    Default Request Info On Two Listings

    Good afternoon.

    I have two listings in my Zone Alarm that I cannot identify.
    Have tried several search engines but didn't get much info. Thought someone here would know what they are.
    Am looking for info on "project1" and also on "pay44.tmp.exe."
    Don't know if I should keep them there or dump them.
    Would appreciate your help.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    You can always remove any programs on your Program List in ZA by right clicking on them then click to 'remove'. This will not do any damage but they will come back the next time they run. With respect to the two you mentioned, that is exactly what I'd do, right click on them then click on 'remove'. Now reboot your computer then check to see if they come back. The "pay44" one could be a leftover .tmp file from an installation and if so, it should not come back. The other could be a virus/Trojan according to F-Secure and Sophos antivirus companies. I'd suggest you update your AV program and do a scan or follow the instructions on the two links I posted.

    Thanks, Bill

    Will try your suggestions and see what happens.
    Will come back tomorrow, as it's almost Super Bowl time now.
    Thanks again!

    Hello, Bill.
    This is the old

    Buckhead boy"
    back with his report.
    I did as you suggested -- removed the two listings and rebooted.
    They are gone!
    Re your comment about the anti-virus definitions being up to date and scanning the system.
    I do that religiously every few days and
    have had no indications of a virus, etc.
    Thanks again for your input!

    Great. If they are not on the list, then they've not started again. BTW, I'm a Buckhead resident as well.

    Hi, Bill.
    Good to hear from you again.
    Yep, all is well.
    Re Buckhead, I knew you were from there, as you've answered several questions for me in this forum in the past.
    I grew up a few blocks down from Peachtree on East Paces Ferry.
    We moved my senior year in high school (North Fulton).
    Where our home once was is now office buildings or condos, I forget which.

    It just doesn't look the same now, nor should it. I sometimes wonder what my old school chums are doing now -- the girls and boys.
    One of my old playmates is a prominent guy in the clothing business there, or was the last time I heard.
