My neighbor's computer has this pop up "runwallflip.exe" every time he starts up his xp computer. What is it, and how can he get rid of it? Thanks. I googled for it, and it brought me here.

What security tools/scans has your neighbor performed thus far?

Tell your neighbor to search for that file. They can use Windows Search feature > More advanced options. To do this, go to Posted Image -> Search and click For Files or Folders... or just press the Windows key + F key on the keyboard.
  • Click All files and folders.
  • Type the name of the file under "Search by...criteria below...All or part of the file name"
  • Click More advanced options and check these options:
    • "Search system folders"
    • "Search hidden files and folders"
    • "Search subfolders"
  • Then click "Search" to look for the file.
-- Vista users can refer to Windows Vista - Using the Search Function or Understanding Instant Search
-- Windows 7 users can refer to How to Search in Windows 7

When they find the file, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
