Received this message from the Event viewer, Help and Support Center ;

his problem may occur if the computer is infected with a variant of the HaxDoor virus.

The HaxDoor virus creates a hidden process. Additionally, the virus hides files and registry
keys. The executable file name of the HaxDoor virus may vary, but the file name is frequently
Mszx23.exe. Many variants of this virus put a driver that is named Vdmt16.sys or Vdnt32.sys on
the computer. This driver is used to hide the virus process. The HaxDoor virus variants can
restore these files if you delete them.

I'm not sure this has infected my PC, but it does carry on like it might be the piece of dirt that is fouling my system.

Dirty Chickens !!

Can anyone tell me are there any reccomended Virus scanners that can find and destroy this ?

When you don't have to worry about your computer anymore, you can start
living again !
