The corruption or deletion of NSCSRVCE.EXE file will lead to NSCSRVCE.EXE error when the software or Windows system call this file. Long story slightly short: I tried re-installing 10.0.246.000, and 10.0.250.000 and 10.1.052.000 - twice each! I deleted it afterwards and restarted computer.
Nothing significant found - just some tracking cookies. A Backdoor install a different file in the %windows%\system directory.

Ben windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 in my case it is in a folder called \systemRoot\System32 and its not signed by microsoft is this folder a valid one or is not.? I have v.10.0.250.000 (fully licensed) running on two other PCs, which are SINGLE Hard Drive - with NO issues. I wonder if either of these is a virus... Many users ask me this question as it keeps popping up all the time and quite annoying.
Now, a new icon has appeared on my system tray. Register now! By the way most spyware programs have another one unnamed that re-creates the offending files and makes them hard to get rid of.

When Windows or software gives error messages, it means to attract your attention and needs you to fix the problem. Step 4: Repair the registry. Take advantage of the download today! And because of these, sometime a simple program download may come with some unexpected spyware to the computer.

The first thing you need to ensure is that this error is not caused by computer malware. Otherwise, if it lies elsewhere and consumes a large amount of CPU resources then it is definitely a virus/trojan and should simply be deleted (in Safe Mode or Real Dos Mode).
