What is this?

In recent days a file GMT.exe has started to perform illegal operations when I boot up slowing down the process. As I'm sure you all know, this is a GAIN Publishing file but what is GAIN and why do I have it? More importantly, can I chuck it or will it mess something up?

Download Adaware click here and run it, that should get rid of it for you. Also checkout msconfig and make sure it's not listed in there, if it is untick it's entry and reboot.

I believe GMT.exe is a file associated with the Gator form filler. I have it on my computer as it fills in address details, stores login details and so on. On my computer the GMT.exe. file is found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT.

I'd say it is save to delete if you didn't download it deliberately - but as mentioned, I'm not an expert and it may be better to wait until someone with more knowledge comes to your rescue!
