Post by kreator on Mon Jan 21, 2008 10:59 am

Shift + Del on

1. IO.SYS
2. MSDOS.SYS
3. explorer.exe and many more......

will the OS crash on reboot?///


I have 2 files in my pendrive : explorer.exe and isetup.exe .....

they are present in C:\Windows .... too or C:\Windows\system32.....

now whenever I delete those files from my pendrive they again reoccur.....

they are not virus as scanned by Kaspersky AV.....

Many of the processes that are running are necessary for windows to run and if you close them Windows won't behave like it should. Generally you could try closing things as long as your user name is not SYSTEM.

If you want, could go to www.processlibrary.com and check and see which process can be disabled or removed under the "Recommendations" area.
E.g.:
Explorer.exe should not be disabled, required for essential applications to work properly

These are files required by the system to run it is impossible for the system to operate without them. It is not necessary to remove them.
