    Recently I noticed a taau.exe file lingering around in my "c:\documents and settings\application data\" folder. Has anyone heard of this? I did a google search on it as well as ran it against PC-Cillin 2005 and tested it for spyware.
    I found it running when I realized my computer was lagging in performance; when I killed off the process it went back to normal.
    any clues? :confused:

    I couldn't find any info on that particular file. But judging from that and the location, it was probably something virii/malware related.

    Yeah that's what I figured. I was wondering if anyone else had seen it. I'm gonna keep working on it.
