Hi,

I have this suspected Malware in my system that is hampering normal operations.

When I run an application "Windows Inspector" that traces all process currently running, it shows an application "HPmsnt32.exe" running. The path for this file is %windows%\system32 and the description is "HP Compaq Presario driver file".

I do not have any HP or Compaq device on my system and this file does not exist in the specified directory.

I have tried to remove this by killing this process but the process re-appears. The process deletion log shows multiple instances of the process killed.

Spybot does not detect this neither does S-T-I-N-G-E-R neither does my anti-virus shield AVG 7.0. My Virus database is updated.

I did have userinit32 funny virus as well as sdbot but they have been removed (hopefully)

;) If any one can help I would be highly obliged. :tazz:

Regards

Sandeep
