What is DrsCh.exe?
« on: 09/04/2009 08:03:57 »
Something keeps accessing my Zip drive, for no apparent reason, all the time the computer is running. I found out, by pulling the disk out, that the using program is DrsCh.exe .  What is that? Is is supposed to be there? Does anyone know anything about it?

When you get something like this, the first things to do are to try scanning it with a virus checker and googling it.

When you google DrsCh.exe you'll see that all the hits indicate that it is a trojan, which is a pretty good indication (just one or two hits might be suspect, but when all, or the vast majority of them agree, it's a pretty safe bet)

According to the above there it has some extra problems. Also, another site listed it as a Backdoor-Trojan.
