Girlfriend was installing something last weekend and at the same time must have been being scanned by someone as she allowed 2 programs that were not part of her installation.. She assumed they were, they were not and now I have this issue.
every boot up I get an error from x.exe connection has been refused by system (which is a good thing ) and it pops up twice. I asked her about it, she said yea, she allowed that one and one called run dll as an app.
So, ran numerous scans but cannot get rid of this issue and cannot find the run dll as an app anywhere. X.exe is hidden rather well as I can't find it through any means on my computer.
Any help to how I can get rid of this short of a format would be appreciated.
also, the zonealarm client updates itself while not connected (I have DSL) and it does this for awhile before I can do anything online. This seemed strange to me.
