Comodo (Firewall + AV system) told me that the program pEaDl06511.exe was trying to access the internet today while I was surfing. I found the program and deleted it and then tried to search for the file on Google but found no reference to it at all.

Does anyone know if this is a virus/trojan or is it just a file related to streaming software ?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

It is difficult to know whether a file is infected or not just from it's name. There are several system filenames that are used by viruses. Some use random names (which seems to be this case).
In any case, you can always try and do a search in htttp://www.systemlookup.com to see if the filename has already been categorized. Some entries might be a virus and also a legitimate file.

When you're not sure whether a file is infected or not, you can always try websites such as:

http://www.virustotal.com
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

They will scan the file with dozens of antivirus engines and will tell you their results, from which you can understand whether the file is really infected or not :)
