Hi all,
yesterday i was performing some routing maintenance on my pc, and i noticed there was an evernt log showing an error of an application that was stored in the path. (Please note i didnt mistype VLC).
C:\Users\{myuser}\Appdata\roaming\LVC\lvc.exe
It was always giving me an error code 0x0000005. I am worried if this is some sort of virus.
when i checked with a windows defender and avg i got no virus. It was also using the visual basic command line script process when i checked task manager.
What else could i do to check out the problem?
Thanks

EDIT: I tried searching online, but i found no results

Searching with Startpage shows one link to a fix for some virus and a couple of links to Garmin GPS software. Nothing else of substance.
Lycos found an article about an old Server 2000 bug and a Lee Van Clief screensaver.
I'd try every search engine you can think of until something makes sense.

Did you search the registry for "lvc.exe" or check HKCU\Software or HKLM\Software for an LVC key? That might shed more light on the problem.
