I noticed this newcomer to the Windows folder:

GPInstall

I searched the internet and it turned into a 50/50 on it being a virus.

Your valued opion would be welcome.


(I am in Australia which has a 10 hour time difference)

Better to be safe then sorry. Please go to the Malware section of this forum and follow the instructions at the top. Especially the Click Here link. That will give you several steps that will help you clean up most of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the cleanup process you are still having difficulty, and you may not be, then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

Please be patient as the "Malware Forum" is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the Malware Section, please return to this thread. Please do not post a HiJackThis log in this thread unless asked to do so and then only as an attachment. To attach log, when requested, either change the .log extension to .txt, or put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.

Please post back if your problem has been solved.

Thank you for posting follow up. Good luck on the malware removal. If you have waited over 3 days, you can also post that fact in The Waiting Room.

All the logs indicate that there is no problem but I have been advised to rename the folder 'gpinstall.old' and see if any programme needs it.

regards and thank you for your time... :whistling:
