    I have Webroot Spy Sweeper (recommended) and it keeps coming up with 2 start up alerts. One is from Ebates which will be taken care of and the other is win mail service. It's location is pghmcizs.exe and it's in start up folder HKLM:Run Services. I have no idea what it is and can't find it in the start up registry or anywhere else on my computer. Therefore, I can't remove it. Any suggestions?

    I just googled for the win mail service and didn't come up with anything that matches your item. Maybe someone else will read this that has knowledge of it.

    Thanks guys. Didn't work.

    I ran another search thru my files and found this:
    Name: PGHMCIZS.EXE-12859D83.pf
    In Folder: C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch

    I tried to open it but it wouldn't let me. Don't know if I should try to delete it or not. I couldn't find it on my startup list either. Maybe if I knew what everything is on the startup list, I would know more!

    You can delete the entire prefetch file. It will be created again as you use Windows. If that file shows up again, there is more to do.

    You could try the Pest Patrol online scanner also.

    I deleted them and my Spy Sweeper alerted me that they were there still. As soon as I delete it from the Spy Sweeper, it's right back there again. I am running the PestScan now to see what that comes up with.
    Thanks.
