Yes, I'm sure I was hit with a trojan/hijacker. My indication came in several spy sweeps with three or four apps (that eliminated everything?). However, my Mozilla browser is still giving me pop-ups! - For the first time ever - - as it is disabled. Hijackthis shows things to be clean. ----> However in Process Explorer I get lamvna.exe popping up if I start 'Explore'. I kill it but if I opens when open Explore (the File Manage), starts again. No, the "File" itself, 'lamvna.exe' doesn't seem to exist! Process Explorer give the path as WINDOWS\system32\lamvna.exe -- but it isn't there! ----> Oh, my Task Manager is also corrupt. taskmgr.exe The one that comes with MS. It starts? But it only shows the "inner box" - no tabs, or the container shell. (That's why I'm using Process Explorer which is great. I even tried grabbing another taskmgr.exe and installing it and executing in another directory. Same thing - - only the "inner shell" with the list of processes for taskmgr.exe. Yes, I believe 'something' is calling on lamvna.exe - - but it is not in my system! So, how can it show it's using 3,000 K +, if the file doesn't exist? I ran netstat (from the cmd prompt) and I don't believe I am connecting to any unknown addresss. (I was). So: 1. Why am I still getting popups? 2. What is lamvna.exe? And why the strange behavior for a file not in the system? 3. Finally, is there anyway to get taskmgr.exe 'fixed' - though Process Explorer is great? Until it's fixed, I'll wonder what else might be messed up?! Thanks!
