The link is to our startup database, and you can view it and further link(s) to information by clicking it, and anytime one of those kinda questions pops up that startup database
can be found at the top of the main discussion page.

Also, individual files that are questionable can be uploaded at one of several
websites for analysis, free.
http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html

Basically, you simply need to know where on your PC that file resides.
Use Start > Run > (set the advanced search mode to find all files hidden or not)
copy/paste that name into the search box and let windows find it for you. Then use the "browse" at that site above to locate it again, and upload.

For future referance.

Right now, check out the Hijack this log analysis here. Post a log. We'll help you further.

One-on-one, just you and your computer.
How it got there might be able to be seen with careful analysis.
If not, remember that anti-virus software depends mainly on updated definitions to catch the problems.

No one alone is right up-to-date generally, so what one misses, another can find.
The best ones in many cases are free. (More widely used, longer in the business, perhaps?)

Thats why it's best to run several anti-spyware programs,
one resident anti-virus, one firewall and don't hesitate to have one or more online anti-virus programs do a scan occassionally when a question comes up.

The Virus::Total scan will indicate a dozen websites it picks up it's information from,
many of them offer online scans ... that's how they get some of the "late-breaking"
news about what is new and not nice online for us to wander into.
