Schedulers automatically generating on server due to virus

Created: 29 Apr 2013 • Updated: 29 Apr 2013 | 6 comments


We have a production server running eith Windows 2003. From past many days, schedulers are automatically getting generated on the server. We found that this is hapening due to a virus. We scanned the sytem, deleted the schecdulers, and updated the server with latest AV definition again.
