A few weeks ago the fine people on the Hijackthis side of this forum helped me clean up a particularly malicious infection... Since then, I've been noticing strange (ie: never-before seen) files popping up in folders all over my machine.
The newest one is: "bit9.tmp". It's shown up in my C":\Documents and Settings\USER\Local Settings\Temp" folder.
I don't know what this is, but it's big(ish): 18 000kb.
I googled it, and all I found was that it's part of the "GOOGLE UPDATER" package, which I do not have installed on this machine (unless it's hidden).
The file won't disappear from my temp folder. I've run ATF cleaner a few times, and rebooted, but the file doesn't disappear.
The file description claims that the file was modified in January of this year, and yet, when I search for the file, it doesn't show up anywhere but in this temp folder... and it only started appearing a few days ago...
Anyone have any thoughts on what the heck it might be?
Thanks a million,
