Hi, first post! Great site! :thumbsup:

My PC slowed way down, and while trying to reboot it, I got a popup that said something about a process called NJB.EXE - I think it said it crashed - I should have written down the full text, but unfortunately I only wrote down the file name.

I searched via google, and this website, but cannot locate any info on this process, apart from 2 hits on this site where some-one had it listed in their scan results.

I've done searches on my PC but cannot find this file.

I'm running both AD-Aware SE and Symantic AV 10. Scans from both show no issues.

Any ideas on what this is?

Welcome Keithf

Looks like you found NJB.EXE in a StartDreck from a posting last year. I found it in a couple of other logs but nothing more about what it is or does except the helper removed it so its probably some sort of trojan.

Go to jotti.org
Browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis. I'd like to see them.

Then, if your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5 in "SAFE MODE".
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Run Ad-aware and NAV again while in still in safe mode.

Reboot in normally and perform these online Virus scans to ensure nothing else is on your system:
