Post How to remove or uninstall

I recently found a copy of ioftpd running on my server. It shouldnt be there because I didnt install it. I am having trouble removing it. I have deleted the dir and removed from the registry, but it still shows up as a running service in the task manager and is still blocking my default ftp application. I have tried stopping the service within Services but get an error that basically says that it can not stop the service. I am running MS Win 2k. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

mouton or inicom or someone working here will want a copy of that exe before you delete it (they can find out who owns it).
beyond that i can't help, but just so you can read this before you somehow figure out how to delete it in the meantime...

are you killing exe or doing 'net stop <service>' ? cos if youre just killing the exe, chances are its installed with firedaemon, try 'net start' to see if theres any suspect service names :/

my ten cents worth...

Thumbs up

Thanks ALL, for your input.
I'd like to take a few steps back and explain a few more things about this

...BTW I did send a zipped dir to mouton, however now that I have taken a closer look at the dir myself I don't see an .exe in it.
Using a program called Sec Task Man, which gives more detail than the built in task manager, infact the builtin task manager doesnt even show an entry for this running process, I see that ioFTPD.exe is categorized as a hidden program.
It also shows the program starts from khmer.exe. I did a search for "khmer" and "ioftp" in the sys registry and have found several entries for both. However, aside from the dir I found and sent to mouton, I havent found any .exe files with either of these names. Im not quite sure what this all means but I know either of these apps should not be on this system. Im not sure if you will be able to see these, but I have attached screen shots of the sec task man which shows details of ioftpd.exe as a hidden process, another that shows a registry key that points to "khmer.exe", and below I have the registry entry I found for "khmer.exe". Notice how SYSTEM32 and MANAGER are incorrectly spelt.

Once again thanks in advance, infact just going through the motions within this forum has helped. I now see clearly what I need to do.

Your second screenshot shows a possible path for khmer.exe. Have you found this .exe yet ? If you haven't, I suggest browsing dirs near this one ; the ioFTPD.exe might be there.
The most interesting file for us is "ioFTPD.exe" because it is watermarked and can help us to find who put it on your server.
I hope you'll be able to clean your server soon ; good luck

the path in the second picture to khmer.exe will show up as a shortcut to the recycler itself (via windows), so you need to enter the path via cmd line, path being Recycled.{blah5643654} <- that will be the shortcut code, so double clicking will take you to whatever it refers to, probably back to recycler root, or recycler control panel.
