    Hi

    Please could you tell me what these are and if necessary how to safely get rid of them, because my security centre isnt.

    (a) imapi.exe

    (b) acrord32.exe

    (c) acrord32info.exe

    My security scans say there are no issues now but I did have an instance of ultrasurf yesterday.

    When I log into Motorhome Fun and into Facebook the page literally shakes from left to right.

    I am very computer literate so any help you can give would be much appreciated as I dont even know what are safe or not safe removal tools from the many listed on google.

    Many thanks in advance for all your technological help

    Google tells all - just enter imapi.exe into and the first hit says it's part of windows.
    acrord looks harmless and needed.

    acrord32into seems to test to see if your acrord32 is genuine. You could try it.

    No worries really.

    Hi ourcampersbeentrashed,

    I think they are all genuine and nothing to worry about.

    Check this link for info about imapi.exe http://www.file.net/process/imapi.exe.html

    acrord.exe is an Adobe Acrobat Acrobat Reader program.

    I use a very good free program for info about what is running on my system. It also alerts users if a new program has been installed and asks for permission to run.

    It is called Winpatrol and it may be downloaded from here http://www.winpatrol.com/
