    Hi all,

    There is a "save as a pdf file" box that appears on my computer as soon as it's loaded up. The name of the pdf it is trying to save is just "?.pdf". When i try and cancel it, it pops back up after 5 seconds or so.

    Anyone heard of this before, I reckon it's some sort of spyware and I've lots of programs to get rid of it (AdAware, cc cleaner, stinger, spybot etc) but to no avail :(

    Any help appreciated!

    Rather than walk you through a lot of registry editing..download autostart viewer. link below. just to be safe Make sure you back up your registry first. when you run the program look for the suspicious file then just right click it and select delete. hope this helps.
