Can't say Ive heard of this file. Its not on Google or Yahoo.

Umm if u have XP, go to start/run type in msconfig.

Go to the startup tab. Does it show in here?? if so, what folder does it load from??

I'm running 98,and have tried that in msconfig,but it keeps on coming back,it won't even shut down.It is in the windows\system folder,and only appeared about a month ago,and no,I can't think of anything I have done to load it on,purposely or not.

Ok. Go to start/run type regedit.

Search for fracgann.exe, or fracgann in the registry.

Edit menu / find, or Ctrl F while in regedit.

If it appears, delete every instance of it, then reboot. Then see if it comes back.

Hmm... not sure that's the best idea. Arbitrarily deleting registry entries by a computer novice prob isn't wise this early in the game.

Are you sure that spelling of that process name is absolutely correct?

True ninja, but since he doesnt know what it is lol it wont hurt anything. And it wont go away. It hangs round like a bad smell.
