I'm running Windows XP Pro Service pack 3 with all the latest updates.
I've been using MS Security Essentials to protect my machine along with
PCTools free personal firewall and Malwarebytes free.
Unfortunately, my family uses the machine as much as I do, so I can't be
sure that they stay away from bad sites or bad downloads.
Today I ran the MS Sec.Ess. scanner (full scan) on the machine. About half way
through the scan, PCTools popped up a message telling me that a service
was trying to attach to the kernel:
I'm concerned because I've never seen this before and it has an odd name. Can
you help me figure out if I am infected?
