    Hi,
    Recently I started having weird processes popping up in my Task Manager: A57E.exe, AA9.exe, 934CC.exe, A782.exe. Their origin is in C:\Users\Alex\AppData\Roaming. Everytime I kill one of them it pops up again in about 30 seconds. Even after I delete the executable, it reappears soon after. McAfee didnt find anything in that folder. Is it some kind of virus/spyware?

    Alex

    What AV/AM apps do you have running on your PC to prevent these attacks? I, as many others, use MS Security Essentials, which includes both AV and AM protection.
