@David: ihaupd32.exe looks like malware to me. It does not have any vendor or version information. Could you please upload the file to the virus scanners over at virustotal.com and let us known if it was detected as malware?

I have a laptop that declared this file encountered an error and was closed. DEP Also went active -and stopped this program. I will be aggressive with it, and report anything I learn from the experience.. recovery disk in hand =)

Laptop had to be restored to 7/11/09. Internet services, specifically wireless internet connection would not connect to the active (wpa+wpa2 secured wireless N router. verified active connection with 2nd laptop. Windows error 'could not connect to your preferred network' 2 restarts, a little ccleaner cleanup, and a win-services checkup -wmi/wireless-zero/etc) all to no avail.
I hope this leads someone else down the right path. Since system restore the affected laptop is obscenely sluggish to load pages. like dial-up slow, while the PC i'm using to type this tests on speedtest.net @ 25.41mbps, 9ms latency (5.6mbps upload)

Thank you for freefixer. I was able to delete the ihaupd32.exe. When I restarted the computer I keep getting the message that ppbph.exe has encountered an error. I re-scanned using freefixer. The ppbph.exe file shows in registry startups. Should I delete the ppbph.exe?

@Lopa: ppbph.exe sure sounds suspicious. But before deleting it, please upload it to virustotal.com to make sure it's not a legit file. Please let us know what the scan result said.

Thank you for your reply. Today when I started the computer screen does not change beyond "Welcome" screen. The laptop has Windows XP. What could be the problem?
