READ THIS BEFORE PROCEEDING!
The processes ihpmserver.exe and RayDld.exe are mostly installed via a “virus cocktail” – meaning that and adware, trojan or virus infiltrated your PC and installed a bunch of other stuff. For your convenience we included the removal procedures for anything not quite legitimate that might include these processes. Remove Ihpmserver and RayDld as well as everything related, as they will only slow down your PC or worse.
If you want to get rid of Ihpmserver and RayDld and its future brethren the first thing you need to learn is what exactly you are dealing with. Ihpmserver and RayDld is a type of mildly malicious software called Adware that exists to spam advertisements when you work with your internet browser. On its own Ihpmserver and RayDld is not very dangerous, but you should still do everything possible to get rid of it quickly. If given time and allowed to operate Ihpmserver and RayDld can fill your computer with other viruses, bloatware and more.
Here are a couple of things you should be aware of until Ihpmserver and RayDld is removed
As mentioned above Ihpmserver and RayDld may be used as a backdoor into your computer’s security for other, much more dangerous viruses to be installed. This process is done through the help of infected executable files that will be offered to you for download and installation by Ihpmserver and RayDld. Of course, it will be done with the help of trickery and deception.
One common way these programs use to fool people is by creating Ads that look like system messages and which can report different problems with your computer. If you start seeing flashing messages about missing plug-ins that need installing or that a video player or codec should be installed in order to see some media online then you now know that something is fishy. Another possibility are bogus virus infections, registry errors or other that a “free online scanner” has detected on your computer. There is no such thing as a free online scanner that can search your computer WITHOUT your permission. It’s a scam of course.
Nothing useful will really come out of Ihpmserver and RayDld really, so hurry up and remove it. Simply closing its windows will not make it worse, but remember that viruses like Ihpmserver and RayDld often send feedback data to their creators involving the online habbits of the person using the infected computer – all of which is valuable data that can be sold.

For Windows 98, XP, Millenium and 7 Users:
Restart your computer. To be sure you don’t miss the time when you need to press it, just spam F8 as soon as the PC starts booting. In the new menu, choose Safe Mode With Networking.
Proceed to Step 2.

Now that Safe Mode has been enabled our hands are free to begin the removal of Ihpmserver and RayDld itself. The first part of this process involves cleaning Ihpmserver and RayDld from your internet browsers. To do it you need to run Steps 2&3 for multiple times if necessary – once for each browser that is currently installed on your PC. Make sure to include all that are installed – even if you havn’t used any in a while. Those may also be infected and can serve as a backup/restore point for the virus.
Also pay attention to any confirmation messages that pop-up as you try to remove Ihpmserver and RayDld. They might contain convoluted logic or may try to install other programs on your computer as you remove Ihpmserver and RayDld. These are likely other viruses and should be ignored.
For Internet Explorer Users:
Open IE, then click —–> Manage Add-ons.
Find Ihpmserver and RayDld . Remove it by pressing Disable.
If your Home Page is different from the usual, click —–> Internet Options>edit the URL box with your preferred search engine, and click Apply.
Go to STEP 3.

Ihpmserver and RayDld should be somewhere around here – Remove it.
Go to STEP 3.
For Google Chrome Users:
Start Chrome, click —–>More Tools —–> Extensions. There, find the virus and select (Remove).
Click again, and proceed to Settings —> Search, the fourth tab, select Manage Search Engines. Remove anything but the search engines you normally use.
Go to STEP 3.
For Safari Users:
Open Safari, and click Safari —–>Preferences —–> Extensions—–>Uninstall the malware.
Go to STEP 3.
Right click on the browser’s shortcut, then click Properties.
NOTE: We are showing Google Chrome, but the method is the same for all browsers.
Once you’ve reached Properties —–> Shortcut (on the band at the top), then in the Target type field, REMOVE EVERYTHING AFTER .exe.
Continue with STEP 4.
Hold the Windows Key and R together. Write appwiz.cpl in the new field, then click OK.
You are now in the Control Panel. Search around for Ihpmserver and RayDld and anything else suspicious-looking. Uninstall it/them. Also, be extremely careful. Viruses often spend one last ditch effort to trick you into installing more of their kind. If you see a screen like this when you click Uninstall, choose NO:
Hold the Windows Key and R again – but this time copy + paste the following and click OK:
A .txt file will open – don’t touch anything there. If you are hacked and someone has access to your PC, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. This is what a hosts file looks like:
If there are a bunch of strange IPs connecting to you below “Localhost” you may be hacked, and it’s best to ask us in the comments for directions.
Go to STEP 5.
Open the Task Manager by right clicking on the Taskbar and choosing Start Task Manager.
Once it opens, choose the Processes Tab. Look at all of the processes in front of you and try to determine which ones are a virus. Google them or ask us in the comments and we will provide the best assistance we can.
