    Hello

    I was doing some routine maintenance on my comp and found this .... C:\!submit.

    It had an index.dat file in it, which I deleted with killbox.

    Spyware scan didn't hit on it.

    Any idea where it came from or what it is?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Reboot and check again. If the file has reappeared, then it's one of your running processes.
