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.
