    Processguard trial version found this file in my windows folder, and I am not sure if it is a false alarm or not. I have SP2 for XP Pro, and use Avast 4.5, Dr Web antivirus running in the background. XoftSpy 4.04 didn't find it, nor did adAware 6 or the antivirus programs I use. My firewall is the SP2 standard XP Firewall

    It was called a virus at this URL: http://www.i-eye.de/archive/32704-New_virus_found.php

    please advise.

    Hi lndscapr,

    Welcome to Wilders!!!

    I am not really sure what you mean about PG finding it unless you mean PG alerted you to its runng...
    I have the same OS as you and there is a legitimate windows file by that name (see screenshot). If the file in question has the same properties and location as this, I would say all is OK.

    You may want to scan the file at Jotti's to doublecheck.

    HTH...

    Thank you both for your insight. I tested the file with http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/, and it proved to be fine. This was the first time I had seen ProcessGuard notify me of something out of the blue like this, and I am still early on in my evaluation of the software.

    Hi lndscapr, You will find out that many processes are run in the backround and ProcessGuard will alert on every one of them. Of course, most will be trusted windows files which can be given the "Permit always" allow. This is PG's first line of fefence ;)

    Enjoy. Pilli
