Hi Everyone
My name is Maggi and I am a newbie to this site. I hope that anyone can help me please. I am having difficulty with two programs on my computer, that Zone alarm tells me are trying to access the internet. I keep denying them access as I do not know what they are or where they came from. Their names are Sysmon16.exe and Save.exe , they appear when I access my explorer. I have two teenagers who download stuff I know nothing about, and I am wary about deleting these files until I know what they are and where they came from. Anyone any ideas PLEASE???
Thanks Maggi.

Hi, and welcome to the board!.

The first one is probably a backdoor trojan: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/backdoor.sdbot.html

The second one is spyware, and you may well have more.

Do this:

Start by running an online virusscan at Panda Active Scan

When you're done, go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.
