Hi.
Recently the following has been happening:

Upon starting up Windows (xp sp3), I get a warning from Spybot TeaTimer that a program called tv_enua is trying to make some sort of change to the registry. I haven't received this message in the past and I have no idea what it is all about.

So I googled tv_enua, but couldn't find anything conclusive.

I checked opened CCleaner, went to Tools and clicked Startup. Among the startup tasks I found this one:

Key: HKLM:RunOnce
Program: tv_enua
File: RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\WINDOWS\INF\tv_enua.inf, RemoveCabinet

I looked in the location C:\WINDOWS\inf and found these two files:
tv_enua.inf
tv_enua.PNF

So, the actions I've taken so far are:
1. Denied changes to registry that it has been requesting
2. Disabled above mentioned startup task

Does anyone know what this is?
And if it's something not good, how best to get rid of it?

Thanks!
