Hi, sorry about the delay. I have looked through your log. I have a few queries for you....

1. Have you deliberately installed the Ask Toolbar? It's fine if you have but sometimes it can be known to install itself surrepticiously.
2. Do you recognise the IP addresses and as belonging to your ISP which appears to be a Polish network, TPNET?
3. Your topic title mentioned mpclauncher.exe, where was this seen and why is it causing concern?
4. Do you appear to actually be having any problems?

Thanks, please get back to me with those answers.

Hi. Fortunately, I solved my problem. I found mpclauncher in my k-lite mega codec pack and I deleted it. I had used this codeck pack before without any problem, but probably when I downloaded real player, it updated automatically and mpclauncher appeaered with new codecs. Do you think I'm right? Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for your response. If you are satisfied that your problems are solved then I will close the topic. Is this the case? If not, and you wish to continue then please answer the questions I asked above.
In regards to question no.3 I was referring to where you saw this file mentioned as a problem?
Please get back to me.

Mpclauncher.exe seemed to be a problem for me, because as I started to get some announcment about it on my computer, my system slowed down. I also checked it by google and I noticed, that more people had the same problem with this and I was advised to use your help to solve this problem. Since I've deleted that folder from my comuputer, everything runs ok, so I'm satisfied and we can close this topic. Thanks for your help and good day;)
