ALG.EXE How many are ok on system? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I ran a search on alg.exe and came up with the following files in the these locations (Note: I typed in exactly what Search Results displayed):

    ALG.EXE located in C:\I386
    alg.exe located in C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$
    ALG.EXE-03A6BBFO.pf located in C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
    alg.exe located in C:WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    alg.exe located in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

    The only thing I know for sure is the last entry in the System32 folder is correct. I am not sure of the other ones.
    Can anyone help?
