    Hi Fellas,

    I think I'm infected.

    ok, its a work PC so I can't update the NAV,
    but I ran NAV and it showed clean,

    however it warned that w32.pinfi was detected and cleaned.

    the file was winhlpp32.exe, also added was a file iixplorer.exe (in c root)

    I deleted the winhlpp32 file, system is fine, except everynow and again I get a window open (looks like something like win,,,,/cmd) and closes.

    I can't delete the iixplorer file, have looked in the reg for this and the winhlpp32 file and its not there

    is there a proper tool to clean pinfi (if this is what I had), if I can manage to delete the iixplorer file will this help



    win XP
