Hi, sorry is this is in the wrong board, but wasnt sure where to put it. Here goes,

I was playing about with spybot's advanced tools, and in the 'System Startup' it identifyed something with no value and no command line, and told me it was this:

"Current filename:

Database status: Not required - virus, spyware, malware or other resource hog
Filename: system32.exe

Added by the _AGOBOT-KU_ WORM! Note - has a blank entry under the Startup Item/Name field

Source: Paul Collins Startup list"

I decided to check it out in MSCONFIG and in the Startup section there are indeed two items which indeed have no name and no command.

Ive searched the whole drive, with system and hidden files included, for system32.exe, but nothing comes up.

Can anyone please shed any light on this before I screw anything up? :thumbsup:
