net and cmd running in task manager

By dliby ·
I have Windows XP sp2 workstations running in a Domain. after they start I see that cmd.exe and net.exe are running in the task manager. What could cause this to happen? Can I set them to turn off automatically?

Sounds like you have a virus or malware running.

Those shouldn't show up as running in applications or processes unless you have them open.

Probably it?s a virus infection in those files because they can?t run without start those applications. Boot in safe mode and see if there are still running. If not run the antivirus software. In other case (still run) boot from a boot CD with antivirus installed on there and clean your HDD.
