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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
