Its not a windows file and should not be in the system 32 folder.

Just delete it.

This is the third thread you've started about the same topic - I presume you haven't yet got Task Manager to run? Lshrpn.exe can be part of the Hupigon13 Trojan, and SpyBot S&D is one of the few programs that will detect it. However, it cannot easily be deleted, and if you just delete as suggested above it will most likely come straight back.

If you read this link it will give you some idea what you may be up against, and if you scroll down to:

"Apparently, the Hupigon source code was released to public and there are many variants out there. I will post the Windows script (.bat) below so that if anyone is infected with this hard-to-remove trojan, I hope it will make it a little easy for you".

you will find a suggested solution. It is a very involved process, and the preparation must be followed to the letter if it is to work.

Good luck

It sounds to me as if you haven't done the prework - as I said the preparation is very important before you get to locating cmd.exe

During that you need to show file extensions as part of the process of showing hidden files - this shows you how

Make sure you back up your system before you start, but if you are not happy tackling this yourself you should post a log on the HijackThis forum as shown on my first link.
