    Hi

    I have searched the forums but couldn't find anyone that had experienced this - I had a little popup from NOD32 saying there was a suspicious file 'angelina.exe' and could it submit the file to ESET for analysis. Of course I clicked OK and then had a look to see if I could find the file. Which I couldn't. Searched all my drives and couldn't find anything remotely resembling angelina.exe, then checked quarantine, nothing there, checked the logs, nothing there. So, is there a ghost in the machine? Did a full scan with NOD32 and didn't find anything, and also double checked with Trend's House call but everything came up clean.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I have send a support email to ESET who were helpful in pointing me towards areas to look at, but not tracked it down yet.

    I had something similar happen a couple of weeks ago; something called xmilla.exe. NOD gave me the pop-up about submitting the file, but there was no record of it being detected/cleaned/submitted in the logs, and there was nothing in quarantine. o_O

    File called angelina.exe really smell like a threat so EA/NOD32 has done its job- saved you . Most likely it was found with the help of the heuristics and that is why it asked you to send it to ESET - for further analysis .
    Since EA/NOD32 has deleted the threat , it will be pretty normal for it not to exist on your machine anymore . Why hasn't NOD32 created a log file - well , this is another question :thumb:

    thanks HiTech_boy

    I have turned the logging level up, so hopefully if it happens again I'll get some more information. My main concern was to find out where is came from!

    cheers
