    Hey folks,
    Yesterday I noticed that there was a strange icon on my pc desktop. When I try to open it, the scree is left blank. When I view its properties, it just claims that it is a process.
    Can anybody help identify this for me? Is it Dangerous? Is it a form of keysttroke software or spyware?
    It is labeled as follows:
    Dokumenteundeinstellungenallusers

    Do I need to be concerned.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi and welcome.
    Dosen't look a good process.
    Can you right click and End the process?

    What Anti-virus and Spyware programs are you using??
    Have you scanned your system with them?

    I have tried to open it and nothing happens. I also have tried to right click and close it but am unable to. I have reason to believe that it may be some sort of spyware. I share the pc with my wife, we are having problems.

    Thank you for your help. I was able to remove it with Norton Antivirus.
