Is Cm106eye.exe A Vista Home 64 Process
» I was looking through my running processes when i noticed a process entitled CM106eye.exe. I have been searching the internet and I cannot find any useful information on this process whatsoever. The part that irks me is the file is located in my windows system folder, alongside cm106.ini, and dlap.pfx. Are any or all of these windows vista 64 home files?
To determine whether a system file is missing or not, I may use Dashboard menu of DLL Suite. Just click on it and its arrowhead will be turned downward, and then click on the Scan DLL Errors button, DLL Suite will download your needed dll file including any exe file to replace the missing file in your computer. With DLL Suite's Fix Missing DLL, DLL missing, not found, could not be found, failed to load, runtime, startup errors and more PC problems caused by DLL files will never become problems any longer. Of course, you can use it to check Cm106eye.exe for its legitimate presence for windows 7, windows 8, window xp and vista.
It can be also used to deal with the virus infection like Trojan:Win32/Agent.AAQ.

It checks computers running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 for infections by specific, prevalent malicious software—including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom—and helps remove any infection found. When the detection and removal process is complete, the tool displays a report describing the outcome, including which, if any, malicious software was detected and removed.
- SHANNON WASHINGTON replied on January 16, 2013: » I let the malicious software removal tool run, and it found no threats. I attempted to removed the files myself, and they required permissions... which further increased the belief that it was some sort of malware.
However, I was able to simultaneously end the process, and mass delete the related files in the folder.. so far there has been no sign of it popping back up.
- CRISEN MCKENZIE replied on January 16, 2013: » Like you stated just watch for any error's or problems since removing that file/folder. If you do have any problems I would suggest performing a restore point prior to removing that.
Running the System Restore utility…
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2. Click Continue or provide Administrator credentials if necessary.
3. Click Choose a different restore point, and then click Next.
4. Select a Date and Time prior to first sign of the issue you've described.
5. If the date you need is in excess of (5) days click the Show restore points older than 5 days check box.

The driver for my headset can be found on Tritton's webpage http://support.trittontechnologies.com/supportsuite/index.php?_m=downloads&_a=view&parentcategoryid=16&pcid=1&nav=0,1 You can find Cm106eye.exe inside the archive at /AXPCPRO_v188.8.131.52/VISTA/SoftwareDriver/DLL/Cm106eye.exe
Do you use a headset? Do you have a set of USB speakers? Also check the ini file in the same folder as Cm106eye.exe on your system, it will probably tell you for what device the driver is used.
