    First, I don't know if this qualifies as malware but I'm having a maddening time trying to get rid of it! A few days ago I noticed something was making a text document, a duplicate of my PDF files, and I knew it wasn't anything I'd done consciously.
    I've done all types searches using GPLGS, GPL Ghost Script, Ghost Script, etc. and I've nothing on my hard drive to indicate where the software is. I understand it has something to do with PrimoPDF but I don't find it in that folder. Searched the registry using the above, found nothing.

    It may not be dangerous but I don't need those extra files, which I will never use, cluttering my hard drive.

    Please help! How do I get rid of it? :unsure:
