Shutdown process

When I shut down or do a restart, I get an POPUP error message stating that "End Program - BRNIPMON - Program is not responding." The shutdown process will then stall there and I have to manually click the "End Process" button to continue the shutdown.

I can not locate any files on my system that are named BRNIPMON.EXE nor can I find any reference to a program that is running this process. I have checked various sites and have seen this file referenced as "C:\Program Files\Brownie\Brnipmon.exe" in HiJackThis log files. I have no such directory or file anywhere on my machine. How do I remove the reference to this non-existent program, from the shutdown sequence?

I suppose you already have hidden and system files showing in folder options (tools menu of windows explorer).

You might want to post this in the Security and Virus area instead of here.

Disable System Restore. Download and install Malwarebytes. Run a full scan, and then delete all items detected.
