Today, I had to help someone who was having trouble updating their Windows Live Messenger to the latest version. Turns out they didn't have trouble with the actual software, but with something they read in the internet thanks to the wonders of Google. Namely, this: http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X3453662875588857735-X1/WLCOMM.EXE.html I thought that was rather "interesting", so I, too, googled around. And in a couple of seconds, found stuff like this, to name a few: http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X637823902852059119-X1/SVCHOST.EXE.html http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X658425073641589364-X1/TOTALCMD.EXE.html What's the problem with these reports? That is left as an exercise for the reader. One little hint, though: Everyone who installs Windows Live Messenger 14 is going to have a file called wlcomm.exe on their system.
