Thread: Sample.exe

    Default Sample.exe

    I am getting a message about stopping SAMPLE.EXE when I shut down my machine.
    All the message boards point to a worm called W32.Nimba and I have run the removal tool from Symantec (Fix Tool 2.0.5).
    It says that the worm is not present.
    I have run full virus checks on Zone Alarm and there are no alerts.
    SAMPLE.EXE does not appear on my Task Manager so it does not seem to be there.
    Does anybody know what this is?
    Is it a worm?
    In which case how can I remove it as ZoneAlarm is not picking it up.
    Thanks

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
