I recently installed MalwareDefender. Today I finally got around to doing my routine weekly check of my system files so as to detect any significant changes. As is to be expected, I found some new files put there by MalwareDefender. However, I also found a new system file that I cannot directly relate to MalwareDefender. That file is: hobpephe.sys On my XP system it is located at C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\hobpephe.sys. I Google-searched hobpephe.sys. RESULT: "Your search - hobpephe.sys - did not match any documents." I scanned the file with Avast & VirusTotal. Both said it's okay. Even so, I would like to find out if this file is a component of MalwareDefender. REQUEST: If you are a user of MalwareDefender, PLEASE check and see whether hobpephe.sys is on your computer.
