    Resides in windows/system32. Is this file dangerous? Can't find much info on the net. Have tried to disable it in startup, but comes right back b/4 leaving the screen. If anyone has info on this file, would sure appreciate the data.

    http://spywarefiles.prevx.com/RRIAHG1418/NZM.EXE.html Prevx says it's bad. Found this using Google.

    Hammer, THANK YOU FOR THE LINK! I downloaded/installed/ran on a 31 day trial. Not only did it take care of 4 different instances of NZM, also found other malware and put 'em in Jail! Very effective program and extremely reasonable on fees. You can buy a subscription on time intervals of 1 mo., 3 mos, or 12 mos., AFTER the 31 day trial and it is not restricted in any way. I was/am really impressed. Again, thank you for guiding my in the right direction! :D

    From what you've said it's not clear whether it was detected by NOD32 and you had a problem removing it, or it wasn't detected at all. In either case, I'd suggest you email support[at]eset.com for further instructions. If possible, zip the file, protect the archive with the password 'infected' and attach it to the email as well.

    Unfortunately, I highlighted the file and ran NOD just on it, came up empty. Infected files have been deleted. I am well aware that no one program can do it all, but was so happy to send this bugger into cyberspace.
