Hello-This is my first post on this board and hopefully I will get some suggestions from those of you know your way around a PC better than me.

I was checking my startup files and came across 3 EXE items that I don't understand. I did a search on this site and came up empty. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

1. Lxfzkm.exe
2 wbxcvu.exe
3 omadminc.exe

Could potentially be viruses or spyware. Download the Yahoo toolbar with antispy at http://toolbar.yahoo.com and get the Windows defender from Microsoft. Run a full scan and remove any items that appear. See if that helps.

Posted Image to BC. The first two did not show a result googling on their name. The third one belongs to a program called open mail. If you type msconfig go to startup and than highlight the name of those exe's is there a path behind it?Please post them.

Try to run microsft online test to rule out any malware issues. What kind of safety software do you have ( antivirus/spyware)?

Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, you can submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, 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 use Norton, Counterspy, Adaware and Spybot.
I cannot find "omadminc" in my startup anymore. Maybe the spyware cleanup from Norton cleaned it out ?

I will try the above suggestions and see where I get.
Thank you

Use Windows Search feature > More advanced options to locate locate the following file. To do this, go to Start -> Search -> All files and folders -> More advanced options. Checkmark these options:
- "Search system folders"
- "Search hidden files and folders"
- "Search subfolders"

Type in the name of the file and then click "Search" to look for the file(s).
