Process abc123YImia.exe running -- virus or spyware?
Posted on 2007-03-28
Today, I noticed a new icon in the system tray -- a red donut with a black hole. When I hovered over it, a balloon popped up saying, "Your computer is infected." Double-clicking or right-click had no effect. So, I checked the process list and found an unknown entry, abc123YImia.exe. I ended the process, but the red donut was still in the system tray. I ran HiJack This, Ewido, AdAware, SpyBot S&D, and McAfee VirusScan, but found nothing except a couple of tracking cookies (which were deleted). After rebooting, the process and donut icon are gone. So, my question is...
Is this a new virus or adware program? (Google searches found nothing.) Is something hiding on my system?
