    I need help with this issue, after rebooting my Windows 8, I get this pop-up message :

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\HKCMD.EXE <<<<< This was in all Caps, so this is why I did it this way.

    Windows Cannot Find.( on the pop-up )

    hello i goggled the error and got this answer .

    quote-"hkcmd.exe" is Intel's "extreme" grahics hot key interceptor. If you never use the Intel hotkeys, you can go to Control Panel > Intel Extreme Graphics > Hot Keys and turn them off.

    David hi.. I downloaded the suggested program, then I had to update it , to get the latest version, I have
    removed the suggested exe. above , so hoping those won't show again....there were 5 hijacks on the
    scanned list.. I removed those also.

    I have a question here if you don't mind me asking?
    Would you suggest , I use this program instead of Malwarebytes, for (making sure malware, isn't a problem
    on my pc ) I found it to be quite easy for me to use ?
    I am at a loss when things like this happen.
    Thanks so much for your reply and help.

    Don't get rid of Malwarebytes, it's one of the best Spyware removal tools.

    Ztrucker has more information on Malwarebytes than I do.

    I have never used it.

    I rely on Avast.
    Sometimes TrendMicro House Call & some others.
    I don't rely on one single scanner.

    I use only 1 antivirus-Avast.
    2 would cause conflicts.

    I would suggest using both if there are no conflicts.
