DesktopCentral!!!!

I've just had a look and the root of the c:\   on my PC and i saw a folder called  c:\DesktopCentral

I don't know how it got there, i've looked on the web and and found a website about remote access and now i'm a little concerned?

Anyone ever had/know about this??

Good point. Is you PC in an office environment where someone else may install programs without your knowledge?

If not, then start by checking the dates and times that the new folder and files within were created.

To be on the safe side, do the following:

Download and run HijackThis from http://www.hijackthis.de/
Copy-and-paste the resulting log back to that same web site (not here)
Click on "Analyze", and then click on "Save Analysis" at the bottom of the next page.
Finally post a link here to the saved analyzed page.

This will let us know if anything out of the ordinary is running.

Click "Start Menu"
Select "Control Panel"
Click "Administrative Tools"
Click " Event Viewer"
Click "Application"
Sort through the list until you find "Desktop Central"
This will pinpoint when it was installed and or used last.

It's a desktop management software. Probably somebody installed a demo version on your computer for testing purpose.

Similar software includes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_Management_Interface

This type of software is harmless. Don't worry.
