Does anyone know how to find out what tsr programs were installed by what softare package?
I am looking at a tsr program called gmt in the windows task manager, it seems to be causing problems with speed and video response.

Look At the File

by TheChas In reply to tsr programs

You can usually find out by looking at the exe file itself.

Sometimes, it is in the folder for the parent program.

Or, a right click on the file and a review of the properties will give you clues, if not the name of the software company.

Also, the date can be a good clue as all the files from a given package usually have the same date, or use the install date.

Another thing to try, is to download and run AdAware from www.lavasoft.de
Many unknown TSR's are actually spyware.
