    I believe it is spyware. I think I saw that come up on Adaware one time.

    the 'dllz' bit seams rather suspicous to me.

    For a guide to removing spyware, have a look here. It'll show you how to configure Ad-aware to scan and kill everything and tell you what to do if even that doesn't work.

    I've found that by going to symantec.com most virii can be found and removed rather easily. They seem to be the best going at the moment, give em a shot

    i would suggest u search teh web for a software firewall program. if u do have spyware on your computer a firewall will stop it from sending out your details / receiving instructions, and therefor saving ur bandwidth.

    a good format now and again is always a good idea tho

    it´s a virus,

    I do not say what it destroy, but it´s not a simple spyware

    after you delete this on the startup menu, ou have to remove his command in the register

    the key is

    Hkey local machine/Software/classes/exefile/shell/open/command

    you will find a path to the virus in the startup menu but

    the default correct key is %1%*

    the your system will run programs ok!!


    PS. if you can´t run regedit, rename it to a .com file

    Kinds regards
    Fer
