    Hello,

    I left my Dell laptop running a Sophos anti-rootkit scan overnight. This morning I found six extra windows open, which looked like this:
    App crash.
    They were named:

    pgrhbx.exe
    xcshfl.exe
    tvbgvq.exe
    bgqrmm.exe
    lhftkp.exe
    dwrcdn.exe

    which looks like six randomly generated letters for the application name. I'm not sure if this is anything to do with the rootkit scan I was running, but I'm a bit concerned by it. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I'm running Windows 7 Prof 64.

    Cheers,

    Tim

    These are not known files. Possibly viruses. Run Anti Viruses and scan for Mal-ware\add-ware. If you need help on this, ask.
