I am not sure which froum to use concerning an "exe" file that keeps on appearing ( after I erase from registry, start-up etc.) The file is called "zykeja.exe" and seems to interupt my Internet Explorer when running. It shows up in the task Manager and when deleted re-appears instantly. Any advise would be appreciated.
I hope this is the correct forum to use.

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.

Thanks for the reply. I have used HijackThis and with success have eliminated the little rascal. I still do not know what is is or where it came from. When I do a Google search for it I get zip! Am I the only one who has ever seen this thing? It ends up in System32 and will not go away ( until HijackThis). It could come from the Mexican sites I have cruised while looking for things down here.
Again thanks for the help.

Nice job! A lot of malware randomly names itself so its possible its standard variety, but with just a random name.
