File with random name running in Processes
Posted on 2006-11-30
When checking what processes are running on my WinXP System there is one process which starts from the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP folder that has a different name every time I start the computer. I have WinTasks Pro and it lists the Scotty Dog Icon that is used by the WinPatrol program. WinRasks Pro does not list any details about the program. I do not have WinPatrol installed.
I am concerned that it is a malware program but can not find any program that catches it.
I run Windows Defender and Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent all the time.
I have run SPYBOT, AD-AWARE SE and the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool all of which say that there is no Malware Software on my computer.
Should I be worried about a program that changes it's name every time it runs?
If so, can you suggest a GOOD program to run to find out what it is.
