    Some of my games started randomly crashing, so I ran a virus check and it found ngyut.exe in my system32 folder. I didn't recognize the file so I googled it, nothing. I did a search here, nothing...

    Is anyone else familiar with this file? Is it standard or is it viral? Looks fishy, to me. AVG isn't quite sure what exactly is wrong with it.

    Hmmm... Well, it came up as fine. I'm still curious as to what it's for, though. :)

    Thanks, Doc!

    You can sometimes get a clue why the file is there by right clicking the file, then Properties and look at title, version, company, etc. A HijackThis log will sometimes indicate what the file is for too.

    It's a DOS-Prompt... It shows nothing more than that.:confused:

    Its in C:\WINDOWS\system32\ngyut.exe

    Does anyone have it, as well?
