New to the forum and after looking at some of the detailed answers I'm impressed. Thanks for taking the time to help!

Here's my problem:
After manually removing a few spyware .exe's running on an XP Home machine (end the process, delete the .exe in C:\Windows and/or removing the application if it's in C:\Program Files\), I found a process named "ulzRWHGB.exe" --caps exact as typed.

Here's one of my methods of spyware removal....I know it's not terribly scientific :tazz:
1)check the task manager and look for anything that looks suspicious
2)then Google it to confirm my suspicions
3)then manually remove it

I also use AdAware and Search & Destroy

The problem here is that "ulzRWHGB.exe" doesn't get any hits on any search engines. So my only real question is this: has anyone heard of this process?

I can't find anything on C:\ or in the registry related to "ulzRWHGB.exe" (even doing *ulz* searches). When I try to end the process via the task manager, the number of instances gradually increases to around 10 before backing to 2 instances---very strange anyway, never seen anything like it.

Thanks for reading!
