I ran a Panda online Scan and found 3 entries listed below. I have located the .exe files and deleted them. On a reboot they appear to be gone.

Will i be fine now and do you have any info on these files?

Thnx

These are what anti-virus programs identify as unwanted tools.
They are not viruses or anything like that.
They are programs normally bundled on your system that have the ability to 'kill' - a utility that can terminate processes on the local computer.

Oki Thnx

I have had problems for 2-3 Days now. X-Fire taking 20-30 seconds to load. My Internet unexplained dropped conex for upto 2 Hours at a time. However i have 2 PC`s, both running the same connection. Only this PC has had problems. Thing is, i ran a Panda Scan only last week and these were not detected then, also i had no issues then. But all is faster than ever now.

I noticed that it is possible with the right commands to terminate a process on a Remote Computer if i have an account to 1. I do have an account to 1, a gaming Server, this has also suffered lag in the past week.

Am i a little paranoid? If these exe files were already there, is it fair to say someone were accessing them and running them?

Thnx again
