    Default More Malware?

    Today (Feb 16/08) I have found some new programs that have recently appeared (Feb 8-9) xrun.exe, xpre.exe, snapsnet.exe, wilnes.exe,winihfh.exe,wingwmy.exe --- I found them all in my ZA programs list. with the autolearn, and ?marks in the trusted and internet columns. If these are to be deleted, can I just highlight them - delete them, and then delete them from my recyle bin? or should I just put the Kill sign on them in my ZA antivirus program list? I have done a scan this a.m. and have some new quarentines.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Antivirus

    My suggestions
    &quot;Kill&quot; these programs:1 - xrun.exe - see/ click here &gt; http://fileinfo.prevx.com/fileinfo.asp?PXC=efcc98930454<hr>2 - xpre.exe - http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X1433.../XPRE.EXE.html<hr>3 -
    snapsnet.exe - http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X1117...PSNET.EXE.html<hr>The following
    three not certain yet; but are highly suspect (in association with the three above) - red x them for now until you/ we gather more info on them. Do not &quot;Remove&quot;
    from program list - this only removes from the list - not delete from the pc, as you believe. Only &quot;Kill&quot; - renders them 'neutralized'.
    <hr>4 - wilnes.exe - ??.
    trust level ? - red x -all<hr>5 - winihfh.exe - ??. trust level ? - red x - all<hr>6 - wingwmy.exe - ??. trust level
    ? - red x -

    - my suggestion &gt; change Auto Learn to &quot;High&quot;<hr><hr>You do have a malware infection. You tried Lavasoft's Ad-Aware and it found nothing. I would suggest you un-install Lavasoft {sorry about that and Spybot - if you have that, too = these two anti-spyware programs are rather low/ mediocre software
    }. And instead get a better performing antispyware that will cost; but in the long run - be better for you. It's Webroot's plain Anti-spyware software - see/ click here &gt; http://www.webroot.com/En_US/land-in...structions.php
    . &lt; for a free trial/ scan.<hr>&gt; http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consume...pysweeper.html
    <hr>Second suggestion - use the free services of a spyware removal forum. These dedicated 'specialists' will provide &quot;expert&quot; help.<p align="center">Visit a spyware removal forum &lt;&lt;&lt;<div align="center">

    {
    and forget about the free SpywareDoctor = as this is a limited protection version and it has more conflicts/ problems running with ZA firewalls and with Kaspersky av - Webroot is a bit more tolerable} [ if you do install Webroot Anti-Spyware-plain - tip &gt; shut off the &quot;E-Mail Attachment Shield&quot; = this is already covered by ZA's av and will conflict if left on]<hr>:8}NaiveMelody NYC 2-17-08 - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
