Program called Tukan starts up on reboot - What is it?

March 4, 2014 at 12:47:00
Specs: Windows XP Pro, Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40 GHz
Sometimes when I reboot my XPP pro sys I find, on my taskbar, a program 'Tukan' running. I close it in taskmgr and that may or may not be the end of it. I'm not sure what process accompanies it - looking in taskmgr nothing jumped out at me (i.e. no tukan.exe running). I've searched the web for references but found nothing. Things like this don't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Neither McAfee, Malwarebytes nor Spybot have an issue with it nor detect anything resembling 'Tukan'.

Do you have Roxio installed?

Lets dig deeper & see what we find.

1. Download ZHPDiag from one of these links. Copy & Paste the contents of the log into your next reply.
Screenshots ( SS ) How to install.

(Don't be alarmed if the site is in French, it sometimes happens, the tool will take your system language and allow the download if you get a warning message.)

2. Save the file on your Desktop.

3. Double click on ZHPDiag.exe and follow the installation instructions.

(For Vista and Win 7 users, click right to ensure you execute with admin right)

The tool creates two icons ZHPDiag and ZHPFix.

4. Double click on the short cut ZHPDiag on your Destktop.

5. If you need to change the language, click on the little house, (bottom right) and change to English.

6. Click on the "Configure" button.

7. Click on the Magnifying glass "Default diagnosis with legitimate".

8. Click on "Search" and answer yes if a message appears.

Wait for the tool to finished (maybe a long time) A ZHPDiag log will be on the Desktop.

" Ran the ZHPDiag pgm. sendspace wants a 'to' email addr"
They want your email address, no need to do that.

Use another link that doesn't want your email address, or use Image Uploader.

Once you upload the file, give us the link to that site.

Try this site.

" no link was given to me"

You are missing seeing the link info, so you either need to use Image Uploader or get someone with a better skill level to show you.
