    Hello, first post and thank you for everything you all do.
    I recently noticed that a process named [username].exe was running on my computer. I found an old thread from March 2007 on the site and wanted to use it to fix my rig but OTMoveIt by OldTimer is no longer available as far as I could see (404). Could someone please help me out?

    Symptoms: unrecognized process running, PC refuses to shut down at times, external storage devices register as in use when they shouldn't be and my ipod isn't being recognized when it's plugged in either. There is probably other stuff going on as well that I can't see.

    I checked Symantec's information and they have something called Trojan.Hiween on file that sounds like my issue somewhat but I really don't want to start any procedures before I've IDed this thing properly.
