I posted this in another forum (Firewalls, security etc.) so I thought I better pos it here.
My neighbor brought his laptop over this morning and he has this process running in the task manager,
the process is this "524EVmon.exe." I Googled it and there was one entry saying something about
porn sites, but I checked the rest of pc and I don't see anything.
We ran Superantispyware and malwarebytes antimalware, and nothing.
I went through all his programs and I did not see anything that looked out of place.
So we were wondering if he was to use End process" would that take care of the this?
Thank you

Hi roc1911

Ending the process in task manager will not do much good as once the PC has been rebooted the process will start again.

I think your best course of action is to follow this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Once you have posted your log, one of the Bleepingcomputer staff will be able to help you remove the offending file and any other malware which may be present on the PC.
