Just recently my computer was doing weird things, but got pronounced clean.
Now I have a new item. Today, Ad-Aware sees BroadcastPC object.

BroadCastPC Object Recognized!
    Type              : File
    Data              : GLKD.tmp
    TAC Rating        : 7
    Category          : Data Miner

    Object            : C:\Documents and Settings\Guest\Local Settings\Temp\

I've had no guests on 6/27. I did have guests 6/26 and there are 3 files remaining from 6/26.
TAC page has no entry. Any clues? Is/was it serious? What's it broadcasting?
