Does anyone know anything about the program "wewrykpx.exe"? Zone Alarm prompted me about it awhile ago. It is located at C:\Windows\system32, and was created eight days ago. I'm assuming it's some kind of spyware, but can't find anything in any websearches. Thanks in advance for any input.

When there is no reference anywhere on the internet for a .exe program, it's exceeded the boundaries of suspicion into unwanted. It's either a keylogger, a trojan, or a virus, or new spyware,

Download and run Hijack This , click 'scan', then 'save log' , copy and paste it in the forum,

You can also check your registry,
start / run / regedit

And see if you can find it in the registry. Click on 'edit', then 'find', type it in and search, if found remove.

It's probably here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\RUN

You can click on each successive +sign for each folder till you come to RUN, highlight that folder and look in the right pane for 'wewrykpx.exe'

Check all the 'Runs'
Highlight them one at a time and look in the right pane for 'wewrykpx.exe' .... then right click the name to its left and delete,

:)
