    Hi all

    I was wondering if someone could take a look at this file for me H@tKeysH@@k.DLL because spybot flags this up as part of a key logger but I have no idea where its coming from and it keeps reappearing I want to know what program this file is being created by or what its associated with so that I can get rid of the offending program I also want to know if this is just one stray file or if it is part of a program or maybe its using another program

    Its appeared several times every time I destroy it and then when I run my next scan say a month later during routine maintenance its back and what's making me kind of suspicious about this file is that now and then my mouse pointer just moves on its own which suggests that there is something fishy going on maybe a Trojan or something plus its location seems a lil suspect to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM

    whats really got me spooked this time is 1 that it keeps comming back and 2 that i dont know where its come from coz usualy i can track what these things where installed with but not so this time

    i also tryed to do a lil investigation of my own so i downloaded Karen's Version Browser and tryed checking the file in question out with that came up empty no info avalible

    help
