Thread: Startup Virus?

  1. #1
    i have xp pro and when i open msconfig it says a program starts called WINDFIND.exe in the windows\system32 folder. is it a virus? it tries to access the internet occassionally and mcaffee firewall stops it and i always say no. mcaffee virusscan finds nothing when i scan it. is this an actual windows file? i dont think its from any other program installed. can anyone confirm this??

    I couldn't find anything proving that it's a virus(google searched)
    It may still be malicious(anyone remember openme.exe? )
    have you done an adaware scan yet?

    I found this: Windfind programming
    And found something about Acrobat reader... it looks innocent to me!

    Well just uncheck it with MSCONFIG and see what it does!
