On logging into my account in windows XP sp3 I am getting an error message which says that it can't handle wcpm.eso
I have done an internet search which suggests it's malware and must be destroyed - by the website's software - so I have avoided that. Malwarebytes has not touched it.
I have searched PCadvisor forums and there is no reference to it.
I have seached the registry and found three entries which I modified by removing the value wcpm.eso which was present. On rebooting all the icons and the task bar had disappeared! So I had to re-install the back up of the registry I had (thankfully) made. Which put the icons (shortcuts) back and the task bar.

Does anyone know anything about wcpm.eso which would help me determine a suitable course of action for wcpm.eso?

This a comparatively recent Trojan - try downloading and running Trojan Remover - it has a 30 day trial period and is fully workable during that time. click here

Mat Alan - Sea Urchin - A RED warning for me also on first link.

OH WELL what can i say..... ya win some, ya loose some....

I have just clicked the link and it takes me straight in, there are no adverse effects from this site and if my works PC can get to it i would consider it as safe as any other normal website.
It is a shame that the site does not really offer a lot of info but as the person who has the infection has not tried the site i don't suppose it matters much...
