Hello All,

This week my computer was running slow again.
I seem to be like the guy in the old Li'l Abner
cartoon holding the umbrella in the sunshine but
it is raining on him INSIDE his umbrella with this
virus thing. Almost enough to make me break down
and buy a MAC.

Anyway the new intruder or intruders make two files,
evPvO17M.exe & hki347.exe which bring the computer to
a near standstill as they spawn several copies on boot.
I see many of them running at about 2,000kb in the
Task Manager Processes tab.

Have spent the entire day yesterday on this with no other
result than finding a work around until my anti-virus
folks can make a cleaner to get rid of the mother file
that spawns these critters which so far remains undetectable.

The work around is to go immediately to the Task Manager
Processes tab on startup and remove the files as fast as
possible. It seems that the creation of new ones only
happen at re-boot.

You can find them in the user/local settings/application data
or temp folders, sometimes in both.

I would be interested to know if anyone else has seen this

Turns out my "work around" didn't work.
Even after removing them from the Processes
tab in the Task Manager, they continue to spawn.

Only thing is to check when the computer
gets unbearably slow and start clicking them off
