Question NWEReboot? Virus or needed for Nero?
Hello,

I have a NWEReboot in my startup process. I dont know what it is but i did a search on google and found 2 conflicting answers. one says it is associated with dummy.exe and is bad. the other says it is a temporary nero file needed so nero runs properly. which one is it?

i run spyware doctor, spyspweeper, spybot S&D and avast regularly. Mcaffee is my firewall. and i also do a kaspersky onlinescan once a week. i also run registry mechanic sometimes. and all come out negative for this NWEReboot.

However Registry crawler comes up with these when i search for NWEReoot:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (NWEReboot)

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-789336058-1757981266-839522115-1003\Software\Microsoft\Search Assistant\ACMru\5603 (000=nwereboot)

and nothing when i search for dummy.exe

here is my highjackthis log:

i also keep getting this "adware found" message everytime i run spysweeper: iehelper

but it always seems to come back

is it just a coincidence that this has the same registry entry as the NWEReboot listed above??? seems fishy.
