    Hi everyone,

    Recently, I was rooting around in the ol' registry (as is my habit). I remembered something I had read in the forums about startup programs and how you could remove them from the registry if you didn't need them. So I went to check the situation and this is what I found:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\alyjgfqy.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\taskswitch.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\dubezlek.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\esehevoq.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\fprmgznw.exe
    "C:\Program Files\McAfee\McAfee Shared Components\Guardian\CMGrdian.exe" /SU
    RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\swpmbeba.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\tlbczxjy.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\tyshmopq.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\udloqsnn.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\ulqwkqcb.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\ymtucocl.exe

    Now, the only two items I recognize here are the McAfee and the Nvidia
    ones. Taskswitch, I suppose, is understandable. Is there anyone who could possibly tell me what the rest of these are for?

    Best way is to drop them all into google, I'd do it for you but I don't have anytime at the moment.

    Well i couldn't find any of the unknown ones on Google, but they look like some dodgy stuff to me.

    Check one of the exe's at:

    http://www.kaspersky.com/remoteviruschk.html

    They are probably all related, see if KAV's Single File Check identifies them as malware.

    If they come up clean check the file properties for clues.
