Does anyone have any information about the executable file called 'lockx.exe'? I have scanned my complete computer with a new version of McAfee Virus scan. McAfee did not detect it. Any ideas? Thank you.

According to the BC startup database, which contains information about many programs, the existence of lockx.exe is caused by serveral worms. As removal of these worms can be trickly, I suggest you post a HJT log for review by our volunteer staff of experts; the instructions for which are found here:
