    Found this malware program recently after a key logging program called esden.exe (or something like that) which I could not remove short of this program. I was a bugger I wonder though if these companies build there own mal ware programs that they can only remove to build business:confused: :D

    LOL. That's a thought. Maybe a bit too conspiratorial, but there are no doubt at least some that do.

    I've used PrevX before, too, to remove stubborn malware. It worked very well but was just too intrusive to keep.

    Ya I know I turn it off because it is always checking each program when it initiares I also do not like the fact that when it scans my files it submits them to an open web page.....Do you know how to stop it from automatically starting on reboot every time I remove it from auto start (magic utilities) it still starts

    Maybe that was why I removed it--the autostart always being restored. In any case, Autoruns ought to be able to find it's startup. It may be a driver that restores it.
