I recently had an issue where my window's task manager would not open up because it said that the administrator had disabled that option. Odd thing is, I am the only one that uses this computer. I initially thought that I might have a virus so I ran ESET NOD32 anti-virus scan. It did pick up some malware and the problem appears to have been resolved, but now I am paranoid and have been checking task manager to see if any processes or applications might be running that might be suspicious. That is when I ran across the process "zghyfgva.exe". I haven't been able to find what this process relates to. Any help would be appreciated.

i'm a new user and currently debugging my system with bleepingcomputer help

i had a trojan that would generate new exe and dll files with crazy randomized file names.
your mystery file does sound/look suspicious.

all these guys seem to like the Malware removal tool. and it did pick up lots of problems on
my system that mcafee and adaware missed.

see my post (trojan vundo.gen.k) from early am hours 10/9/08; or pretty much any other post in this forum i've see the techs post the link and instructions for the malware program.

happy hunting.
