Hey, while running autoruns and using the start-up database to disable some of my start-up programs, I found shmgrate.exe which autoruns shows to be Outlook Express Windows NT User Data Migration Tool Microsoft Corporation c:\windows\system32\shmgrate.exe but the start-up list tells me its Shmgrate.exe ibot4.exe Added by the GASTER TROJAN! . Notice that the file names are not the same, I don't have an ibot4.exe, so is this file really Outlook Express? Thanks for any help.

As long as shmgrate.exe is the correct "spelling" and is located in %SystemRoot%\system32\shmgrate.exe" OCInstallUserConfigOE you have nothing

Is that only on XP? I'm trying to fix a Firefox MSI problem with it taking over as the default browser and there is suggestion this tool can be used to fix the problem, but I've also heard it only works on XP. Thanks!
