Ofex.exe Stopped Working In Windows

» The ofex.exe I found relating to a video. I tried to uninstall it but one file was zipped and stated that I was not authorized to delete it. I don't think that it is a trojan virus because I have run avast scans a few times and it never shows up. The message I get is that ofex.exe has stopped working in windows-A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly-Windows will notify you when a solution is found.

» EXE files allow users to launch programs without needing additional software on the user's computer special software. The exe file is one of the most useful types of files precisely because it runs programs; however, it can be used as a delivery system for viruses or other malicious programs. Viruses often reside to .exe files, which are then re-named to resemble common software packages. They can be running in the background, infecting or compromising the computer. A file whose name ends in ".exe" is really a program that when opened causes the operating system to run the program. It is very important to scan an EXE file before opening it, and you should never open an EXE file if you don't know or trust its source.

Malware bundles itself with legitimate software, or in Trojans, which will disguises itself as a normal exe file or program to trick users into downloading and installing it. Computers that are infected with malware/virus (Trojan:Win32/Startpage.JP) can exhibit any of the following symptoms: Increased CPU usage; Appearance of strange files, programs, or desktop icons; Slow computer or web browser speeds; Problems connecting to networks; Freezing or crashing; Modified or deleted files.

In case that an exe file is infected with virus or malware, the safest and quickest approach, without being bothered to reinstall Windows, is to use a professional repair tool. It is for this purpose that DLL Suite is released. DLL Suite allows our users to get rid of the exe virus infection annoyance once for all, just because it has a special feature of Fix EXE Virus.

    That sounds familiarly like a trojan virus. If you have any IT literate friends, I suggest you get some help help defeating it.

I could delete 3 files but the one I could not delete was zipped and when I tried - the message I got was that I was not authorized to delete it. Also, someone suggested that it sounded like a trojan virus. I have run Avast scans several times and even scanned it and no threat was found.

  3. MICHAEL COHEN replied on January 18, 2013: » I see that you first posted on this in August. Its a malware / trojan, try malwarebytes, free version,

    You could also replace Avast with Hit Malware.
