User Comments

PNXKERNL.Exe is corrupted
It isn't spyware, it is the conversion kernel that processes jobs placed in the job queue, and it also monitors watch folders. It shouldn't get to 100% CPU utilization, something may be wrong with your installation. Try going to [FONT=Courier New]C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Grass Valley\ProCoder 3\Nexus[/FONT] and see if there are any files underneath the [FONT=Courier New]Jobs[/FONT] folder -- if so, delete them. You can also use the Procoder Queue Manager to disable the automatic startup of the conversion kernel using a checkmark in the Tools menu.
it is a Pro Coder file and it no malware. Go to C:\Documents and settings\all users\application data\Grass Valley\ProCoder3\Nexus\Jobs and if there are any files delete them
