I found "Barsaka" in the startup list of msconfig. It read - Startup Item: Barsaka. Manufacturer: Unknown, Command :explorer.exe
It looked dodgy to me so I looked it up on google, but with little success. There were a few accounts of people being told to remove it, and it looked as though it was in some virus databases.
Heres the Hijack This reading -
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Barsaka] explorer.exe
Never found anything like this before so do you reckon I should use the "Fix checked" function on Hijack This, or use a virus removing tool? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
