    I came across this file that PG alerted on but can not find anything in google or PG's data base or any of the malware databases.
    File glb1c6.tmp
    Any one with any ideas?

    What were you doing when this file tried to execute? Where you expecting any programs to execute at that time?

    I had a tmp file which I had to allow to run on the security tab. This tmp file was created by The Sims game each time the game loaded.

    Well Wayne thats the problem I was browseing the BBR Forums at the time.

    Had not downloaded anything at that time. Or anything within 48 hours or more. Would this possibly be part of bearshare I noticed the grand kids had been to some yahoo and msn games. I really need to remember to log out of my account LOL

    Dannyboy, you've just said a major thing-remember to log out and don't give the grandkids/anyone else admin rights.

    TEMP file from an installer. Nothing to worry about, expect this when you execute a SETUP or INSTALL, then you see the temp file. OK it and you will get the setup loader which is what that file is. If suspicious deny and upload file to http://virusscan.jotti.org ? :)
