How can I tell if this is a valid file or a trojan ?

 

because the valid name in this spelling does not appear in the start up data base, . .

 

I found this in msconfig, . .and I have an Adobe updater but the names don't match the data base.

Yes but that the problem

 

your advice describes

Name:     Adobe ARM
Filename:     AdobeARM.exe

 

but my start up search is conducted from the words AdobeARM as found in msconfig.

There is no .exec anywhere.

 

It seems to me that normally the exact spelling, (to the letter), in such searches seems important

so I thought I'd make my point at the same time play it safe, however at least I learned where this

file is from the msconfig, . . so I went there and I do see the file Adobe Arm, . . .

what confuses me is the ways these files are spelled in the msconfig, . . . since trojans are deceptive,

I really don't like to mess with the chances there is one in my system.
