Hello all :) Not sure if I'm in the right place for this or not, but does anyone know what this process is ? If I end the process I don't notice any programs closing.

newptsvc.exe

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Jewelie :p

You may need a visit to the Security forum, but for now post a HijackThis Scanlog

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe


The process, if spelled correctly, is almost certainly malware of some kind.

The scanlog looks clean other than that.

I don't know how it got there, but it shouldn't be too hard to get rid of.

First terminate the process if it is present.

Then run HijackThis and check this entry and then select "fix checked":

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wFtW32h] newptsvc.exe

Reboot and find and delete the file.

There are no search hits for it, so it is probably a randomly named viral file.

No problem. Mark the thread "Solved" using the Thread Tools tab if all is well.

You're welcome for the help.
