    ....Posted, so I'm weaseling it in here.... (I hope the grammer cops ain't checkin' "Weasel?? there...)...... I run Win2K Pro and in Device Manager, Hidden Devices in the Non-Plug and Play there is an entry... "qkeoyrpdeba".... (No quotes of course...) o_O

    Has ANYONE ever, ever seen this buggaboo before o_O? That is the correct spelling, and other info was that it had a problem or wasn't installed at all... I did several searches of the machine for this and found nothing... I also did several online searches coming up with zilch, nada, the big goose egg.... Zero...

    SO, To make a long story longer... has anyone seen it before o_O? (Really though, I'm not joking... )

    I went ahead and "uninstalled" it through device manager, kind of waiting to see if anything decides to go squirrley on my machine......

    Thanks ahead of time.......

    Have you used a program by Sysinternals called Rootkit Revealer ?
    Also....if you search your your hard drive for qkeoyrpdeba....do you find a corresponding .exe file by that name in possibly a Temp folder ?
    If you do have such a file and if you check it's file properties does it mention Sysinternals ?

    Well, ya know what Bubba... I sure have run the Rootkit Revealer, but I could'nt find reference one to that goofy named file anywhere on the HD at all, BUT, I'm gonna re-install Rootkit Revealer and see if it does show back up... Thanks for the tip !!! :cool:

    It will not show up as that same "goofy named file" but it will definetly resemble a "goofy named file" :eek: :D
