Hi xblindx, Thanks for the reply.
I did as you suggested and ran that sucker through VIRUSTOTAL. Now I have to admit that I'm sitting here feeling way too blond as I haven't a clue as to just what the results mean. Here's the URL to that results page --> http://www.virustotal.com/reanalisis.html?...a1a3bb903c442a6
<--maybe it will tell you something that it isn't telling me.
Hi Budapest, Thanks for the reply.
Honestly, I have no recollection of ever having downloaded that little bugger. It doesn't show up in my DOWNLOAD folder, but that doesn't really matter. What worries me is that it never rang a bell with Avast! when I ran virus scans in normal windows, yet Avast! freaked out when I ran a virus scan in safe mode.
I know that there are a lot of evil little things that get caught when scanning in safe mode that aren't detected in regular windows.
I checked my add\remove programs and that CDFix thing isn't listed in it. All I have for it is an icon, in a folder, on my desktop.
The other thing that worried me about that thing is the fact that it has \catchme.exe at the end of its name. I did some Googling and have found that catchme.exe seems to be both a part of a legitimate program for getting rid of spyware AND an actual Trojan.
Anyway, I want to get it off of my system but right now all I see is the icon. I know I can delete that, however, I'm not sure if that will get rid of anything evil that might there too.
As soon as I get this posted I'm going to run a scan with Kaspersky on-line virus scanner to see if it comes up with anything evil.
Thanks for the replies guys.
