Howdy,

A customer of mine has this embedded in their computer. It's really fun, seriously.

For instance, you try to open up the task monitor to see what's new, and it closes it right away, try to run msconfig, it'll close that too.

Once you have killed off SinstantM.exe, you are able to look at msconfig, and the task monitor with it staying open. It's weird. I removed it from startup, deleted the registry entries by hand and it's still there. I did a search and came up with a pagefile, nothing special.

I can't figure out where this file really installs to, aside from C:\win. All the files were dumped there. Customers son said he clicked on a link in someone's Aim away message, and it downloaded a pif file that he opened lol.

If anyone has experienced this, or has a remedy, it would be awesome.
