Hello,

I recently noticed a program that occasionally tries to access the intenet (I don't let it) and haven't found anything about it when doing a web search:

C:\PROGRAM FILES\BCTO\TESW.EXE

Also, next to the Startup items check-box in msconfig it says Sauw.

Does anyone know what the heck this is?

Thanks!

I'd be more apathetic if I wasn't so lethargic.

The best place to start is to follow the path in program files to "BCTO" and examine the files in the folder to determine what the program IS. Look, for example, for a "readme" or help folder that will give you a hint about what the application is supposed to do.

Easy way to find out... go to our submission page here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php

And paste the following path in:C:\PROGRAM FILES\BCTO\TESW.EXE That way, one of us can take a look at it. If you want to see for yourself, you can submit it to Jotti's:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/


That will at least tell you if it is malicious.
