You might want to try an Anti-rootkit tool to see if the file is being hidden from Windows by malware.
which anti-rootkit would you suggest
Splash.exe should be in your files somewhere . Does your computer have it setup to show HIDDEN files ? Seems like a false positive to me .
I use Malware Defender to bypass the Windows API in looking at the file system and for a separate tool I like XueTr. There's a new version of Vba32 AntiRootKit that was just posted in this forum. I've tried that one too and it seems to be good. A lot of folks like GMER also.
tried gmer only thing that came up was returnil so i guess no rootkit
Did you look to see if you have a c:\splash\splash.exe on your hard drive with GMER?
I wouldn't write it off as a fasle positive. I can't find anything about this file anywhere. I googled it several times. You can find plenty of info on Splash.exe, but not splash/splash.exe Click on any folder, and go to tools/folder options/ view/hidden files and folders and click show hidden files, and folders. Now search in the location asquared says it is located. It should be there. If you find it then right click on it, and view its properties and see if it is digitally signed. Look to see when it was created etc. .
Whoops - sorry Cutting Edgetech you beat me to it. Your post popped up as I was posting.
i already viewed hidden file not found
no activity on pc or connection i think fp
yep i had read that my comp is a hp
