    hi sicko :)

    According to this link,

    http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/win2000/r1076204161

    it is a sex dialer. :eek:

    U might want to follow the instructions here,

    and let one of the experts take a look at your HijackThis log.


    Hope this helps.

    thanks for the input. actually, i have already seen that link about a couple of months ago when i did a search for this file and it seems that only a few people encountered that file and very few sites came up with that search. i've looked myself into my hijackthis log but there seems to be nothing wrong with it, nothing suspicious. if it is really a dialer, i wonder why none detected it since its file creation dates back a year ago. i think its impossible that no one has a signature for it if it is really a malware.

    well, nothing seems to be wrong with my system now so i guess i shouldnt be worrying too much about this file.

    thanks again...

    so i guess this isnt a malware after all, that explains why it isnt flagged by AVs, ATs or spyware apps.

    thanks again

    Try the Panda Security online scanner. It found and cleaned the file (which it identified as a Trojan).
