Hi!

Recently a keygen.exe keeps appearing on my windows desktop. Strange thing is that it is empty: is 0 bytes and when opened up with Notepad contains nothing. My Panda Antivirus does not detect anything, and my task manager and regedit work as they should.

My computer is an AMD 3200 PC with Windows 7 OS. Aside from the .exe appearing out of thin air from my desktop, my PC works fine.

I downloaded the HijackThis and created the following log. I'd appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.
