Hi I've just discovered this program in my list of start up programs, it's 'buxixwr.exe' . I've unchecked it and scoured the internet for it but there is no reference to it with google . Can someone tell me what to do here? do i need to delete it somehow/. I've put a search in files and folders and nothing comes up. Any ideas would be great as to what this is....thanks in advance Roz x

Did you find that processes running in Task Manager?

Did you use Msconfig to uncheck it? Was there a file path listed to the right of that entry? If so, open Windows Explorer and navigate to that path to see if its present. You may have to Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files, folders. Double-click on My Computer, go to Tools > Folder Options and click on the View tab. Under Hidden Files and Folders, check "Show hidden files and Folders", uncheck "Hide Protected operating system Files (recommended)", uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types", and hit Apply > OK.

You could be dealing with just a registry entry remnant and the file has already been removed by an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, that usually results in a startup error where Windows says the "file cannot be found".

Anytime you come across a suspicious file which you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.
