    Each time I start my computer a programme skn.exe tries to start. I have searched Google but don't understand why this tries to start as I dont remember where it has come from.
    Any ideas please.

    Seems to be part of some keygen download. Plenty of sites on Google about it though.

    If you want to remove it which i suspect you do, go START > SEARCH click on Files and Folders >type in the name of the file >click it to search C drive then delete it.

    Alternatively you can Ctrl Alt Del which will open Task Manager > click on PROCESSES tab and look for it there. You can then highlight it and click END PROCESS.

    Found it if anyone interested.

    I recently went into the network setup wizard & was asked if I wanted to use a pen drive to make it easy to set up on the network on other computers. I said yes and seemingly this created the file so that each time the computer starts it looks for this file to set up the network.
    I found this eventually on a forum (not motorhome fun) I found on Google. I guess it worry me any more.
