Added to the system as a result of the IMISERV VIRUS! which is a backdoor Trojan used to control a target computer from a remote location.It consists of a Server and a Client part. It distributes the Server part to target computers and uses the Client part to control the system running the Server part.
from the IMISERV virus
Carp A backdoor that allows pop-eups through firewalls, etc.
Evelyn Arndt I had this on my computer . It was causing all kinds of problems. It can be removed with spybot. There is also a windows tool that can remove it if someone prefers that  See also: Link
Anonymous Comp. Genius Trojan!!!
John in Tennessee. After connecting to the net it loads up along with joqhzpx.exe & FARMMEXT.exe. Repeated attempts to close it results in either calc.exe or packager.exe to load. It writes to the registry until I run "Registry First Aid", Spybot & Adware. So far a pain in the A#$ only but a fix is desired!
