I am in the process of repairing an XP Home pc for my neighbour's son - so far so good. However, I have noticed a number of folders containing a file called bashgplsurf.bin. Can anyone tell me what these are and where they come from? I thought bash was a Linux shell.

EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

Hello, not being able to find any info on this we should try to upload it and have it scanned.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
<filepath>suspect.file

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/

Thanks boopme. I'll upload this later today. I don't believe the files are related to anything malicious -neither AVG nor MBAM reported anything on them, although I did remove a few virus/trojans with each of these scanners. I'll see what Jotti makes of it later.

OK - I had a number of the bashgplsurf.bin files scanned - nothing found. Maybe they are harmless after all.

I think they are harmless. May have been a personal folder of the previous/other owner.
