    Is this a virus? is this safe to delete?

    c:\windows\system32\wgp_menu.exe

    "probably a variant of win32/TrojanDownloader.VB Trojan"

    A 2-second search in Google for "wgp_menu.exe" showed that this is a part of WinGuard Pro (http://www.winguardpro.com/faq.html).

    Unless you got an infected or pirated copy of WinGuard, this might be a case of false positive. Uninstall WGPro and install a fresh copy directly from their site. If you receive the same response, it's a case of false alarm.

    In any case, I would recommend running periodically Spybot Search and Destroy (http://www.spybot.com) - you might have another type of infection.

    Hello,

    You may send a copy of the file in a .ZIP or .RAR file protected with a password of "infected" to samples@eset.sk with a link to this message thread for analysis by ESET's virus lab.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
