AGAIN! It suddenly appeared after a browsing session and i isolated the time/date it arrived. Try to kill Smss.exe, Winlogon.exe, Services.exe, Lsass.exe or Csrss.exe and you’ll see this dialog: So if you don’t have it already download Process Explorer.

Just wanted everyone to know 🙂 February 12, 2010 Reply PepJ @ 2:40 pm this doesn't work at all, i put it in system 32 etc and tested it on my Check This Out pfff. magesh babu I finally got it - used Free WinPatrol program at Download.com If located in C:\WINDOWS\system32 its perfectly fine. But you start discussion on COMPLETELY different things (sorry for my English!).

The PNP service, sadly, starts as part of services.exe and thus prevents terminating services.exe (since then pnp service and audio will break). It is possible to define metric spaces from pure topological concepts without the need to define a distance function? See also: Link Saskia Most people have no idea this is one of the core processes of Windows: The Session Manager Subsystem, responsible for creating environment variables, paging files, the winlogon http://ecoflashapps.com/cannot-kill/cannot-kill-rtvscan-exe.html I am not good at these things, just trying to help...

It is best to go from the command line and use taskkill /f /pid and the pid you are trying to kill. Did you download and unzip pskill to the System32 folder…or did you download it somewhere else….DUDE!! One could also write an Autohotkey script which accepts one paramater %1, which runs a command like this: ;Start autoHotkeyProcessKiller.ahk: ;==== Process, close, %1% ;End script -and then invoke that script

AMS It doesn't allow me to access the TaskManager, secondly when I try do delete it from a non system's folder it keeps on reappearing.

I am dead in the water. try reading with your eyes next time. The rough sequence of events is like this: RDP into a Windows 2008 R2 and start working in SQL Management Studio Try to log out without closing SSMS first Screen goes Instead of helping the person you guide him in the wrong direction and confuse the users who also try to find an answer.

April 29, 2009 Reply Mixmax @ 6:15 am I have the same problem. Its a virus.. had a crashed/frozen game (GTA San Andreas) in the background eating up my CPU and RAM. have a peek here tried "pskill -t 3120" (GTA's PID) this POS tells me it successfully killed the program..

Using "pskill -t pid" did the trick, killing the process and its descendants. I know from personal experience that when Asio isn't set up PERFECTLY perfect it can make your computer wig out and do some weird things. vinod May or may not be a virus, it depends if it has been attacked or not. Like all the other comments say actually.

By the way most spyware programs have another one unnamed that re-creates the offending files and makes them hard to get rid of. and its annoying to restart each time it hangs. Reply Nutty @ 7:52 pm @Kevin Joseph Remisoski: Random??? this works.

Located in %SystemRoot%\system32\ martix It IS NOT A VIRUS!! Then hit your windows logo (aka the start button) on your keyboard followed by the pause/break key. Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply. It downloads additional data from that server.

I am grateful for at least that much if it happens to work. Reply Robyn @ 2:03 pm Ok well that was USELESS. If not, and you have tried ntrights several times, try the L2Mfix in the event there are leftovers from a previous VX2 infection. What if I told you that for at least basic functionality like Web surfing and application execution, Windows doesn’t need any services?

March 27, 2009 Reply gunasundari.t @ 12:05 pm after using pskill still running Reply Watching The Net @ 1:34 pm @gunasundari.t I never had that happen. a System file - pay attention people, if it is smss.exe and located in the system32 dir, it should be ok. Alec If not found in system32 then probably a virus. That will allow you to get the best possible performance if you have plenty of memory.
