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
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!
