Dear All

I have been having a problem with a game I recently brought which refuses to
run as it keeps giving me a message stating that I have a debugger running.
After a lot of discussion with the games newsgroup we have potentially
narrowed it down to the fact that I have a process running called
Inetinfo.exe which the expert seems to think is a trogan called Tilebot.a
He gave me some advice on how to track it down and delete it, unfortunately
the progam I can did not detect it on my system at all.
I was therefore directed to you guys to see if you could give me any further
guidance as to what may be happening.
I run Windows XP professional on an AMD system using a Nvidia graphics card
and on board sound system on an Asus motherboard. Any ideas please as I have
had this game for some time and as yet have not been able to play it.
Incidently the game runs perfectly happily on my works pc which does not
have this Inetinfo.exe as a running process

Right clock on My Computer, select MANAGE, expand the "Services and
Applications" tree, then select "Services", then look for the following:

"IIS Admin"
"World Wide Web Publishing"

If you have these, then you have IIS Installed - you can also check the
Windows Components to see if you installed it.

I actually found it in windows components and unchecked the box, unloaded
the files and re-booted. Unfortunately it has not made an atom of difference
to the game not running. This is after unistalling the game and re-installing
it.
Any other suggestions as to why I am still geting this message about a
debugger running

INETINFO.exe is the process used by IIS. It is not a virus.

However, unless you're hosting a website or running a web application
you do not need it. So just end it and try your game again.

I don't see how that process would affect gameplay. Best thing to do
is open Task Manager and kill one process at a time whilst trying your
game after you kill each process. When the game starts successfully
you will know whic process is causing the trouble.

Since I don't know what game, it's a little hard to say, but, you've not
said if you ran the AV and any of the Spyware removal tools that I
posted links too?

If you had a possible virus, and you had IIS installed and didn't know
about it, you might have other problems you don't see yet.

Install AdAwareSE and SpyBot Search & Destroy and update them, then run
them in SAFE MODE and let them clean everything - make sure that you run
AdAware SE with a FULL SCAN.

What AV software are you running?

I'm running AVG anit-virus and ad-ware already, but not running spybot. I
can install tonight when I get home and run both in safe mode as you state
and see what i get.
The game I'm trying to run is relatively modern and is called Pirates of the
Caribbean.
My harsd drive is partitioned into 5 units, with C running the main
processes and all games installed onto a seperate drive. Not that it should
make any difference as I always ensure that I scan all drives anyway.
I'll see what happens and let you know

That game does NOT require that you run it on a machine with a web
service installed or running. Remove IIS using the Windows Components -
in fact, remove anything you are not using so that you have less
exposure.
