    spyware. go to my security tools link, download and run spybot and adaware and have it fix what it finds. If it does not delete the file, reboot into safe mode and remove it from your system32 folder

    did you reboot into safe mode and delete the file?

    you could see if its in MSCONFIG and uncheck it, but I would delete the file.
