I get a "can't terminate program" when I shut down after I VPN into my office from the admin account on my PC at home.
It does not happen when I VPN from the normal "Power User" account that I usualy use.


The program is called "Proxy Desktop"
I can't see it in Task Manager and no processes seem to have names that sound like they are it.

I googled "Proxy Desktop" and came up with a lot of German hack sites.
Plus one reference to a discussion of a possible IIS virus.

Could our IIS server at work have a virus that is trying to find another IIS server on my computer?

thanks,
chuck

2K or XP?

How are you connecting (software/medium)?

Thanks for the response.

Forgot to give much info didn't I?:o

My home machine W2k. Using Remote Desktop client from an XP disk.

Work machine XP with remote turned on.

Connecting through my straight (no pppoe) tcp/ip 1024/128 dsl connection.

I suppose it could be that that the Remote Desktop has some component called Proxy Desktop that is crashing when I log off.
But it's not documented that way.

thanks,
chuck
