2 programs asking for internet access

Recommended Posts

A couple of days ago, two programs I've never seen started asking for internet access, something called rsmg.exe and Ipmsv.exe and they're both in Windows/system32 folder. I clicked deny b/c I have no idea what they are, and when I looked on google I found 2 chinese sites for one and nothing for the other one.

should i be worried? can someone tell me what they are (and if I should grant them access)?

Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the <Enter> key.

Click Start.

Open My Computer.

Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.

Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types

Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.

Click Yes to confirm.

Click OK.

Rehide 'hidden files an folders'.

*If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it

*It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may

take a couple of minutes)


When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan


*Leave the autoclean checked


When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See

location (activescan.txt to desktop). Post the contents of the

thanks for your help. I only deleted rsmg.exe, I couldn't find ipmsv.exe, but it still keeps asking to access the internet.

I also went to the site but when I try to scan I get an error. I already restarted like it said, but it still doesn't work. :(

(I tried it again, and when it tries to update before scanning, it seems to get stuck) :(

Okay, please follow these instructions and we'll get rid of the malware you have:


Please download HijackThis! from here:



Put it in a permanent folder (it makes backups) by doing this:

Click My Computer, then C:\

In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.

That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or

"HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there,

and double click to run it.


Click on "Do a system scan and save logfile". The logfile will be saved to



Start a new topic in our HJT forms



Copy and paste the HJT log from notepad in that new topic


Please be patient as we have a lot of people with malware infections

and all of our HJT Trusted Advisors work on many

forums :adios:


DO NOT post your HJT log in this
