Do you know or have you ever heard of a virus that would put a file EUSEXE in the task manager?  

Tell me if that is a legitimate program and I'm just paranoid and that will be fine too.


Thanks.

From that link

I can't find anything on woohoo, and nothing useful on dwlog.  For the rest:

DkService.exe- From Executive Software's Diskeeper defragmenting utility - a replacement for Windows Disk Defragmenter. Used to schedule defragmenting on a regular basis and not required if you do so manually on a regular basis

SBMX- sbmx.exe SoundMAX MPU401 MIDI device emulator for x86 VM DOS games/apps (for Win9x only)

Promon.exe- promon.exe System Tray icon for Intel PRO series ethernet adapters giving access to the diagnostic features

ICH Synth-  eusexe.exe Sound related and can be disabled without affecting performance although advanced sound features may be sacrificed. May be related to Compaq PC's with "SoundMAX integrated Digital Audio" (Analog Devices Inc.) devices

thank you so much!!  We have been overrun with viruses on the laptops that our people have out in the field.  The damage is done before it comes back to the office to get new updates.
