I have recently noticed a running process called Oisoiea which I have never seen before. I traced it back to my Applications Data folder where there is a Oisoiea.exe, Oisoiea.dat, Oisoiea_nav.dat and Oisoiea_navps.dat which were added 4 days ago. I am tempted to just delete them but am curious since when I googled "Oisoiea" I came back with zero matches and usually I can find references to any virus or application on Google.

Not sure if it's relevant but a few days ago I started having problems with my Firefox browser. It works fine for a while then stops responding. When I close it it remains in the background and I have to terminate the process from Task Manager. This is getting very tiresome and I haven't managed to find a solution to it by following the advice on forums.

Has anyone else ever come across this?

Thanks :thumbsup:

Upload this Oisoiea.exe file to Jotti for analysis.

Thanks for that - never seen that site before. It's very useful :thumbsup:
The file doesn't appear to be malicious but it is affecting Firefox for some reason. I'm just going to delete it.
Thanks again
