had some computer issues about two weeks ago. Whatever it was blocked my internet connection, disabled my firewall and virus protection, erased all my system restore points, etc. , etc.
A funny process was running on the task manager: 2g9oda1col.exe
took the machine in and had it "cleaned". basically they backed up my dated and wiped it, reloaded windows. The file is still there.

What in SamHill is it?

Hello, the best way to find what it is,is to post a DDS log.

Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Thanks. I took it back and they used some utility to clean it. And then, when it was still there, they manually went and deleted it in numerous places, one being the back up file they made for my data. I was just wondering what it could be, and if it was the culprit for all my woes.

hard to say with out seeing it. Whoever 'they' were knew as they took it out. So they knew what it was and can be removed. I would guess as it was an exe.. it was some sort of info collector.
