I'm running Windows XP Pro and the error reporting that XP has, I keep having a error report that comes up about once a day called "bargains.exe" and it says it needs to close so I close it. It runs in ZoneAlarm. How can I fix this and what is it?
This is what you find about this .exe file when you search for it using google. It is spyware. I would run Lavasoft AdAware and remove it straight away. If it runs in Zone Alarm, you must have given it permission to do so. Be more careful what you give permission to, or change your firewall.
Removing it from ZoneAlarm will only stop the program from accessing the internet (calling home). I would remove it fully, since then you don't run into any risks in case your firewall fails. You also free up system resources by doing so.
