boost_interprocess
« on: December 03, 2013, 09:59:14 PM »
Hi,

I need help in identifying what boost_interprocess is?  I found this folder in C: ProgramData and it has 2 files:  Nobu64AgentService & Nobu64TrayIcon.  Each file is 21 kb in size.   I don't know if it is a virus but the little bit of research I did seems to point in that direction.

Cheers,
Janice

follow guide and attach the requested logs (not copy and paste) http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0

we need Malwarebytes / OTL / aswMBR

when done a malware expert will check the logs

Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.

HI,

I have attached Malewarebytes and OTL but not aswMBR since I am running Windows 8.1 and it is not compatible with Win 8 yet. Is there an alternative aswMBR?

Cheers,
Janice

Hi there is no real requirement for an MBR check with windows 8 as it uses EUFI and not the MBR http://anewdomain.net/2013/07/23/windows-8-safe-secure-boot-and-eufi-deep-dive-how-it-works/

Boost interprocess is generally bad, although I have had a few gamers complain when I remove it ??? 

How is the computer behaving generally ?

Hi essexboy,

I don't really notice anything out of the ordinary.  Its just that I found that folder that I don't think should be there.

Cheers,
Janice

Come to think of it my computer has crashed a few times on and off.  Also I have these two entries in HKCU/Software:  OMUPH & WEDLMNGR both of which I don't recall seeing before.

They may be related to old software that did not uninstall properly, the registry is usually littered with old software references.  With the crashes is it when you are doing anything specific or just totally random ?

Okay, that's good!

I think it has crashed randomly and it was three or four times last week but seems okay so far this week.  I'm really not sure, other than thinking "hmm I wonder what this is about" and then moving on & forgetting about it.

Not really, as it is inactive, you can manually delete it :)

Any further problems with BSOD ?

Okay I will delete it.  No problem since last week or so with BSOD so I'll keep an eye out to see if it happens again and check out what I would be doing at that time to make it crash.

Thanks for your help, very much appreciated!

Janice

Hi essexboy,

I can't remove it.  See att'd.  I have no idea what folder or file is using it.
