    On Startup I have suddenly started getting a request through my virus software for an inbound connection for a program called Kontiki. I have not installed this program and it is not listed in my Programs Menu or in the Add/Remove programs in Control panel. It does however have it's own folder within C/program files. What is it? Is it virus related? Can I delete it?? :D

    It's to do with downloading videos and stuff I think. 4od (Channel 4 On Demand) in the UK uses it to let users download/rent episodes of TV shows.

    Mystery solved! Many thanks. I had searched on the internet and there was mention of it being spyware but I wasn't sure. Have recently downloaded Channel 4 on demand so that must be what it is. Thanks Again. x

    No probs - I just downloaded it a couple of days ago as well - it's definitely for 4od.
