    Craig T,
    My suggestion:
    Download and install HIJACKTHIS (free)
    at www.trendsecure.comRun a scan only and save the Hijackthis logfileRun a startup list from Misc tools on hijackthis, save the startup log.Do not do any fixes or
    change anything in any wayI recommend you work with trained experts at www.bleepingcomputer.com
    Also go to bleeping computer.com See Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html
    Post
    both the scan log file and the startup list
    HIJACKTHIS information to
    www.bleepingcomputer.com
    (free tech forum you'll need to register to get help)
    Also if you choose to do this, stick with working with them, some people solution hop and that can and usually does become a disaster. Just my opinion.
    Also when and if you post your HIJACKTHIS log be
    sure to include detailed information about your OS, Firewall, A/V, A/S and their versions, etc.
    Good luck,Findley

    Run a search for the file on LIUtilities and verify the file. Not A Virus is usually used to identify a threat the is not a Virus, for example, Crack tools, hack tools, psw stealers, etc. If indeed you want to remove the file Killbox is an excellent program for killing processes and files, even offering to do it on reboot when the file is not in use. Good Luck.

    PS- Findley is totally correct and I myself have jumped. Hijack this is an excellent program and will find all hidden streams and processes, It does NOT diagnose the solutions or tell you what to delete, so make sure you goto the forums he suggested for help, DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING using hijack this without Expert Help. Or suffer the consequences...Again, good luck.
